Zenya Noodle Bar, Eastwood

GET YOUR RAMEN ON. NO RAMEN, NO LIFE. This is where I went for my first date with my partner. Love. Zenya Noodle Bar in Eastwood is a nice little joint for Japanese food.
There's also an array of Bento Boxes and sushi options if you are not interested in the ramen. I would certainly suggest ordering a ramen though. The top and below photo is of the Cha Shu Ramen ($10.80) which is a soy flavoured ramen broth topped with roast pork, bean sprouts, spring onion and seaweed paper. 

For $3 with the ramen you can also get a side of gyoza and "side salad" as listed on the menu which is actually a piece of lettuce. (below)

For $17.80, I also get the regular chef's selection of sashimi of salmon, king fish, scallop, prawn and fish. 

Highlights: The Ramen was lovely, the pork was so lovely to eat. I've been here a few times and the ramen never disappoints.The broth is homely and fills you up so you feel warm on the inside. There are some other great ramens as well including spicy flavours and thicker broths if that's what floats your boat. I like how you can add on little side dishes like the gyoza or you can add a small ramen to the Bento Boxes.The gyoza is nice, with thin skin with a slight crunch. I'd also recommend the bento boxes - you can see a previous review here on other ramen and bento box.

Suggested Improvements: The Sashimi portions are not as generous compared to other local Japanese eateries. The pieces are a bit small so perhaps save your sashimi visits for other favourites like Tatsuya (West Ryde) or Hukuya (Eastwood). It can get very busy so be prepared to signal when you need something (eg. water). I wish there was also a proper side salad with the gyoza or they should fix the menu to manage expectations.
