Sanchyan Ramen Restaurant: A lovely little Japanese restaurant

Tucked away in Patan, approximately a three-minute walk from the durbar square, Sanchyan Ramen Restaurant is a small and cozy place serving Japanese cuisine. Sanjay Maharjan opened the restaurant in 2018 after having lived and worked in Japan for a decade. 

The restaurant has five different seating areas with a counter at the left end, with an open kitchen behind that. The counter is lined with stools and you can sit there too if you want to enjoy the view of the place as you eat. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Although small, the place has a really comforting vibe. There is a small paper mache lamp with Japanese writings on it that casts a warm glow.

The food matches the wonderful ambience. One of their bestsellers is Sanchyan ramen. It comes with three pieces of pork and a boiled egg. The soup has a distinct flavor and the noodles are thin and perfectly cooked. It’s a really good bowl of ramen and we highly recommend it.

Besides ramen, they also have a good variety of sushi. We would like to suggest you try California rolls which has avocados with veggies as the filling. You might not like avocados, but trust us when we say you might like this roll. The texture is just right. You won’t even taste the avocados but somehow it makes the filling an absolute delight.

For drinks, there are some pretty neat Japanese alcohol options. If you would rather have a non-alcoholic beverage, try their homemade plum soda or the homemade ginger ale. Both are refreshing and taste great.

The plum soda, however, is only available during summer, which is the season for plums. But the ginger ale is available all year round. What’s so good about these drinks is that they are healthy, and not something that’s found everywhere. There are also soft drinks and cocktails on the menu if you’d like to stick to your regular drinks. 

After Dashain, you won’t have to go all the way to Patan to try their delicious food. They are all set to open a branch at Durbar Marg, Kathmandu.
