This festive ramen spot in the heart of Williamsburg makes an ideal choice for locals and visitors alike. Consider it a safe space you can take your parents, in-laws or friends. Run by chef Takatsugu Kishikawa, the Williamsburg branch serves ramen that's just as good as its sister location in Park Slope.
First things first: You must order the sake. Try the "dance of the demon," or Tengumai Junmai Yamahai sake ($48). This traditional sake is best served cold, so it makes the perfect complement to any hot bowl of ramen. Start the meal with an appetizer of pork buns ($4 each). The steamed buns are filled with pulled pork, hard-boiled eggs, onions, tomatoes, lettuce and special mayo. This quick and easy appetizer is a fan favorite and pairs well with anything on the menu. If you prefer dumplings, try the wasabi shumai ($6.50). This appetizer comes with five shumai, steamed to spicy, pork perfection.
For your entree, you must try the spicy miso ramen ($13). True to its name, the ultra-spicy dish comes with flavored pork stock soup topped with chashu pork, hard-boiled eggs, scallions, corn and bamboo shoots. Subpar ramen joints often over season their broths with spicy to mask their mediocrity—not so at Ramen Zamurai, where the flavor comes from the rich, meaty broth. If you can't handle the heat, try the samurai shoyu ramen ($12). Soy sauce adds savor to chicken and pork stock topped with more chashu pork, nori, hard-boiled eggs, scallions and bamboo shoots. This alternative matches its spicy cousin in flavor, but not in fire. All in all, if you’re looking for tasty ramen, reasonable prices and a fun ambience, Ramen Zamurai is the place to go.

We are thrilled to bring a truly authentic Japanese cuisine to Brooklyn. We take pride in our craft and go to great lengths to make sure you get an honest Japanese meal, full of flavors and true to form.
Ramen Zamurai opened its doors in July 2017 in Brooklyn, New York offering customers a varied selection of different types of authentic Japanese Ramen. Our rigorous preparation process is at the highest standards resulting in the best product for you. Traditional techniques are used to deliver the perfect Ramen, which is paired perfectly with our rich broth infused with authentic Japanese flavors. Our process starts with simmering down the bones for 10 hours. Once the bones are broken down, it is then simmered for another 10 hours to extract the true bone broth, yielding an extremely rich and flavorful base.
We offer an extensive menu of mini-sized rice bowls, appetizers, Cha-shu and premium Japanese Beer and Sake. Ramen Zamurai offers two locations in the Brooklyn area. Please take a look at our locations to see which is convenient for you.
