PRICE:
$$ Affordable. $10 is cheaper than ramen restaurants.

QUALITY:
OK. Not bad but not great. Lukewarm soup.
Noodles are chewy and not bad but not fresh like you’d find at ramen restaurants. The noodles are like instant noodles that come from a plastic bag. The ramen toppings were Ok. Garlic oil was good. Pork Chashu had weird texture. Portion size is small.
Soup served in cheap plastic takeout bowl.

SERVICE:
Good. Friendly. Served fast.

VERDICT:
For food court fast food ramen, Torimaru is an ok option if you’re really craving ramen. The toppings are fine, and the flavour is ok. You can find better and more expensive ramen elsewhere.
