Owned by the BreadTalk Group, RamenPlay specialises in ramen pork bone soup stock made with high quality imported ingredients, using an in-house recipe developed by their team of chefs from Niigata, Japan. RamenPlay styles itself as having a 'playful' concept, though I fail to see how this theme is incorporated.

Ambience at RamenPlay is modern contemporary. Decor is minimal, and colour themes of their outlets is black-and-white classic. RamenPlay staff uniforms add to the overall experience, as they are dressed in theme colours with suspenders. Layout is clean and orderly, but furniture comfort is just average.

Service at RamenPlay is quick and efficient, and also rather mechanical in nature. Dishes come out quickly, but style of service is similar to fast food... little interaction, quick, efficient, and a little souless. Decent enough for dining, but not particularly memorable or outstanding.

Food at RamenPlay, as the name suggests, is mostly focused on ramen noodle soups. While the noodles are pretty good, with a springy and bouncy texture and slight bite, the highlight is their rich soup base. RamenPlay has a good variety of soup options, such as miso, shoyu, tonkatsu and more, and the cuts of meat are quite high quality. This also means that an average meal at RamenPlay is quite pricey, expect to pay around SGD $20 plus per person.


The Sanpou Ramen features a trio of meats; Toroniku (braised pork cheek), Cha Shu (braised pork belly in char siew sauce) and Buta Kakuni (braised pork belly in special sauce). Soup is rich and flavourful, but not too overwhelmingly salty. Excellent!

Loved the Super Yuzu with alcohol option, the sweet citrus taste is refreshing on the palate, and is a great cooler.

Considered a speciality here, the Bamboo Chicken is minced pieces of chicken steamed on a bamboo piece, which imparts a natural fragrance to the dish. The egg on the side didn't add much though.
