Still the best ramen joint in town if you ask me! That, and you know the place is really good when the Japanese tourists sitting at the next table are slurping their noodles away. 128514
Anyway, I had their aka ramen with hard noodles and level 5 spiciness. Opted for pork belly and the pork was so soft and melt in your mouth. It’s been a while since I last ate here, and being hungry, I decided to get extra noodles... which I ended up not being able to finish because the serving was enough for me as is pala haha.
Not pictured (forgot to take a photo) but I also ordered their pork katsu roll but I’ll pass on this one and don’t recommend it. The taste was just average.
Place was packed as usual. We were quickly seated though since we were a few minutes early from the lunch rush (and since today’s Sunday, the seats were quick to be filled). The bill took a really long time to get to us though. Usually don’t really mind waiting 5-10 minutes, understandable that they are busy and all that, but I was in a hurry today so the wait seemed even longer than it is. Still, it was a good visit overall. Will definitely come back again, next time maybe I’ll try whatever limited edition ramen they offer.

Ramen Nagi is one of the first restaurant concepts that offered ramen bowls, which piqued the interest of Filipinos who were used to the typical mami. Albeit a bit pricier than what we're used to, Ramen Nagi found its way into the hearts of Pinoys, young and old alike.

A couple of years after it first launched, I revisited this "classic" ramen restaurant with my close friend, E, to have a quick catch up over dinner. Since it's his birth month last August, we decided to avail the buy one, get one on Butao King Ramen (Php 390), but we split the bill (tipid hack alert!!!). 128513

When the ramen was served, I was a bit disappointed that the presentation wasn't as nice as it used to be. ☹️ I took a sip of of the soup, aaaand it was quite bland. And too oily. 🙁 In fact, I didn't finish the soup because of the oiliness!!! The noodles were firm, and the serving size of the noodles was just right. The chashu slices were a bit dry. I felt like Ramen Nagi's ramen is now too commercialized, so much so that it lost its authenticity already. ☹️

Service was just okay. Though, I was also bothered at how cramped the spaces between the tables were... I felt like my personal space was being invaded. 128517 Anyway, I'd probably still visit them in the future, only if they have interesting limited king flavors. As for their Butao King ramen, I'd most probably skip that next time.

Giving 2.511088 for this visit, but rounding up since we got it for an affordable price. 128517

Super late post. 127858

Not much of a ramen fan (but he is), not sure how to describe my experience but I based it from HIS taste standards with ramens.

I believe I ordered the original king (butao) and gyoza (my fave anywhere), he ordered the new clam chowder ramen.

It was huge bowls and being a newbie with ramens, it's really overwhelming. We started eating the gyoza since that's the first one served. It was legit, with the togue in it made it more interesting to savour.

I tried to finish my bowl but it's really plentiful for me. It's satisfying I must say since we're both very hungry when we dined there. Both ramens were superb, from it's flavour, soupiness, sauciness and all that I can think of. Just so authentic! I would try another one, I just wish they have petite bowls too. 128514

Ps. It's pricey too, so yeah.

when ramen was the "it" food, i was able to try several ramen restaurants. and for me, then, ramen nagi was my favorite, until i tried Ippudo and Mendokoro Ramenba. i also loved Erra's Ramen (which is now The Vest Ramen in Town).

so, i usually come back to ramen nagi for a ramen fix since it's near my area especially when they have set meals during weekdays. and when i want to be adventurous, i will try their limited king. guess this was one of the reasons i keep coming back -- they have something new to offer.

lo and behold, they offered Manila Kings which is a fusion of three filipino popular dishes. i love Binagoongan and my mom's beef caldereta so i made sure to try them.

just like any limited king, you can only customize your noodles and spicy level.

for the Binagoongan, i tried hard noodles (which is actually a staple for me) and level 3 spiciness level. i was a bit worried since it may really taste like the dish that it's better with rice. but i was totally surprised when i tasted it. it only had a hint of bagoong which made all the difference and the spiciness was just right. the bagoong did not overpower the ramen which i think made this a good fusion. i finished my bowl and i came back to have the last sip on its last day to featured at Valero.

i never tried Bicol express since i'm not a fan of the viand.

