Amazing ramen

Absolutely loved the customisation system for ordering ramen. I love how you order from a vending machine and then can customise your own ramen. it was a fantastic experience.

I loved this place the ramen is sooo good and you customise it to exactaly how you want it (spicy, firm noodles, etc) the broth, noodles, pork were all excellent and I like the anti-social booths as its great for when you want lunch or dinner on your own or a quick meal and cannot be bothered to deal with...

You order from a vending machine, you take your tickets to a booth where you're separated from others. A person who you never see takes your tickets from the vending machine and gives you your ramen and then shuts a door for you to eat in isolation... It's pretty good though, I've not had much ramen but there's obviously better... More

Ordered the Ramen + Extra pork, +seaweed, +egg and +mushrooms using the vending machine. Sat down at my booth and chose my preference for my soup and noodle firmness. The noodle was cooked to perfection according to your preference. This is a place where many of the locals will eat. A good Value for the authentic experience and taste

It's not the best ramen in Tokyo, but it was a very unique experience. I speak a little Japanese, and it took a while to figure everything out. So for all those who would like to give it a try, here is the translation: 1. Vending Machine: There are English subtitles, so there is no problem here. The basic ramen... More

So I was really excited to taste the food here since they have one in HK. I expect much better taste, but no... I had the same experience as in Hong Kong. It's cheaper here in Shibuya but not worth my time. For a first timer, Ichiran is a good ramen. But for you who live in HK... Forget this... More

First time trying the ramen at this outlet. I tried the one at Shinjuku a few times. The standard is pretty consistent. The soup, noodle and service standard is as good as the one I had in Shinjuku. Most of the patrons finished the soup. Serving is a little smaller than most ramen restaurants. For big eaters, you may want... More

Ichiran ramen is raved about everywhere. All my friends think it's the best and I have heard no one else say so otherwise. It is a unique setting where you purchase the items you want at a machine; if you want more than one item (i.e. If you wanted to add seaweed or egg) then you need to do multiple... More

This was an awesome experience. Ichiran is open 24/7 and has some of the best Ramen soup in Tokyo. You walk in and choose the soup you want as well as all the ''fixens'' (egg, scallions, nori, mushrooms, beers etc) from a vending machine kind of thing where you also pay for your food. It spits out a ticket which... More

Awesome ramen noodles in a authentic Japanese environment. We had a great lunch and was lucky to not to have waited too long. Try to go early before 11:30 to miss the major rush. Easy to order with English everywhere.

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.
