Decent vegan tantanmen

Wish there were more vegan options but the tantanmen was enjoyable, although the tofu was a bit sweeter than I'm used to. Staff is friendly!

Awesome ramen! Lovely place

The vegan ramen was tasty, and the tofu had a nice sweetness to it. We also had the crispy beetroot gyoza.

I loved the small cozy interior with the foggy windows. A very cool place to check out, with quick and friendly service.

The Ramen tasted good, but I had way better Ramen before. I wanted the Ramen of the month, but they lacked one ingredient so I odered the classic vegan Ramen.

Toxic Masculinity

Ramen mixed with toxic masculinity. The two men behind the counter were extremely unfriendly, we felt very unwelcome and wouldn't recommend this place.

Great flavor in tantanmen

The first ramen shop in Reykjavik, and they have 2 vegan ramen options: tantanmen and miso. My partner said that the miso was very bland, and that it tasted like noodles in standard miso soup. But the tantanmen was really good! Not too spicey.

liked but not love

it was overall very pleasant - the servers were nice and prepared the food quickly, there are two separate vegan ramen options along with vegan gyoza. i got the vegan gyoza and a ramen. however, i didn’t absolutely love the taste of either, though both weren’t bad. i also didn’t love that the employee cooking my food wasn’t wearing gloves even when touching my dumplings with his hands.

Vegan Ramen

Wish I could give it 5 stars! Really small cosy space, small menu but clear what is vegan. The gyoza were amazing and crispy and the wakame salad was flavourful. We both had the vegan ramen, it was delicious with homemade noodles, perfect for a snowy day.

Pros: Homemade noodles, Quick service , Clearly labelled

Not impressed

Ordered food to takeaway. Got back and realised there was a half a boiled egg on my 'vegan' ramen. Broth was bland but was put off eating most of it because of this error and the potential for the rest of the meal being contaminated. Vegan gyoza were better but not great. Partner who is not vegan said his dish was also bland. Would not recommend this place- for vegans especially.

Pros: Vegan options available, Intimate setting

Cons: Bland food, Vegan food error

I was initially very excited to try same ramen in Iceland, but I was sorely disappointed with Ramen Momo. The restaurant itself is very cute and cozy and it's in a great location.

Staff was great and friendly. The handmade noodles were excellent.

We got both the Vegan Tantamen and Vegan. The broth in both were very bland and lacked any robust flavor. Preferred the Vegan over the Vegan Tantamen as the tofu wasn't marinated in Chinese five spice (wish they described that on the menu since I'm not a fan).

Vegan gyoza was good and crispy.

Pros: Vegan options, Friendly staff, Great location

Cons: Bland broth

Wish I could give 5

Best food I had in Reykjavik. Both vegan ramens are super tasty. Sides and drinks are also incredible. Great atmosphere. You are lucky if you come in when the owner is working- he creates a great atmosphere in his restaurant

Best Vegan Tonkotsu

I wish I could give 5 stars. It was the best Tonkotsu I've ever had. Very creamy and delicious. There are also some nice vegan starters like Gyoza and Kimchi Tatar. Well done!

Great vegan ramen

A tiny, very cosy place with excellent ramen dishes and gyozas. Staff very friendly and helpful in order to order what you like and accommodate your vegan choices. The ramen were great and the gyozas were absolutely great! Prices are decent and the portions are great! Totally recommend this place.

Pros: Vegan options, Very friendly and helpful staff, Great portions

Sounds better on the menu. Noodles alone were excellent.

Nice place, great design on products sold in the bar and on the walls. Very small, but quick turnover so we didn't have to wait long at all. Friendly staff too.

The noodles are made in-house and really good. We ordered the vegan gyozas (spinach pastry with edamame filling, comes with chilli soy dip) and they were tasty. I got the Vegan Tantamen and it was good, but not incredible. The focus was on the noodles and the broth, so very little of anything else. The broth was sesame-based, and it was tasty, but again, just nothing special. The noodles themselves was what saved it for me, as they were perfect. The Tantamen is topped with marinated tofu, bean sprouts, and bok choy. However, I didn't even notice the bean sprouts due to the tiny quantity. The bok choi was literally one small leaf (baby bok choi possibly). It sounded a lot better on the menu than it was in real life.

Pros: Great noodles, Cool place, Friendly staff

Cons: Very little content in ramen

Solidly Decent Ramen

Tiny space, great people. The gyōza were fine but nothing special. The Tontamen Vegan was super tasty. Next time I'd spring for extra noodles and shiitake. They offer a discount for takeaway if you bring the container!

Pros: Several options , Ramen in Iceland!

Cons: Limited seating

Pretty good ramen but tummy issues

There are two vegan options available. The standard version is, well, standard. The spicy one however is AMAZING! We had one of each but sadly, had both big tummy problems after. Might try again though cause we found it real tasty.

Cute little place with a few decent vegan options

I had the vegan ramen and seaweed salad. The food wasn't particularly special (the ramen could have been more savoury) but I was craving something soupy and the ramen did the trick. It's a convenient spot for a quick lunch but I wouldn't go out of the way just to eat here again.

Cons: Pricey

nice place

Really tiny place, but they serve nice food. I was really hungry so I had both the vegan gyoza and the vegan ramen (not spicy). Both were good, but not really amazing. I also had Korean grapefruit lemonade which was really nice, but not cheap so I probably should have stuck to free water instead

Ramen momo

This was the first time I have eaten ramen, and I was not disappointed. I got the vegan spicy ramen, and my boyfriend got the plain one. We went here twice during our stay and it became a firm favourite. Only downside is its a tiny place so you may find you will need to stand, but seats do free up really quickly.

I highly recommend it!!

Delicious ramen!

Both of us got ramen with miso sauce, vegan ramen noodles, tofu, and vegan kimchi. The vegetarian dumplings were also vegan and delicious! However the place is TINY, only seats 10 people max and it's quite cramped.

Pros: Awesome vegan ramen.

Cons: Teeny tiny shop. Don't go if you're claustrophobic

Delicious ramen

The food was so good, the vegetarian dumplings were also vegan and were delicious. The udon noodles with tofu was so tasty too. Took half of it home for later as it was a big serve. The staff were nice and a few seats along the bar.

Pros: Tasty, Good vegan options, Nice staff
