The reviews on TripAdvisor made me pick this place to go to after a long long day. A nice stroll from the Grand Hyatt (10 mins) along some of the busy streets in Roppongi. Ippudo is in a tiny street with lots of other restaurants, quite a charming little ally off the big roads. The name cannot be seen from... More

The informal seating and resulting friendliness make this Noodle Spot a winner. The setup inside is a square room with a large common table for fun and friendly dining. The Tonkatsu noodles cooked to the middle of the scale was fantastic, and the staff were friendly and efficient. English Menus available. It's tucked around the corner from Roppongi Dori as... More

I can't imagine a trip to Roppongi and not stopping into Ippudo. We live in the neighborhood, and eat here regularly - even after trying many other ramen places. It is clean, delicious, and the staff are so patient with our kids. (Not so common in Tokyo's tiny restaurants.) They offer their menu in Japanese and English - so its... More

I've been to the Ippudo in the East Village in New York, but I liked this one better. The restaurant dining room is charming - in the back, you sit around one large table with perhaps 14 seats. But with beautiful plants in the middle, you don't feel like you're intruding with your neighbors. Obviously the reason to come here... More

We were introduced to this chain by a friend who loves the restaurant. Its a great standby restaurant for ramen and is great for families and friends. All seating is counter, so not condusive for conversation in a large groups. The menu concentrates on the Hakata style of ramen and is very tasty and a good value.

Wandered into this establishment thanks to the Trip Advisor Tokyo app. The name isn't in English out front, so we used photos to determine which restaurant in the alley it was. The food was fantastic all around...the stir-fried bean sprouts and dumplings were exceptional, as was the house specialty - ramen. The price and quality of food are so out... More

Ippudo make tasty ramen at a very good price. We tried the house ramen at their Ginza outlet and it was very tasty. Would recommend for a quick, inexpensive lunch.

After about 6 months living in Japan we became big fans of tonkotsu ramen. Tonkotsu is ramen with a pork bone broth, which gives it a slightly milky and very rich consistency. Ippudo was the best tonkotsu ramen we found in Tokyo. Like most ramen restaurants in Japan it was affordable with a friendly staff. It's not far from Roppongi... More

No other words...simply the best ever tonkotsu ramen, hakata style, ask for "al dente" barikata ramen. And then order the small, delicious, light gyooza. They have more than one store in Tokyo The best... simply the best
