Ramen is a Japanese dish that has become very popular in Singapore. There are many ramen restaurants here, but not all ramen is created equal. To help you find the best ramen in Singapore, we have compiled a list of 8 ramen that you should try!

1) Keisuke Tonkotsu King at Orchid Hotel

Address1 Tras Link #01-19, Orchid Hotel, Singapore 078867
Phone+65 6636 0855
Opening HoursDaily 11:30 – 15:00, 18:00 – 22:30

Keisuke has complete control over how his ramen is prepared, from the heat of the soup to the amount of chicken oil and richness of the broth. You can also add your own ingredients, such as noodles created to your specifications and toppings like pork, seaweed, and spring onions to create a perfect ramen bowl in your preference.

Tonkotsu ramen from Keisuke is a favorite among pork-based ramen soup fans. One of the things that distinguish Keisuke’s tonkotsu soup from the competition is its thickness in texture, milky appearance, and salty flavor. It’s one of the most authentic options you’ll find in Singapore.

Key Differentiators:

  • Free flow of hard-boiled eggs and bean sprout
  • Customised ramen
  • Pork based ramen soup

Customer Review:

Sooooo yummy. The broth was brewed to perfection, complemented with a perfect onsen egg. Bean sprouts & grounded sesame were great additions. Would recommend you to enjoy a bowl with a bottle of green tea cola.


2) Sapporo Ramen Miharu

Opening HoursMon to Fri: 11:30 – 14:30; 18:00 – 22:00
Sat & Sun: 12:00 -15:00; 18:00 – 22:00

I’m not sure if it’s unique, but I believe it is exquisite beauty in a relaxing ambience. Miharu is the name of a little hamlet on Hokkaido where Japanese customers line up to sample the cuisine. Ramen is always served in an authentic setting, regardless of where you choose to dine at the restaurant. Sapporo, in Hokkaido, has its own take on ramen noodles, which are known as “Sapporo-style” curly yellow noodles. You may completely satiate your craving for this kind of pasta at Miharu.

Key Differentiators:

  • Best Sapporo-style ramen noodles 
  • Calming ambience
  • Curly yellow noodles

Customer Review:

The tsukemen here is my favorite. The texture of the Hokkaido noodle is perfection. It probably would not win any fans if you like super-thin noodles. The noodles here are thicker like a Korean instant noodle, but not soggy at all as it is served cool with a piping hot dipping sauce. After you finished your noodles, you can ask for the broth to add to your leftover sauce to slurp it up, just like in Japan…yum.

Address6 Short Street, Singapore 188213
Phone+65 6697 4992
Opening HoursDaily 11:00 AM – 06:00 AM

The Ramen House is all about delivering a hearty ramen experience. The 30-hour simmering procedure ensures that the broth is rich in flavor, milky, and smooth, complementing the noodles, meat, and vegetables perfectly. Their most popular dish, Volcano Ramens (S$12.90), comes in three levels of spiciness.

The Ramen House serves more than just ramen; it has one of the most comprehensive selections of well-liked Japanese foods in Singapore.

Key Differentiators:

  • 30-hour boiled broth
  • Wide range of dishes
  • Opens until midnight

Customer Review:

The place is accommodative and the food is priced relatively reasonably. I like how the ramen was made; not too heavy and salty. The place is also very accessible just nearby the highway. A great place for dating and hanging out with friends.

Phone+65 6338 3186
Opening HoursMon – Sat: 11:30 – 22:30
Sun: 11:00 – 22:30

In the film Tampopo, you can enjoy ramen from both Hokkaido and Kyushu. If you adore curly noodles in miso soup topped with common ingredients such as pork, corn, butter, bean sprouts, and garlic, go for Sapporo-style ramen from Hokkaido. Kyushu-style ramen is ideal for those who enjoy the thick, milky pork-bone broth and thin, straight noodles.

Key Differentiators:

  • Great combination in Black Pig Tonkatsu Ramen
  • Flavourful broth and springy noodles
  • Hokkaido and Kyushu-styled ramen

Customer Review:

If you like pork and Japanese ramen, this is the place to dine. We ordered a pork Ramen with extra sliced pork and chili flakes on the side, a tonkatsu (breaded, fried pork) set, and gyoza (pan-fried dumplings) to share.


