Ichiran, in all locations, continues to serve the BEST ramen we have ever had! While it may seem touristy, and the lines may seem long, it is totally worth the wait!

Awesome and unusual place for ramen! First of all, when you go looking for it, you should know that it's across the street from the Starbucks, in a building with a walkup staircase and elevators. It's on the second floor. If you're here late, look for the red signs on the building (see pics of outside of restaurant others have... More

Went there for lunch, no queue at all, fast and easy way of ordering through a vending machine. Fast service with lots of options on how the dish will be prepared. We tried a few combinations and all were perfect. Truly the king of Ramen in Tokyo!

A must and there's a reason why everyone recommends it . Simple formula with ticket system to purchase . Once in you are served in small booths and you don't really see the person serving you which is a bit wierd You the get to choose strength of broth, sauce and firmness of noodles . Result is excellent and a... More

We had one night in Tokyo and we knew we wanted ramen and something close to our hotel. We went here, figured out how to use the vending machine and had a great dish. Recommend to anyone looking for a great place for ramen the first time.

Friends have always recommended this place for Ramen. I would say it really lives up to the expectation as the ramen served was decent. Keep the soup and request them to add extra ramen for you (it's free!). The only downside of this place is the enviroment, as it's cubicle like. One cubicle only fits a person. It's rather depressing.... More

We have heard of Ichiran, but came accross this branch by accident on the way to Roppongi Hills. The manager almost had a fit when he saw us, a group of 7 tourists including 3 children. Fortunately, there was an enclosed section that we could use, so that we did not disturb the other guests. The ramen was amazing, and... More

There's something strange about eating in booths - 30 to be exact. You need to choose your meal in a vending machine and you literally have to wait for a strange traffic light device which will show you which 'booths' are available. You sit yourself down in the booths and they will serve you the tastiest ramen ever! You can... More

I've always heard about the rave reviews whenever my friends returns from a trip in Japan and I've finally got a chance to join the long waiting queue to try it out in June 2015. You know you're in for something good when there's a long queue so I was already half convinced while waiting in the line. It'll take... More

By far the best ramen in Japan! The queuing can be very long but it`s really worth the time. Tonkutso ramen with egg is my favorite ramen. You have to buy your orders in the vending machine and the staff will give you a paper to choose your own flavor. This is were we end up every night after our... More