then i tried the cheesy kaldereta. the first time i had a cheese in my ramen was at Tsukumo Ramen and i ate this ramen the same way i did the one at Tsukumo-- not to mix the cheese. if the Binagoongan had a tinge of bagoong, this had kaldereta taste at first sip. not sure if it's a good thing for kaldereta lovers but for my palate, it wasn't. it's like sipping the kaldereta sauce which i never do. for a normal kalderata meal, i pour the sauce over rice and mixed them instead. when i tasted this, i realized that this fusion doesn't work. they just don't work well with noodles. then i thought, they should have tried sinigang fusion instead since i like sipping the sour soup. hehe

each ramen costs P450.00 but they were only available for a limited time.

RP's Ramen Nagi is like an al fresco style restaurant. it's located at G/F Faura Wing, where Chef d' Angelo was standing before. like the one at SM MOA, the restaurant's a bit cramped and you need a perfect spot to enjoy the ramen since it tends to feel hot especially during lunch time.

staff are always friendly and knoweledgeable of their meals which is a very big plus for me.

Extra spicy red king on a cold rainy night is sooo perfect! The broth is bold, complex, and flavourful. Noodles are also perfectly hard. Really cant go wrong with nagi!

Not a good ramen day.. I wish i got my servers name.

I had lunch by myself today, and got bad service from a rude waiter. First, i felt he "threw" the menu in my table and didnt even look at me. After i filled out the order form, he got it without saying a word-didnt even repeat my order.

Half-way through my food, i found a strand of hair. 128530

Asked for the manager and she apologized and i asked me if i wanted it replaced. Of course i did.

I wouldve been okay at this point, but..

Then they couldnt produce an official receipt so they gave me a calculation of my bill on scratch paper. After paying, i waited for the OR for a few minutes before having them say that they couldnt give me even a hand written invoice.

So.. Bad server-man, hair, no receipt. Definitely a first from Nagi.

One of the best ramen place I have tried in manila. Their ordering system is similar to ramen restaurants in Japan, wherein you have a base ramen and you can modify the level of the sauce, spiciness, choose your preferred meat part (shoulder or belly), noodle texture and include some add-ons for a price. Since I'm not a fan of spicy foods and i feel like eating something that taste light, I ordered the Butao (original king). What I ordered for my dad is the Red King which has a level 5 spiciness. He said its soup tasted like the korean kim chi. While my sister ordered the green king (which by the way is my fave here in ramen nagi) as she likes basil/pesto pasta and cheese. The servers where also very helpful and attentive.

I like Ramen Nagi because they have big servings compare to Ippudo but when it comes to taste I prefer Ippudo, Ippudo is more flavorful. I already tried Ramen Nagi's Butao, Green King, Black King and their limited the Red Miso King. Yummy! :)

The broth was good and really milky, best part is you can customize the broth depending on you taste:)

Black King and Butao were kind of perf especially the noodles! At first I doubted that it is authentic, lol. But when I knew the price I started to doubt my doubts. We tried the said ramen and it is great! The flavors were surprising! Boo for the noise and packed place. No space to walk to. Oops.

If you fancy a hot dinner date, Ramen Nagi won't fail you, or at least their Red King Ramen won't. With a level-5 spiciness (level ranges from 1-10, yes theres a level 10!), it has been the store's bestseller. Additionally, their Ramen can be personally customized according to your liking (and your tolerance to spicy food) so you can alter the texture and the overall taste of it. Unfortunately, I may have to deduct one star due to their small dining area and noisy staff which I think is weird. Overall its a great choice with sumptuous Ramen offerings for a reasonable pricetag: Php390.00 - Php410.00.

Yeah. Finally tasted the butao king
Really the best among the rest.

Good marketing by nagi: every month they launch a special
The tomato ramen caught my attention. Will catch that soon. Now cooking: ebi ramen.

Ramen Nagi is always good. Green King is good. I liked that the pesto's not as strong as I feared it would be. But since I'm less adventurous, I still prefer Butao King. 128522

I'm so glad Ramen Nagi decided to open in Robinsons Place Manila. Now, I can have my favorite extra hard noodles without braving the traffic.
