Great service and atmosphere - love how you sit around and watch the cooks. But the quality of their food has gone done over the last couple of years. It lacks flavour - there are definitely better asian restaurants in Ponsonby for similar price but better food.
love the ramen broth and the crispy pork crackling of their pork belly bun. Their fried chicken is great too. Came here for dinner on a cold winter's night and was seated just below the warm fuzzy heater, which was great. It is awesome that you can your food been prepared.
Wow where to start? Cold service ... worst 'ramen' ever ... ridiculously loud bad 80s music. Was so excited to try another ramen place, like many of us I've eaten oceans of the stuff and love it so this bad experience put me on a genuine downer.
Honestly there was not one positive, even trying to pay was a laughing point.
Btw the dish I had was the beef brisket ramen - poor broth and weird noodles, flavour and textures just all wrong. Go to ramen do to see what ramen should be like.
Chop chop was very disappointing: the food was horrid; the music was way too loud and the service was bib existent. It was a trial from the beginning right through to trying to work out where to pay at the end. After all the hype online, we expected so much more.
Good spot for noodles in Ponsonby Central, however, not the best ramen that I've had. The atmosphere is pretty cool but my dish was a bit bland - I had the pork noodle bowl. Great concept, but not 100% there in regards to taste as far are the ramen are concerned. Really friendly staff though.
