“Awesome food and friendly staff!”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

I ate here for the first time and can't wait to come back. Having lived in Japan and eaten my fair share of Ramen, Tanpopo is as good as you would get in any Ramen restaurant in Japan. It's delicious! The staff are friendly and helpful and the delicious menu is reasonably priced. I used to put up with the rude and unhelpful staff at Mentatz Ramen when I visited Auckland, thank goodness I have found somewhere that blows them out of the water!

“Yummy Food”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

I am a big Ramen Fan and I was quite satisfied with their food. It came in big serves and you can add extra pork for 7 bucks. The service was good and their dumpling was tasty too. Overall a good experience.

“Best Ramen noodle in Auckland”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

If you don't know the place you would probably walk pasted. Interior setting is cheap looking but don't judge the book by its cover.No mistake this place is the best place to have Japanese ramen. I have been dinning there for past 10 years and never been disappointed. In fact I travel to Japan once a year and haven't found as good ramen as this. The broth is sensational, very simple but absolutely yummy +. It's located in central Auckland so if you are visiting go to Tanpopo as it is worth it.

“A return customer with Japanese experience”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

I have had good noodles all around Japan. Tanpopo can match that. It's inexpensive yet good. Highly recommended for any budget -conscious travelers.
