slowwwww

decent menu range and prices (if you use the entertainment book voucher) but the food just takes so looooong to come! waited close to 40 minutes for my bento box at lunch time while my friends were about to finish their bowls of Ramen!

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

4 of us ate here, including one vegetarian and we were all pretty impressed. The food was very tasty and fresh. The prices are pretty good.

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

I am a regular at Ajisen ramen in Leigh street and although the setting is very casual, I am always impressed with my tofu ramen. Tofu is deep fried and crispy with exploding flavours and the soup is very tasty! I'm not a huge fan of spicy foods but the tofu ramen has an exciting kick. There was little service... More

after shopping my friend decided to give us a shout and she suggested to try this place. We walked all the way from Target Rundle and Pulteney Sts to give it a go. What we experienced was absolutely a horrible customer service. The lady who took our orders was not happy to have us maybe and was even throwing stares... More

I think anyone who says this place is actually good has never tried proper Japanese ramen, maybe? Firstly, the owners and workers as far as I can tell from the several times I have been there, are Chinese and I don't think their ramen recipes are very authentic. For a start it tastes barely anything like any ramen I've eaten... More

We are from Sydney and love Menya ramen on market street which is one of the best in Sydney. Ajisen didn't disappoint. I had the chasyu (pork) and my wife had the grilled salmon ramen. Both were delicious with pork based broth which was nice and salty. Both the pork and salmon were cooked well and my wife really like... More
