Long lines, but good food at the end. On table top up of noodles was a great idea to help the kids figure out hos much they wanted to eat, so families with small kids should consider this!

Eating in Japan can sometimes be quite a stressful experience if you're not fluent in the language. Whilst almost everyone is incredibly patient and understanding, sometimes you just want to experience the cuisine without having to stress too much over reading the menu. This place is perfect for that. You start your order from a vending machine which has English... More

Excellent ramen in this basement restaurant. It was slightly disconcerting to me to eat in a personal booth, though. Certainly not the most comfy place to eat and you won't even be able to see the face of the person serving you. You can customise your noodles and the price is very reasonable. May not be suitable or very comfortable... More

Nothing like those ramen you had from other places. The experience is totally different from other ordinary ramen you gonna have. The place is really small as it only serve like 18 ppl, so be prepared to wait for around 20 minutes during night time. The whole process is rather easy to understand for foreigners. Just follow the steps and... More

The ramen itself is good, highly customizable, and prompt to arrive, read the other reviews for more detailed descriptions. Do NOT add extra garlic unless you're an absolute garlic freak. When you choose the details of your meal you can specify up to 1 whole garlic clove included in the base price, so I don't think it's necessary to add... More

Enjoyed the meal both for the ramen itself and eating "solo" in a booth to truly savour the flavours. Each seat is isolated from the next seat by a partition and there's just a small window for the food to come out, so the cooks don't disturb you when you are eating! That aside, the ramen is top notch, though... More

Visited the Ichiran ramen. Ranked no.1 and no doubt it was very very good. The soup base was very tasty, not salty. You can choose the noodle style, how hard or soft you want, spiciness of the soup, amount of green onions you want, and when you finish, you can order a refill of noodles at a small price. The...

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
