Great ramen!

Great noodle texture and light, flavorful soup. Order is made through a vending machine and order tickets presented to the staff when seated. You will be requested to tick off some ramen preferences on an order sheet while waiting to be seated. Location might be a little tricky to find. The queue... read more

A must try their noodle soup. We were 4 & we order 4 different soup. All of us was satisfied. It was worth to fall a long line when we visited the place. We're planning to go back to Tokyo this coming december. Longing to visit the place again.

We arrived at Ichiran on a busy Sunday at about 5pm and were seated within 10 minutes. To find it, walk along the main street on the right hand side and keep an eye out for the sign. Not long after you pass the '0101' shop you should see the sign and some narrow stairs leading down to Ichiran. Inside... More

Ramen quality is as all previous reviewers have described. Easy to find on the Main Street which runs down the right side of the Starbucks. There's a striped crosswalk just outside. Beware if you're a large/tall person, as the booths have fixed stools, and Asian legroom.

We ate at Ichiran during our trip to Japan. There was a long line but it went quickly. It was fun to use the ramen machine to place our order - no problems there. The food was tasty and we were quickly finished! 10/10 would eat at Ichiran again.

When we first arrived, there was a long line, but of mostly foreigners (I'd assume because of this place's tripadvisor fame). I thought the quality of the ramen was average, and they even mixed up my order with my friend's sitting next to me - I got a little spice but they gave me none and gave it to her... More

Even before you taste the delicious ramen they are used to prepare, the experience makes this place nice and particular. From the moment you go down the stairs to find the place (no english sign), to ordering through a vending machine (with pictures), then passing trought the reception. Finally when seated they hand out and english checklist on how you... More

Everything was excellent best noodles while I was in Japan! Great flavor, fast service and well priced value. Typical in Japan, the restaurant could accommodate privacy if eating alone as well.

This place is underground so you can't really see the shop front. We didn't notice this place until we see a queue and wondered what it was. This place is open 24 hours. The service is very very efficient and it's really not their fault really but sometimes you get a little offended. They only have one type of ramen... More

I love this place, there are other stores in different cities like Osaka as well. The noodles were great and were so good that I always got an extra helping of noodles. The place can get really busy at times and there is sometimes a wait but the wait is well worth it.

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
