poor quality control
me and my wife both ordering pork ramen... and when I ate the pork slice I suddenly can taste the awful smell of the meat... I ask the waitress and they dont have sollution for that. asked the chef to come out and let them taste it, he says the meat is still okay to eat, it just a bit broken. *facepalm*

They Ruined a Good Ramen Chain
My recent visit to ramen nagi just left me fuming. 1. Service is downright poor. Only 1 experienced employee working, with 2 trainees (not in uniform) joining later on. No one picked up the 15 calls I did for direction and when they did the girl who was obliviously no excited working for a ramen chain gave me a completely wrong pointer. The washroom was obviously not cleaned and flooded with water. 2. Ramen was so so. The texture noodle was spot on, but the soup was just oily, and missed that "Hakata Tonkotsu" range of silky umami. 3. The charsiu itself was also a miss. Dry and uneventful. I may have to try the original Ramen Nagi in Hong Kong to give them a proper judgement. But skip the outlet in Jakarta!

When it openend, this place was very busy and you had to wait for half an hour to get a table. Now the place is often deserted. I also think it changed owners (new staff, new uniforms, new interior, different menu layout). There is no more Japanese chef. Sushi is on the menu but often not available. Anyway, we always go for a rather unigue Ramen that they only serve here: the Miodorio. You can choose chicken or pork and also how hard/soft the noodles should be and the spiciness. The latter never makes a difference. This particular Ramen has a somewhat Meditaranean taste with olive oild and cheese. Very nice and not that expensive. The portions have become smaller after all this time. 600 ml. beer bottles are available (Bintang and Heineken) and they even have Sapporo and Guinness. Service is good, sometimes the Japanese welcome and goodbye yelling is somewhat over the top.
