I've been here a ton of times, and I always get the spicy egg drop ramen. The soup is like the chinese egg-drop soup, but with spice! I prefer that to the original miso-soup ra...

Good bowl of Ramen 12/6/2009

During the summer of '02, I went to Ramenya almost everyday. My friend ended up trying EVERY bowl of ramen on the menu; a feat any regular of this place would be impressed with, as there are a couple dozen different varieties. From original Shoyu and Miso ramens to the Veggie ramen and the Spicy egg-drop "Tan-Tan men," you are certain to find a bowl that is right up your alley. They have seafood ramen, thai spicy-sour ramen... It's absurd how many different bowls there are. In addition to the ramen, there are various dishes, including beef and broccoli, shrimp omlet over rice, yakisoba, and a mouth-watering pork fried rice. The gyoza are good, and the chicken salad is shockingly good. The biggest surprise, however, is the COLD NOODLE (when in season), a plate of ramen noodles in a cool soy broth, with piles of shredded chicken, julienne carrots & cucumber, thinly sliced egg, bean sprouts, and pickled ginger. Sidenote: I went to Daikokuya in response to all the people putting Ramenya down, and saying Daikokuya was THE place to go. It was THE WORST culinary letdown of my life. The broth was not nearly worth all the hype, the noodles were no different than those at Ramenya, and the selection... well... WHAT SELECTION?! I'd gladly decline even a free meal at Daikokuya. Unless I live next door to D'ya, I'm smashed off my ass, and every other place is closed, I won't return. I'd take Ramenya over that dreaded place, ANY day. Pros: Variety-r-Us, Nice Staff, Oh-Man-That's Good Pork Fried Rice Cons: Quality of dishes is variant more

too salty! 10/29/2008

Since i was in the mood for ramen, instead of eating on sawtelle i decided to try a new ramen place. I had their shoyu ramen and it was just ok. the broth, however, was waaaaay too salty. I had to add water to my bowl cuz it tasted like the cook had spilled a cup of salt in my ramen bowl. i just didn't think it was all that great. more

A Rainbow of Ramen 8/21/2008

Have you ever tried Kimchi Ramen? How about Curry Ramen? Well, you should. And to do so, come to Ramenya. It looks like a hole in the wall, but the line is out the door. Two people can eat for $20 and the Barley /Oolong - (not sure what it was besides delicious) tea that automatically comes to your table like magic alone is worth the trip. Come on - spend less than $50 on dinner for once! Bring Cash and enjoy the slurping.... Pros: A wide variety of Ramen noodles, CHEAP! Cons: Parking, wait can be long more

vermin infestation 7/28/2008

OMG!! I go there about 2-3 times a month. Not anymore. The place has been closed by the dept of health due to vermin infestation. It's your call if you still want to eat there. Pros: food is really closed Cons: closed due to vermin infestation more

RE: Great noodles, terrible service 11/30/2007

I always liked Ramenya until today December 1st, 2007. We all finished our final from UCLA and went to this restaurant at 1:20pm. We are 10 people and ha've been appromiately waited for 20 minutes outside the restaurant as usual. We found out that they started sitting many 2 or 3 people groups who came after us. One of my classmates start questioning this Japanese young lady if we can sit different tables and in order to save time, since they do not have any table bigger than 4 people, so we do not have to sit and eat exactly the same time. She starts getting excited and told us that they do not have space for 10 people. She was trying to do her way and put all of us sit at the same location inside the restuarant, so we have to wait all 2 or 3 tables empty to sit us. She can not push customers away and blabla. I thought it was miscommunication and I have just recommended this restaurant to entire my class, so I was trying to explain to her that we really do not have to eat the same time and some people are starving and rush to go. She started screaming at us to go to somewhere else. Their service never been great and often give me wrong bill or dish, but this is the worst time in my life in Los Angeles. She immediately talked to an older lady and a Japanese guy all in Japanes, and all three went out the door told us to go somewhere else or wait until all the customer left when they eventually have space for 10 people. She told me classmate that he is being harassing her and it is no poin to talk to him anymore. Can you believe that? I decided not to go with the group and talked to her that we can understand each other. She told me that I am being rude and our group has blamed on her service. Does she really know what does SERVICE mean? This restaurant needs to put a big sign about not dine with large group more than 5 without being rude or embarssing more customers. Pros: Thumbs down, horrible service and attitude Cons: Need to put a sign about refuse to dine with a large group more

Best Ramen selection 11/16/2006

I've been here a ton of times, and I always get the spicy egg drop ramen. The soup is like the chinese egg-drop soup, but with spice! I prefer that to the original miso-soup ramen. There's a small parking lot in the back. you should note the place isn't open on Wednesdays. Pros: good ramen Cons: small place more

Great value...tasty Ramen 11/13/2006

The Ramen portions are very generous, the service is quick, and two people can eat well for $20...what else do you need? Pros: Food is great, portions are large, inexpensive Cons: Small, drab dining room...no beer or wine more

best ramen in west la 11/5/2006

if you're in the sawtelle area and hankering for ramen, then go to ramenya. i get the kimchee ramen for some spice or the miso ramen when i'm in the food for more hearty broth. the gyoza and side of fried rice are also very tasty. service is prompt, the ambience is basic, utilitarian and clean. if there's a wait, then write your name on the sign up sheet outside. the line moves pretty fast. they're now open 7 days a week now so check it out. Pros: ramen, gyoza, fast service Cons: parking lot can be full so need to find street parking more

Healthy, cheap and delicious 11/4/2006

I noticed this place was packed every time I drove by so I figured they must have good ramen - I was right, it's great. Menu has nice selection, and everything was $6-8. They have other Japanese dishes, too, including perfect gyoza. Decor is kind of run down, and service is curt but efficient. Park for free in the residential neighborhood north of Olympic. more

giant bowls of tasty ramen 11/4/2006

I tried the spicy egg-drop soup with shredded pork, and it was amazing - the gyoza also had a great crispy but soft texture, and tasted very good. The portions of the noodle dishes are huge (I don't know how one person could finish one). The environment was plain, but clean, and the service was friendly and quick... overall, a really good experience for $7-10 a person. Pros: Great noodle dishes, awesome gyoza more

Best Cha Shu Ramen 1/1/2006

Ramenya has the best Cha Shu Ramen. The Cha Shu just melts. I have had Remen at about 8 different places including Asahi, Chabuya, Orochon, and Ramenya has the best Cha Shu Ramen. I haven't tried Shi Sen Gumi yet. The prices are pretty good and the portions are a good size too. Their side dishes are good, but on the smaller side. The place is pretty plain, like an old cafeteria or something, so you'll probably be disappointed if you are looking for a cool atmosphere. But if I had to choose the best Ramen, especially in West La, I would tell people to go here. Pros: Good Value Cons: Parking, Small Place more
