Marutama Ramen (The Central)

AsianJapanese
Marutama’s specialty is the thin Japanese noodle – ramen – in one of four soup bases (chicken, spicy chicken, prawn or nuts). The soups are mildly flavoured and almost caramelin tone, an ideal template for the wheaty flavour of the ramen.

Awesome sides with good ramen

Tried many different ramen shops, and Marutama Ramen has very good texture. They serve a few different soup based ramen & I recommend the chicken flavoured! Add a tamago in your ramen for a nicely seasoned boiled egg, slightly watery on the inside.
The sides are exceptionally well done. One of the must tries is the Yaki Char Siew (comes in slices and served with lemon) - nicely roasted and melts in your mouth. For non-ramen fans, try the Char Siew Rice ($5) its a low budget alternative that can fill your stomach. 

We also ordered a Gyoza, which was not bad, the serving's decent, soaked in a little vinegar.

bad review for service

This is one of the worse place to visit. Although i agree that their food is edible but service is atrocious. It appears that "only" customers who frequent their outlet often knows that they have "hidden" menu for some food items like their fried gyoza. The gyoza shown in their menu is steam and it was not clearly shown to customers. When we receive a steam gyoza we are shocked and when asked to change to a fried one the staff said that we did not tell them early and only people who frequent them will know they have a fried gyoza. it is very strange that how would normal customers know that they have a fried gyoza when they did not even mention in their menu!? For this experience i would never go back to the restaurant again.

Satisfying as Ramen

I've never come across a good ramen place in singapore till this! And ever since, I've been tryin' out a lot more ramen places that serve authentic Japanese ramen in an authentic Japanese setting.
The soup here is marvellous and the noodles juicy! However, for people with a small appetite, you may have to keep your stomachs empty for awhile before having a bowl of ramen here, as the rich texture and heavy flavour of the soup can seriously fill you.
Service is alright here too! :)

Bad service

Supervisor here gives terrible service. Never seen anyone worse. If you want to try the ramen here, please go ahead. But do be cautious about their bad service

THE place to go for ramen

Murutama's Spicy Chicken Ramen always delivers. I've been here three times and the noodles were cooked perfectly on each occasion. The spicy chicken broth is a welcome departure from the usual pork based stocks and is hearty without being too heavy. Perfect for a rainy night - or any night really.
