I really enjoyed dining at this restaurant. I suggest to try medium/regular taste for your first time and if you like it, try it with your preferred taste again. You'll never be disappointed.

We go to Ichiran almost weekly and it never disappoints. The Shinjuku branch is our favourite and provides a very unique dining experience and delicious ramen! It is also very cheap at about $8 AUD for the standard ramen dish. It is very simple restaurant to go to even if you don’t know Japanese. You simply put your money in... More

A real experience. Pay for your ramen soup at a machine then fill out a form to add or subtract things then sit in a tiny one person booth with a little curtain and a water tap. Lots of noise and atmosphere and delicious soup. Be brave and give it a try!

The internet hype made this high on the list. But most Japanese like Tenkaippin Ramen chain better than this.

We have had dinner at Club A several times now. There are so many dining options in japan but we always find ourselves back here because of the consistency in service, food, and hospitality! They always cater to my special order requests. Great wine list and never rushed. Truly an excellent experience.

We almost tried all the ramen chains in Japan but we always come back to Ichiran. This is so far one of our favorite ramen shops. We love the tonkatsu broth and also how you can customize the ramen depending on how you want it prepared. There's always a line here even at 10pm. If you're hungry I would recommend... More

Paid for my meal at a vending machine at the entrance of the restaurant and collected my meal ticket. Had to chose the kind of soup and make certain meal preferences, when making my selection at the vending machine. I then proceeded to the dining area. Each of the seat and table was separated with a partition. The curtain would... More

This was my first "pay at a vending machine then eat" experience in Japan. So fun. The staff there is so helpful for a tourist like myself too. The ramen is one of the best I've had. I love the personal cubicle you get to eat and the incognito way they serve you thru the little "curtain".... just a fun... More

After reading about this place, made it a point to find Shinjuku east exit. Go across the road past by Adidas corner shop, you should be able to find the shop to your right. We chanced upon it by asking a security guard! Upon going down the stairs, you will find the machine for you to pay to get the... More
