Great find

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... read 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.

Every time I go to Japan, Ichiran is a must-visit. Whether it's for dinner or a late-night snack, it never fails to satisfy. You buy coupons from the vending machine and you can add extras, such as spring onions, extra sliced pork or salted egg. After you have your coupons, you line up (or choose to go at odd timings...

We visited on a Tuesday evening at 5.30pm and there was a long queue, but it moved surprisingly quickly. We ordered Ramen with extra pork, boiled egg and mushroom, which had an amazing aroma when it was served and was very tasty. The venue was tiny and eating there itself is an experience. You eat at a wooden counter separated... More

Visites this place with my boyfriend for dinner. Although the line was intimidating it moved surprisingly quickly. Service was available in English and very clear - staff helpful. You can get seated faster if you don't mind sitting separately, but if you want to remain together they will wait for a spot to open up. Food was absolutely delicious, and... More

The reviews are not wrong, superb ramen and worth the long wait if you go on weekends. Request for the extra pork and half boiled egg as well.

My bad trying to avoid slot pre-payment system in favour for a traditional after meal payment and waitress order instead of machine. Pictures and descriptions DO MISGUIDES! (When it comes to taste). Here, tried Ichiran Ramen - yummy. Hakata style noodle. I love the broth. The noodle. The egg. The sliced pork. I would have added 2nd bowl if not... More

I've been patronising Ichiran for the past decade - along other popular ramen eateries such as IPPUDO & the likes - Ichiran wins my heart, (or rather my stomach) hands down. Why? Simply because it is customisable to how I would like my ramen to be without compromising the taste of the broth. Obviously, if you were to spam the... More

Was pretty surprised how flavourful the broth is in Ichiran's ramen. Like many other things in Japan, you purchase a ticket from their machine and queue up to wait to be seated but don't worry - they're really efficient and you'll be seated without too much waiting as people generally eat and go (not the right place for you if...

Much has been said. But very honestly, the food is average only. I have eaten much better ramen in tokyo - and i actuclly have not eaten alot. But interesting experience. I will not go again for the food. Not horrible, but really really so-so. Really.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

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.
