“More comfort food than haute cuisine.” – Maggie Lee, Variety
“From start to finish, Ramen Teh is a joy, and while it caters to some bittersweet sentimentality, there is also a resounding hopefulness which lingers.” – Tynan Yanaga, Film Inquiry
“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.” – Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter
