Only small block ramen. 4 of them. Nothing extra, no bowls. And I was charged $20.00
We are sorry your box didn't meet expectations. Let me provide some clarification on our service. While we don't charge extra for shipping, it typically amounts to 50% of the subscription cost. We work with importers of quality products that are rarely found at your local supermarket. These products are not your $0.25 Top Ramen. You may occasionally be able to find some products we feature at a specialty store, however, retail prices can often be as high as $5 per product. We feel our subscriptions are very competitively priced considering the curation value, our pamphlet describing each product, and shipping at no extra cost. If you'd like, please email us and we would love to work something out with you.
I subscribed to this box for about 3 months and it was ok. The ramen noodles are good but they were brands and even varieties that you could find pretty easily at an Asian market, about 1/3 was something I had seen/eaten before so it wasn't exactly 'exotic.' I did like the write ups but they were pretty simple descriptions printed on a laser jet. I suppose it would be of greater value if you lived far from an Asian grocery store but if you live in a city with an Asian population you can find the majority of these products.
Exotic Noods really have something special here. Their selection of noodles are all top notch. The first bowl I tried was the "Pho" by Mama and it tasted pretty much just like the restaurant pho! Spectacular stuff. I never could have expected you could get this kind of quality in instant noodles. Since the pho tasted so good it set the bar pretty high for the remaining noodles. I didn't think the other noodles in the box bring back that initial amazement but boy am I happy to be wrong! Almost every noodle was top notch. I blew through my box on 6 noodles in 2 days. I may have overloaded my body with sodium but it was totally worth it. This is nothing less but the finest selection of instant noodles on the market. I will definitely renew my subscription.
If you're a huge ramen or noodle fan then this crate is perfect for you. I really loved the huge range of selection that each package provided.
The 3 month delivery came on time for me and there wasn't any hassle with the purchase. Not that I needed it to come on time because each package that I received gave me so many different ramen that I didn't have enough time to finish it all till the next one came.
It helped me with my noodle addiction especially when there is some products that aren't available in my city.
I first stumble upon this subscription through Reddit. I decided to sign up because I love instant ramen and it seems pretty cool. I purchase the 3 month subscription for the Green packages. This is the first time I ever purchase a lootcrate sort of thing and I was super excited! One of my personal biggest worries was that they will send me noodles that I already tried since I live next to a Chinese/Vietnamese Asian market and grew up Chinese. When my first box arrived I was not disappointed! All the noodles in there were something I have never seen before. Inside the package came with a menu with a description of the noodles which to me personally, I enjoy. Just a couple nights ago I decided to cook one of the package noodles which was a Myojo Chukazanmai Miso Ramen. 10 out of 10 will recommend! I added some raw New York strip steak, bok choy, boil eggs, scallions and a dash of sesame seeds and it was delicious! I dream about it every night, haha. I highly recommend exotic noods if you're a noodle fan like me!
Signed up because a friend told me about this product and I love noods (of all kinds). It's an excellent variety of packages and flavors. I didn't even know a lot of these existed!
There was one bowl in there that reminded me of a bowl that my family used to buy in my childhood. They've since changed their bowls (damn you, microwaveable market), and it hasn't been the same. The bowl included was as good, if not better than what I remember!
Definitely enjoyed the product and I can't wait for the next set.
Loved the box! I liked the description of each different kind of noodle!
EDIT: Oh my gosh, the customer service is absolutely amazing! They sent me a spicy box by mistake so I emailed them, they replied within a week and sent me my original order for free!!!!!!!!! The noodles are fabulous! Will definitely reconsider getting another box!!!!! ORIGINAL: Super disappointed in these noodles! I ordered no spicy and all I got in my box were spicy noodles! One was so spicy I had to dump half a bottle of yum yum sauce into it but it was still super spicy!
Will not ever be ordering from them again.
Spicy spicy spicy!
We're so sorry that this happened. We've went ahead and contacted you and sent a replacement "no spicy" box for our slip up.
I've had this subscription for a little while now and I'm always impressed by the variety and quality. I love the included pamphlet too. Sometimes these products include little to no English, so the pamphlet does a great job of letting me know what I'm getting. Looking forward to next month's box!
Great gift for someone who loves ramen and likes the idea of adding ingredients!
Great noods! All delicious and easy to make. I wish there was a way to customize flavors because I’m allergic to shellfish and couldn’t eat one of the choices. Otherwise it’s an amazing service.
