Critic Reviews for Ramen Shop (Ramen teh)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

It is saved by its underlying theme of forgiveness and reconciliation between long-estranged family members, for whom the cruel memory of the Japanese invasion and occupation of Singapore during World War 2 is still alive.

A surprising and endearing allegory about memory, forgiveness and talent served in the form of a gastronomic comedy. Ramen Teh does for the noodles more than what Whiplash did for the drumsticks. [Full Review in Spanish]

The movie feels afraid to go all in, to embrace the sensuality of its subject matter.

Saito's presence is as essential to the film as pork ribs are to bak kut teh - it simply would not have stood without his soul-stirring performance.

Khoo's gentle drama may be too slight and sentimental for some tastes but it is handled with a sincerity that could commend it to incurable romantics and insatiable foodies alike.
