What a great Japanese place in Browns Bay at Auckland's North Shore. Friendly and fast service, fresh Asahi beer on tap. The real deal: authentic, tasty Japanese food with great flavours and fresh, good-quality ingredients. Highly recommendable.

I love Ramen & Japanese/Asian Women so this place suits all my needs. Good service and very clean. It is busy but we got a seat and the service was fast.

Best Ramen in Auckland. Have been going here for years now and never disappointed, my favourite of course is Tonkotsu. The place has recently had an facelift which hasn't affected the food at all it is still great I will be back again soon.

Went for dinner with two friends. Busy Saturday night. I was running late and my friends had ordered already. The waiter came quickly and took my drink and food order. My friends orders arrived but mine arrived before they'd eaten only a couple of bites....More

A regular visitor here since it first opened with about 3 tables, it has since expanded considerably and the good food has remained consistent. There is plenty of variety in the menu to suit everyone with the usual Teriyaki chicken option. A favourite of mine...More

RAMEN TAKARA is not your typical Japanese restaurant, instead of featuring tempura or sushi, we put our heart and effort into our ramen and rice dishes. We even make our own noodles everyday using the finest flour, mineral water and fresh eggs. Whether you are picking up a meal on the go, having a family dinner, or enjoying a drink with your friends, this is the right place to enjoy the refreshing and plesant dining experience. Bookings are not essential but we recommended that you make a booking in advance to avoid disappointment, especially on weekends!
