Good, cheap and fast.

Skip the fast food restaurant and get yourself a better meal by going here. There are lots of options to suit any taste. The prices are good, the food is good and the food was prepared fast. Constructive criticism would be that the staff need to be more on top of taking table orders.

***the photo listed with the name of the restaurant is not from the Leigh street store*** I love Ajisen! This has been a favourite of mine for years now. This month we are hosting a Japanese exchange student. On her first friday night with us she was a little homesick so we took her to Ajisen. She was really impressed... More

I just felt like some ramen tonight. I ordered the Yasai noodles, which comes packed with pork, veges and a boiled egg. It was tasty, it was hot, it was cheap ($10) and the service was very fast. Perfect. The only downside was the somewhat grubby interior. Maybe they do it on purpose, for street cred?

I have been craving Ajisen Ramen for ages so when I found out there’s in Regent Arcade in Rundell Mall, I made it my first meal after checking into the hotel. The restaurant is pretty small and casual but thankfully I managed to get a seat (I was there on a weekend at around 1.30pm). I ordered the Dumpling Ramen... More

What more can I say about this one? Order one of the Raman dishes- you've got plenty to choose. From what the other diners have told me, the meals are authentic but just less spicy than you would get in Japan. Easily fixed with all the condiments you get on the table! Yum.

The restaurant seriously needs a freshen up, as does the food. I reckon they are using thin spaghetti as the noodle instead of a proper noodle. The broth was okay but needed to be hotter. It just felt like the care factor was low.

It was a mistake to dine in this restaurant. It was half full when I came in, waited for 10 minutes for my order to be taken. The waitress obviously not paying attention and I have to get up and waive at her. Another 25 minutes wait for a bowl of ordinary, luke warm, full of msg, over cooked egg,... More

We took our homestay students for the usual Friday night meal out and loved it. Leigh street was and still is a great place for a meal any tiem of day. Lots of eateries ranging from breakfast waffles and cafes, places for after work drinks and a meal to fine dining and the newly arrived Movenpick icecreamery. My students are... More

Wanting a quick easy dinner I had the tonkatsu ramen, with a little added kimchi. The meal was absolutely delicious and the service was full of smiles. The place was packed with young Japanese (?) students and families, which makes me think it must be pretty traditional. I certainly enjoyed it
