I just came back from a food tasting invitation at Marutama Ra-Men, located at the basement of Plaza Sentral Senayan building.
Marutama Ra-Men is serving authentic Ramen (Japanese homemade noodle) with Toripaitan (chicken broth) as the soup base. The owner is Tetsuya Kudo-san who opened his first Marutama Ra-men shop in year 2001. The Marutama logo is a basketball-esque which represented the love of Tetsuya Kudo-san to his wife who was a professional basket player in Japan. So far, Marutama Ra-men has expanded the restaurant business in 6 countries - Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Hong Kong. Marutama Ra-Men in Indonesia is under Gading Food Group that also owned Fish & Co, Cosi, Sticky, Grillbox and Motto Motto.
A nice simple Japanese wood decor with about 50 seater in the dining area and 20 seater in the private rooms.
