I have seen this restaurant for a long time--years. Today i decided to try. 22,5CHF for a bowl of simple ramen?? The broth has lack of favor. Noodles overcooked. The chashu resembled nothing like a chaschu. It has well be a slice very thin pork belly. Folks who rated this high have no clue what ramen should taste like. Try... More

Nice selection of very good Ramen at reasonable prices. Service fast and polite, place clean if not a little Spartan (but that's modern interior architecture I guess)!

Well located in the city. Modern place for a simple lunch. Friendly staff, helpful. Fast and efficient. The food is good, they mainly have ramen but many variations. Not only the ingredients you can chose but also the soup itself (3 or 4 different soups as basis). The soups are really good, light and tasty. I had the chicken ramen... More

I'm absolutely fan of Japanese food. Namamen does a good job, they taste special and my favourite is the seafood Ramen. I go often there. Attention: Swiss price, so little bit expensive for tourists and people on a budget. Worth a try !

Ramen taste fine, not too bad, European standard. The place is clean and price is reasonable. Have to say the ice cream is really nice cause they have special flavour e.g. sweet potato or green tea.

Make sure to check out the adress before as it is very discrete. Modern, minimalistic design with friendly staff. Good choices for vegan dishes (they offer ricenoodles instead of ramen). Some choice of vegan side dishes. Udon noodles are only available with a animal based soup. Overall I liked the food very much.

High quality quick service. Will go back many times. Had squid miso, roasted superb, next time is the hot one. Sides are also good, makes a snack a meal.

Good and authentic Ramen dishes, centrally located in Basel. However the atmosphere is rather cold - could do with better lighting and more comfortable seats. Recommended for quick meals.

Very friendly (yet sober) place to savor a Ramen Soup. I recommend the Miso one with Chashu, but there is a wide choice for every taste !
