History of Ramen Nagi

Chef Ikuta honed the art of ramen making in a hole-in-the-wall ramen house in Fukuoka, Japan. Personally dishing up bowls of savoury ramen in front of each customer, his technique evolved over the hundreds, if not thousands, of bowls he skillfully prepared as he incorporated feedback from acclaimed critics and loyal fans.

Making his name as the first restaurant in the world to serve a different type of ramen every day for all 365 days of the year, Chef Ikuta’s inspiring talent went further than just endless creativity when he beat over 30,000 chefs and walked away with top spots in the Tokyo Ramen of the Year Championship for three consecutive years.

The ramen chain has since expanded throughout the region with 22 outlets in its native Japan and 28 overseas franchised branches. Come on down to Singapore's outlet at Suntec City Tower 2 now!
