Nothing special. Ordinary ramen with expensive price. Staff not really kind and slow. I order one ramen one ocha for 120K IDR. Taste so disappointing.

Served with two size small and medium and different level of spicy. Also can choose between done or half done for the noodle. So, taste is all in your hand.

I've been to place since 2007 when it was still a small restaurant without any branches. It was the best ramen in Jakarta that i know at that time. Jigoku ramen and Tonkotsu ramen was the most favorite ones. The tonkotsu ramen until now the tadte wasn't any different. It was really good especially when you had with chasu pork.... More

I love Ramen! I love ramen among other noodles. There are a story behind it. Old family receipe, long hours making the fresh noodle and the soup just to find perfection to satisfied their customers. Ramen 38 is the pioneer and one of the best Japanesse noodle shop in Indonesia.

For me, Jigoku Ramen in here is the best rame in Jakarta. It just taste authentic japanese and served at right temperature. After a meal, you will be served a nice free cold konyaku jelly for the dessert. I always come back here whenever I want a ramen.

Sanpachi is literally the first ramen house that i've ever tried before, im not sure if they are the pioneer also. They have different level of spice, but level 2-3 is good for me as more than that you cant really feel the broth.

This is the ultimate test in your temperament for ramen, various level all the way to "burning tongue"..be careful not to choke..it could be dangerous ....if you are not here as a thrill seeker other food items are good.., fried rice, chicken karaage, great for quick 30 minute lunches..efficient service...

Thank RonySoerakoesoemah
