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

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!

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

This is a cosy Japanese style restaurant in Leigh Street just a few minutes from Rundle Street Mall. Their ramen dishes are very good indeed and it's very good value for money. It's a great place to just get away from Rundle Street if you want a value meal and they are open all afternoon too. Service is very good... More

A little hole-in-the-wall noodle shop on Leigh St with a good selection of Ramen and other Japanese comfort foods. Service can be hit and miss, but pick the right dish and service doesn't matter so much! Portions are generous, but the traditional ladles don't make for dainty eating. My pick is the Tori With reasonably priced, tasty, if not totally... More
