“Fantastic Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

I can't imagine a trip to Roppongi and not stopping into Ippudo. We live in the neighborhood, and eat here regularly - even after trying many other ramen places. It is clean, delicious, and the staff are so patient with our kids. (Not so common in Tokyo's tiny restaurants.) They offer their menu in Japanese and English - so its a great choice for those who don't speak Japanese. I highly, highly, highly recommend this place. And don't leave without trying the gyoza.

“Great ramen, very affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

I've been to the Ippudo in the East Village in New York, but I liked this one better. The restaurant dining room is charming - in the back, you sit around one large table with perhaps 14 seats. But with beautiful plants in the middle, you don't feel like you're intruding with your neighbors.

Obviously the reason to come here is the ramen, and it's simply amazing. But even more thrilling is how affordable it is. The wait staff were all in a really good mood the night we were there, like all whistling while they worked.

One watch out is that it's cash only, but this is no problem.

“Good and consistent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

We were introduced to this chain by a friend who loves the restaurant. Its a great standby restaurant for ramen and is great for families and friends. All seating is counter, so not condusive for conversation in a large groups. The menu concentrates on the Hakata style of ramen and is very tasty and a good value.

“Amazing find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Wandered into this establishment thanks to the Trip Advisor Tokyo app. The name isn't in English out front, so we used photos to determine which restaurant in the alley it was. The food was fantastic all around...the stir-fried bean sprouts and dumplings were exceptional, as was the house specialty - ramen. The price and quality of food are so out of sync, it is amazing...so inexpensive. Loved it.

“Good ramen restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Ippudo make tasty ramen at a very good price. We tried the house ramen at their Ginza outlet and it was very tasty. Would recommend for a quick, inexpensive lunch.
