Opening hours: Daily, 11:00 – 22:30.

Bankara promises to give the people of Bangkok a taste of real ramen, and we say they succeeded. Known for its rich and delicious ramen broth, the restaurant has become a household name among ramen lovers in Bangkok.

Those who love a rich, creamy and complex soup will love miso butter. Small puddles of melted butter shimmer like gems on the surface of the miso soup, creating a malty umami flavor for an unforgettable ramen experience. You should also try Bankara Original. With chewy noodles, bamboo shoots, and a mouth-watering bowl of tonkotsu broth, it has nothing to do with flavor and covers all your basic textures.

Mensho Tokyo is an iconic ramen bar created by Tomoharu Shono. What sets Mensho Tokyo apart is the creativity, attention to detail and depth of flavor that goes into every bowl. In every bowl you get fresh handmade noodles, meat baked in sauce or grilled over a fire, and steaming broth in every bowl. The menu is replete with excellent dishes such as A5 Wagyu Shoyu Ramen. Placed on top of the noodles is a paper-thin slice of marbled wagyu, marinated for 24 hours and gently grilled for a smoky flavor. In addition, canned egg yolk is added to give you an unbeatable taste experience.

For vegans and vegetables, Vegan Tantanmen is the perfect choice. Composed of dried seaweed, beans, mushrooms, and Japanese soy cream, this umami-infused vegan ramen has all the right flavor notes and is incredibly delicious.

Opening hours: Daily, 11:00 – 21:00.

Address: 999 Ratchadamri Road 3rd Floor, Gaysorn Tower (New Building, Lumphini, Pathum Wan, Bangkok 10330.

Yukihiko Sakamoto founded Menya Itto in Shinkowa, Tokyo with the philosophy of creating a light yet intense tasting bowl of ramen with a balanced taste of land and sea. And that's exactly what you get when you come to the restaurant. The highlight of the menu is tsukemen (dipping ramen). In fact, Menya Itto ramen is one of the most popular in Tokyo. Our favorite delicious Itto Tsukemen. The hot broth is rich, savory and slightly sweet, which immediately catches the eye. You dip homemade cold noodles into the broth and sip them – each bite brings a burst of umami and flavor.

Craving something spicy? The spice maze is a bowl full of flames. The combination of dry noodles, spicy meat sauce, shredded pork, chicharron and vegetables is sure to lift your spirits. Add spicy Gyoza XO to the sides and you have a mind blowing meal.

Address: The 49 Terrace Soi Sukhumvit 49, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10110.

Created in Japan's Ehime Prefecture and Michelin-starred in Hong Kong, Shugetsu Ramen is definitely a must-try. Each warming bowl of ramen is made with Japanese scallops cooked for 12 hours and hand fermented soy sauce fermented for 18 months. We have a soft spot for their Abura Soba. The thick noodles are topped with a mixture of shoyu butter and scallops, topped with a spoonful of dry fish powder and plum yolk, and topped with stewed pork belly. One sip and we guarantee it will become your new favorite.

When it comes to tsukemen, shugetsu ramen fits all the bills. Dry noodles are thick, chewy, and contain a mixture of drool-inducing toppings such as pork slices and vegetables. In addition, the soup is based on seafood and has a unique sour taste that can only be found in shugetsu ramen.

It's easy to see why the IPPUDO ramen restaurant chain boasts an outstanding reputation around the world.

It consists of thin, wavy noodles, pork belly and loin, Ippudo's original tonkotsu broth, spicy minced pork miso, and spicy chili oil for spiciness.

If you don't like spicy food, their Shiromaru Motoaji ramen is very tasty. Served with hakata-style tonkotsu broth, thin noodles, pork belly and a bowl of pork loin. And if that doesn't give this restaurant a spot on Bangkok's best ramen list, then we don't know what will.
