    It's difficult to find good ramen in kl but their creamy shio ramen is worth a try. I like to have my ramen with ajitsuke tamago so I added the egg. Not bad too.

    A little pricey, but durable. I'm absolutely amazed by their chawanmushi. Their miso base is great, and God, their pork is just foodgasmic.

    IMPRESSIVE! Their CREAMY SHIO RAMEN has a thick Tonkotsu Broth, coupled with thin, firm and tangy noodles and well roasted Cha Siu. Extremely good service, though price is at the higher end.

    Consistencies is the key to its success. Eaten at Santouka in my home ground California, while visiting Singapore, with Japanese friend from Hokkaido, and now in Malaysia. Pork cheek, shiyo, excellent

    The specialty ramen is the pork cheek at RM40. Can't tell the difference between the premium meat and the normal meat. Hmmm.

    The Shio Toroniku Ramen seems to be their signature Ramen over here. The meat was prepared to the right texture (soft) just nice chew with.

    Probably still my favorite ramen place. Go for Shio soup base. Don't forget their pork cheeks though can be salty for some people.

    It is pricey, but you get good quality ramen, which is handmade in Japan and shipped here. The pork cheeks are divine and the Gyoza are the best I've ever had.

    Maybe an overall of 2/5. Goku ramen at mid valley will have a better tasting ramen. You can tell from just the texture of the noodles.