Ordered the reoccuring service of Exotic Noods and I was hooked. I live in an area where getting exotic ramen is hard. So this is just perfect. I'm ramen obsessed so trying each one is great. I share with my brother if the taste profile isn't great for me but most hit the spot.
We love opening the box and seeing what our selection is for that month. We get legit ramen with the fun explanations hand made and written by the company. Overall, recommend people try it out. It's a pretty delicious (and funny) service.
These noods were dope. I'm pretty busy during the week so I don't have much time to go out and shop, much less go and find noodles from around the world. The package I got came with noodles coming from Korea, Singapore and a whole list of other places I've never been. Along with the noods came a pamphlet describing all of the product they were shipping out this month.
However, I did have a weird experience when I told my friend about them. After telling her I got the strangest look, so I said "Hold on, let me go grab the box of noods I just got." When I came back with a large box I could tell there was something wrong with her, she looked like she was ready to call the police. Finally I open the box in front of her and I have never seen someone so happy to see noods. I'm pretty sure she thought I had a box full of top ramen lol. Anyways I shared some of my noods with her and she agrees that exotic noods are pretty dope.
I'm a ramen/pho/udon kinda girl but where I live has a dastardly poor selection of the good stuff. Thank goodness for this box! I love trying new flavors and they send you a cool insert explaining all the stuff you get each month! It's a ton of fun and well worth the price!
Gift recipient was very happy with the noddles.
I received my first box and absolutely loved it. For now I'm just doing the red subscription. It's fun if you're really into noodles and want to try some new stuff.
was looking for fun christmas gifts for my friend and stumbled upon this box. looks great and customer service was very nice in helping to get my product to me before christmas came around. thank you!!!
Really amazed that out of the unrefrigerated package comes glorious noodles and sauce. Noodles are the perfect texture and sauce is delish!
I'm not much for Asian noodles but I honestly enjoyed everything that was sent to me. I was given a free trial, and enjoyed it so much, that I let my subscription renew.
I was tired of the store bought options for my instant noodle cravings (can't seem to toss that addictive college habit) and was happy to stumble upon this from a friend who has been subscribed for a while. My package arrived in a timely manner and setting up my subscription was very easy. The noodles were great. It was better than my expectations. There is always a noodle that stood out to me in each package. This month I got a guava rice noodle and honestly, I was quite hesitant to try it. It's such a weird name, but damn, it's now my favorite nood. It is well worth the price. I can't find most if not any of these in stores and they are much better quality in taste than finding one in a store like Top Ramen. I'll be keeping my noods addiction strong and would definitely recommend this to everyone.
I work a lot so I always pack my lunch. I ordered some noodles and brought them to work. Needless to say everyone loves them! No more bad ramen, time to get the good stuff for cheap!!! I love the different flavors offered! Definitely will order!
Pretty decent box. Definitely some stuff in there that I've never seen before, and I'm a big ramen lover.
Big hit with my youngest son, but the "non-spicy" noodles are still quite spicy.
Loved the variety. My favorite flavor was Mama Green curry. The taste was very close to the green curry I get in a thai resturant, so a big thumbs up to that ! Also they share stories behind history of every flavor featured for that month, which I found pretty neat.
I’ve been wanting for this crate for many months and I finally did it a few weeks ago. I got even more excited when it said it ships on the 15th and takes 1-3 business days to get to you. So a few days later when the 15th popped up, the excitement again, intensified (can’t tell you how much I’ve wanted to do this). Then Thursday the 16th went by, the 17th, 18th ..... 19th comes and I get an email that a shipping label has been printed. A bit disappointed I figured it’ll ship that night, maybe I’ll get lucky and get it Tuesday the 21st .... it didn’t even ship until a little bit ago and it’s 12:30am Tuesday the 21st .... 6 days after the “shipping policy” says. Might sound like I’m being petty but I expect to get what I paid for, especially when I have the word “premium” in my order. I expect fantastic Ramen which unfortunately I have to wait until Friday the 24th according to UPS to try it. And I also expect for a company to abide by the policies it provides to the public, it’s the standard we’re supposed to expect from them or else they wouldn’t post them. There’s plenty of Ramen subs to choose from who will adhere to their policies. I guess we’ll see if this somehow gets rectified or not before I post anything on social media to warn my friends about my experience.
