We couldn't really find the place because google maps wasn't great. but I didn't give up and finally found it. Because it's the basement. Look out for the red sign. It's easy to kiss because it is all in Japanese. Food is fantastic. And the staff helps out in English. U can open the dividers and share or have a... More

The mood here is very different than what you usually get on a lamem shop, defenitely worth your time. The soup itself has amazing character, I would say it was one of the best lamens I had if not the best.

We decided to try Ichiran after reading the reviews on ta and we weren't disappointed. You order from a vending machine when you enter and once seated give your tickets for your meal. You can choose the strength of broth, firmness of noodles and how spicy you want the soup. The waiters deliver your meal through a partion. This has... More

Upon arriving, you will see a vending machine from which you can order your food. After ordering, wait in line till the waiter passes you a form, in which you can choose your preference of the thickness of the broth, texture of your noodles, how much of garlic, green onions and their red pepper secret sauce you want etc. Hence,...

When you go to Japan, the first thing you look for is ramen. Being somewhat of an aficionado, I'm kind of picky of chains. Let me get straight to the point. If you want good ramen, then this is it! This to ramen is like In and Out to burgers. Enough said!

I love ramen and was intrigued by the reviews for Ichiran Shibuya. It was pretty easy to find with a map, I used the directions function on Tripadvisor, being that it is only a couple of minutes from the Shibuya crossing and the red sign outside was easy to spot. Ordering from the vending machine was fun and the "how... More

One of those meals that will make you know you are in Japan! Order by vending machine, get seated in a cubicle and then have your meal delivered through a trap door! Delicious broth that can't be good for you and good not amazing ramen noodles. Probably better quality around but it's cheap, central location, good quality and fun way... More

We went to Ichiran after reading the good reviews on Trip Advisor.. We waited in line for around 20 minutes which more than acceptable. The line does move very quick. Very satisfied, would recommend and will probably go back before we leave!

The place was a bit hard to find since their sign is on Japanese, make sure you have the address in Japanese. We went there for lunch and had to wait in line for a while (15-20 min), but it was definitely worth the wait. The noodles are really tasty, cooked to perfection according to your preference. You can choose... More

It was my first time to try Ramen at Ichiran even though it was introduced via a guide book :) Seems all the time people are waiting in line! I ordered extra Chashu and it was pretty yummy! As the restaurant is decorated like a library, it is good for the person who goes get some food alone I think.... More
