Shizuku Ramen - Abbotsford

Japanese
Shizuku Ramen is not your average Japanese restaurant. That’s partly because we serve the best ramen in Melbourne, and partly because our menu has a creative flair. Unlike other Japanese venues we also offer a serious selection of craft beer. And while we could go on about how ramen and beer is the perfect pair, there’s only one way to discover it for yourself. Our signature Tan Tan Men, Shoyu Ramen, Miso Ramen.

Flavour comes first, whether we’re talking about our traditional ramen stock that takes a whole day to make or the unique brews we import from all over Asia. Not sure which beer, sake or umeshu matches your food? Just ask.

The Shizuku Ramen kitchen team serves innovative dishes with a traditional touch. Solo diners can take advantage of ramen lunch deals, groups can book ahead and feast on Izakaya-style sharing dishes (try the karaage popcorn chicken), and we can organise everything from Japanese gyoza to ramen burgers for private functions.

    Good selection of food and drinks. Excellent ramen, although pan fried gyoza could do with a bit more time. Tap water in bottles without lid were already on all of the table, I would think this is a bit risky with COVID going around and people talking / eating without mask in a restaurant. Another small minus in that when paying, our server turned around asking another server to add on public holiday surcharge without informing you beforehand. This should have been informed and confirmed before so the service is more professional.

    Don't be perturbed by the number of negative reviews on other platforms. Most of them are from delivery service customers who don't read the meal description properly, as they deliver ramen kits that need to be cooked at home, perhaps in order to preserve freshness and some level of authenticity and flavour. Our dine-in experience was superb. They had very friendly and polite staff who helped us decide what to choose from the elaborate menu. There was a great selection of entree's, share plates and ramen to choose from, as well as an extensive sake and beer menu. They have some of the best veggie/vegan options as well (highly recommend the vegan duck skewers!). The food was brought out pretty quickly so it was hot, fresh, and flavoursome. The Shoyu ramen had a great depth of flavour and the egg was perfectly cooked. I would have expected a few more slices of pork however it was mostly made up for with a generous serving of noodles and broth. The atmosphere was slightly lacking but that could be down to a general post-lockdown apprehensiveness. Plus, a few sips of hot sake in and everything starts to warm up anyway. Overall, it was an extremely pleasant dine-in experience; made possible by friendly staff, a well-curated selection of options and most importantly delicious food.

    Really disappointing. Food quality, service and value for money all below expectations. This place used to be fantastic, but all the food we ordered was really underwhelming, especially the lack of depth in the ramen broth. Won't be going back!

    Their actual menu in the restaurant was vastly different to the menu on their website. Unfortunately, with our dietary requirements, it left us with limited choices. Disappointing. We felt like victims of false advertising.

    Dined as a table of four. Half the meals were wonderful, the other half less so. Love that they offer vegan options but not all were winners. Service was speedy. The biggest let down was the price. Over $200 for four which is pretty excessive for the area. Drinks are $10 +, mains are mostly over $20 and $8 for one bao. This really let’s them down. With so many options ont he area, I’d likely go elsewhere.

    Discovered these guys from an OpenTable search for Ramen. They had a very interesting menu, with a lot of non-traditional ramen, which was what ultimately drew us in. The interesting add ons (like the Hainan Chicken ramen that i ordered) worked in its favour, however the ramen would need to step up in such a competitive Melbourne food landscape. I will be back to try the others on the menu as there is a lot of potential here.
