If you want an authentic Japanese ramen experience, this is the place to go. Unlike any ordinary ramen, its customised taste (soup, ingredients, etc.) will keep you going back for more.

This is the best ramen in the world. The soup is very thick, rich and flavourful. Choose the thickest soup. Add more chives, and topped up the meat if you can. The slices of pork melts totally in your mouth. I chose 8x spiciness and it's very spicy. If you don't like spiciness, go for original, you can taste the... More

A must visit if you're in Japan! I was walking along Shibuya and cannot find the restaurant, coz it was hidden downstairs. I went to a shopping place and asked for directions and the saleslady accompanied me all the way. (Thank you!) The restaurant was quite small-- just imagine how many foreigners and locals eat here everyday! :) For me,... More

This Ramen restaurant operates 24/7! The first thing we need to do was to order our ramen through a vending machine then we proceed to select our seats using the info board which displays where the available seats are in the restaurant. I like the ambiance of the restaurant, cosy and comfortable. The best part is we are allowed to... More

Some Ramen-Noodle- artisans push you to appreciate his art-Ramen- completely, so they want you to eat their Ramen quietly, absorbed in and concentrated in eating it. You can experience this kind of unique eating style here!

Look no further if you want great ramen with a unique dining experience thrown in. Even for a ramen novice you won't have any problems. Quick, easy and yum. Oh and don't be put off if there's a line outside, it moves fast and you won't wait too long.

Couldn't find a place that beat this ramen. You have to react quickly when you walk in, shoving money into the vending machine and choosing order. So good it will put you in a sleep coma.

First things first. Ichiran has opened another branch in Shibuya, a few hundred meters from this store. Since its newer, there is hardly any line, compared to this one at Jinnan Building. This local ramen chain has been named by critics and GQ magazine as one of the best in Tokyo. Well certainly it is one of the more unique... More

If you are a ramen fan (especially for Hakata pork style) this is a must whilst in Japan. Quite simply BEST RAMEN I HAVE EVER HAD. The dining experience is also quirky as you order your meal through a vending machine, then sit in a 'secret' booth where you don't see the faces of any staff who serve the noodles... More

Order food before you sit down, you will get a private booth in order to focus solely on your bowl of ramen. No socialising required, just order an extra egg, enjoy your ramen and back out to shopping. No hanging around, some poor soul will need your booth.
