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.

This was the first place we went to for dinner after landing in Tokyo. One of our favorite chain for ramen in Tokyo at a reasonable price and an unique dining experience. A bowl of ramen costs about 800-1000 yen. You order through a vendor machine and you can customize your bowl from noodle texture to soup flavors ane even... More

Found Ichiran very easily thanks to other reviews. Great experience ordering and being seated at your individual booth. Ramen was top notch. Full of flavour and an authentic Japanese food experience... May go back whilst I'm here. Definitely recommend.

I thought the tonkotsu ramen would be just same with another ramen but Mother of God, the Tonkotsu – “Ichiran Ramen” is THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD [omg my tummy... More

We had a layover in Tokyo and chanced upon this chain ramen outlet whilst shopping around in Shibuya. As we didn't have much time for a meal at a izakaya or sushi joint we came here. It was a good experience. You order from a vending machine outside the dining area. You can customize the ramen however you like it... More

The ramen here was phenomenal and the ability to customize my bowl made it even better. Not my favorite noodles in Tokyo (a little too thin for my taste), but all around good experience.
