Hidden germ...

Discovered the restaurant just recently. Was impressed by the food, not so much by the setting. But what is more important? A wide variety of dishes. Everything is prepared to order, things are nicely arrangend, everything tasty. The staff is fast and provides decent service, but not overwhelmingly friendly. I can easily cope with that because prices are very reasonable. I'll be back that's for sure.

Ramen not recommended

I've been here several times, but today's visit totally turned me off.

We ordered a bowl of ramen, salmon sashimi, grilled set and cola wings. When the ramen arrived at the table, we could immediately smell a sour smell. Thinking that it could be our imagination, I took a sip and confirmed that the taste was off.

We informed the server who said it was "impossible" for the ramen to be bad, but brought it to check. The manager returned with the bowl, telling us that it is not sour, but is just the smell of one of the ingredients. He then placed the bowl on the table, and left without offering to replace the item.

We made a serious attempt to give the ramen a chance, but when I tasted the pork I knew that it had gone bad. Without taking so much as two mouthfuls, we asked them to clear the dish. We've had the ramen several times before and know that that was definitely not the taste.

The service was also terrible too. We had to ask repeatedly for something before it was done.

The rest of the food was decent though. It's interesting to note that most diners didn't order ramen even though the place is called The Ranen Stall. Go figure.

We definitely won't be back again.

Ramen at the Ramen Stall

Discovered the restaurant via hungrygowhere. We had ramen (of course!), sashimi don and vanilla with black sesame ice cream. The ramen was good, but the soup was not thick enough. The salmon was very fresh, and would have ordered more sushi and sashimi if we were still hungry. They serve kushiyaki as well.

value lunch sets

I chanced upon this place upon a recommendation by a colleague.

A simple set-up, the place plays a mix of disco Japanese pop and slow Chinese music (what a variance).

I settled on a lunch set which involved a ramen ,a side dish and a soft drink. For my side dish, I had the chawanmushi which I must say was really good. The egg was silky smooth with a relatively firm bite.

Unfortunately, I did not like the ramen as much. The chicken based stock lacked kick and the noodles were too springy. That being said, one cannot complain given the price point.

A unique selling point of this place is that it opens till 5am, which means that you can still get a nice bowl of soup after a night out.

As for service, it is what one would expect from a fast food joint - quick, efficient and no frills.

Not too bad, pretty good stuff for pretty good value

My girlfriend and I were around the area when we decided to go to The Ramen Stall after it was recommended by a friend.

Since it was "The Ramen Place", we decided to go with the Ramen. There are two types of soup stocks, chicken and pork bone. We both chose the pork based stock.

I ordered the "fatty pork" while she ordered the char siew ramen. The staff, although not fluent in English, suggested that we go for the "set lunches" which gave us a bowl of the ramen, a drink and a simple salad for $8.90 instead of $11.90 for an ala-carte order.

We also ordered two sides, River Shrimp and Fried Soft Chicken Bone.

The noodles were pretty well done, the soup is not too bad but not spectacular. The pork and everything else was also pretty okay.

However, the River Shrimp was great! Instead of the usual Sakura Ebi which other Japanese restaurants serve, this was just little shrimp, seasoned with salt and pepper and then deep fried. Who knew such a simple way of preparing small shrimp would make them taste so good!!

The Fried Soft Chicken Bone was strange. It was pretty good, lightly battered and then deep fried. What it was served with was puzzling. It was served with... sweet chilli sauce!! But it was pretty good.

What we didn't try was the vast amounts of Japanese sake and other types of Japanese alcohol there as I was driving. With stuff like the River Shrimp and Fried Soft Chicken Bone, they have loads of stuff as snacks with drinks. Their business hours are also perfect for late nights over drinks.

All in all, recommended for a place for drinks and food.