5) Torasho Ramen & Charcoal Bar

Phone+65 6970 5055
Opening HoursDaily – 12:00 NN – 3:00 PM; 6:00 PM – 10:30 PM

Torasho offers a variety of ramen flavors, including classic with a contemporary twist, dipping ramen, and dry ramen. Classic if you want an unadulterated ramen dinner; dipping ramen if you want total control over your ingredients, and dry ramen for a genuinely distinctive dining experience.

It’s a curious name for a bowl of ramen, but it’s where Torasho ingenuity comes in. Their most popular dish is a flavorful combination of the sea’s many delights: king crab, lobster, ama ebi, uni, and ikura; all beautifully complemented with a cold bowl of ramen noodles.

Key Differentiators:

  • Cold ramen
  • Customised ingredients
  • Affordable

Customer Review:

Super nice ambience and lightning. Tonkotsu ramen was good – chewy texture, rich creamy broth and perfectly torched meaty chunks. Tsukemen (Singapore best) was also served with a cute pig fish cake and came with really thick seafood broth, although the predominant taste was mainly bonito.


6) Ramen Santouka at The Central

Address6 Eu Tong Sen Street, #02-76 The Central, S059817
Phone+65 6224 0668
Opening HoursDaily 11:00 – 22:30

Santouka’s Pork Cheek Ramen (Tokusen Toroniku ramen) is a must-order. Santouka offers four soup bases to complement the well-marinated and delicate slices of pork cheek. The pork cheek is put away separately; make sure to dissolve each slice in the hot soup before eating it.

It is a wonderful addition to any ramen dish. Santouka’s traditional Japanese low-temperature egg is beautifully prepared, with the egg white like custard and the yolk creamy.

Key Differentiators:

  • Wonderful onsen egg
  • Excellent pork cheek ramen
  • Well-marinated and tender slices of pork 

Customer Review:

A restaurant tucked at a corner of Central. The pork cheek ramen was amazing! Juicy in taste and extremely tender in texture, each piece leaves you wanting more. Probably more well-balanced ramen in terms of macros. Price is a little steep, the premium is paid for the pork.

For those looking for the genuine flavor of Hakata-style ramen, a bowl of Shiromaru Motoaji is an excellent choice. It’s the story of tonkotsu broth served with thin noodles, pork loin, cabbage, black fungus and spring onions in a bowl. Diners love to discover more and more about the flavorful hearty

Key Differentiators:

  • Classic Hakata-style ramen 
  • Rich aromatic and non-greasy broth
  • Wide range of menu

Customer Review:

Best Ippudo in the world even better than the one in Japan. Their new siphon ramen is extremely amazing, the broth (salmon flavor) simply deep and flavorful. The noodle is delicious, chewable, and yummy. The siphoning technique of the broth really deepened and accentuated the salmon flavor. They even provide rice to be put on the broth for the closing act. The 3 condiments: fresh shallot, chicken, and Japanese bamboo shot complimented the ramen nicely.

Address30 Victoria St, #F1-07, Chijmes, Singapore 187996
Opening Hours11:30am–10pm (Mon–Sat), 11:30am–9pm (Sun)

Ikkousha is a well-known global brand with over 40 shops around the world, and its quality and authenticity are comparable to that of the best. Their Hakata-style ramen are thinner than usual ramen restaurants in Singapore, giving them a springier texture.

The noodles are ideal for clinging to the creamy broth of their Tonkotsu Standard (S$12/13), so every sip is packed with porky richness. They’re also well known for having a birthday gyoza discount, giving you the same number of gyozas as your birthday.

Key Differentiators:

  • Springier-textured ramen
  • Specially-made Hakata style ramen
  • Sleek strands of noodles

Customer Review:

Brought my Family there on 6/4/21 at around 1230pm to celebrate my dad’s birthday and the staff there was super friendly and attentive even though the shop was full of customers. The food was great and had a pleasant time there. Kudos to the staff!!
