User reviews

  • Unfortunately this establishment doesn’t work. We ordered beef shoyu ramen as well as lemon chicken ramen and both were mediocre at its best. The broth lacked flavor, the eggs were over cooked and the noodles were dense. The restaurant is very disjointed. In one area they were serving food, in another area they were playing host to local soccer games and on the balcony, they were hosting a birthday. We were also served by three different waiters, which makes it difficult to tip properly.

  • Not a great experience. The food is extremely mediocre for the price that you are paying. I had a big clump of uncoocked noodles in my ramen. There are nats flying all over the place that you have to fight so you can use your spoon. I won’t be going back, there are much better ramen restaurants in Cape Town that do not charge as much as Bu Ya. It’s definitely not R80 for a main meal more like R125.
