    I highly reccomend Kiraku at Elliot stables

    The Dynamite Ramen is awesome if you like hot food and the Gyoza is amazing

    In past when I have asked Japanese they have recommended Takara in Brown's Bay and it's my favourite. They also have a Takara in Ponsonby but it has less range.

    There's a really good one in Mt Eden, it's called zool zool. Also the one in ponsonby central is really good but pricey. Decent one on Simonds street as well, I think it's called ramen do

    Yeah been to the Ramen Do one, I enjoyed it but I'm not a ramen connoisseur

    Tanpopo in the CBD is the business.

    If you want something a bit more classy for a date, Ramen Takara in Ponsonby/Browns Bay is also very nice.

    Tanpopo has a really nice pork broth. Random trivia is they got the name from the Japanese movie "Tampopo", the movie is based around a ramen restaurant and both the words translate to "Dandelion".

    Glad you liked it, now I feel like some... You can order your noodles straight or curly, plus there is heaps of addons for the ramen.

    I like Ramen Do's "Tuke Men", which is like a deconstructed Ramen or their Hokkaido. However I stopped going because its very salty and they don't have a proper Tonkotsu.

    Will try Tanpopo or Ramen Do this week I think (that's if I don't try the Japanese place before Kingsglaive at Sylvia Park on Saturday)

    Tanpopo was good. Had the miso pork ramen and gyoza. Broth was quite strong. liked the Ponsonby one better imo.

    Kiraku (probably best one in terms of taste) and mentaz (good price for ramen) , also Daikoku (good serving size for price), Tampopo (pretty expensive and not that great in terms of taste)

    Ramen Do has been our regular go to ramen place.. They have a seafood/shellfish based soup base (called the Gyuokai I think) and I find it amazing!

    But as Perplexity has said, you may find it quite salty.

    I used to think that Tanpopo was quite good but since coming back from living in Japan for a year i've found it pretty bad (although I've only had it once)

    I've had much better Ramen in for like 8-900Y even at chain restaurants

    Food may be prepped to cater to a more foreign market here and for locals at country of origin, some people may prefer how they make it from way of origin and some foreign.

    it depends.. your taste buds are cultured and learned from your experiences. If you were brought up somewhere else you would have different expectations of how something tastes etc. I really doubt many are super cultured and traveled enough but even then it matters little as only the personal taste matters to the individual in the end
