This ramen made my day.

Me and my parents visited this place after a harsh day, hoping to get some good warm food. We were blown by the great taste of ramen and the interesting atmosphere. After the meal, all of us were talking about how we finaly know why people love ramen so much. A must go place indeed.

I think the ramen is ok but the experience is GREAT! You get a ticket and go to your assigned seat. Then the little window opens up and the server turns up to take your order. Interesting!

Wherever you go in Japan, you see long queue outside Ichiran. I have never tried Ichiran although I heard some good comments about it, never had a chance to try because of the long queue outside. Had a chance to try Ichiran at Tinjien when I visited Fukuoka last week, as the queue was relatively short. Just waited for 5... More

I got to choose my own toppings of the ramen as ordering. As I was seated, they also offer a brief survey form where I could choose the flavor, noodles and sauce. Apparently they are very particular about the ramen they serve. A bowl of ordinary ramen costs 790 yen. Additional topping ranges from 120 to 180. It was actually... More

This is the best ramen in Kyushu. You can control the soup base and ingredients to suit your taste buds. If you like it a bit sour, I suggest you add vinegar for 80 Yen.

Even though it was a chain the food was great. The kids loved using the machine to order. Good quality and great value. If you like hot, then you can crank up the heat and really enjoy a good sweat. :)

I went to the branch under Hakata station, you order by vending machine, I usually order just the ramen, but you can also order some extras, like extra pork, an egg, or an extra serving of noodles. Then you get an order sheet, which is available in English, and you can mark how you like your ramen. If you are... More

A mate really wanted to try and no matter what I say he drags me in. If you want real ramen this isn't it. Go to any number of ramen shops dotted around the city in the side streets and any one will probably be better than ichiran. It's just a big tourist trap. 1000 yen for one slice of... More
