“Disappointed - Broth is Fatty - Ajisen , Glen Waverly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

If you haven't been to Osaka before, then the ramen here will be ok for you albiet a bit on the fatty side. I think the portions are small and the food is not made with much love or care. Not on the cheap side either. I would suggest other ramen shops.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I always go for the Karaage Ramen and it always hits the spot. Nice easy going atmosphere. More of a cafe' style.

“Tasty japanese in Box Hill!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I enjoyed the food here. Very tasty beef and the sauce was especially yummy.
The meat portions could have been bigger and less vegetables (I had the beef teriyaki).

Friendly service and fine atmosphere - all in all one of my best food experiences in Box Hill area. Recommended for dinner!

“Birthday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I joined up for the membership card entitling me to $10 during my birthday month. There was no issues using the discount and the serving was adequate. Food was tasty and came out reasonably quickly. We will be returning.

“Fantastic Ramen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I love Ajisen Ramen! Fantastic ramen and great value. The servings are large and delicious. I have been here a couple of times now and have only had the Yasai Ramen because it is too good to go past. The service has always been good when I have eaten here. They also do takeaway.
