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...

There is usually a line here but it moves rather quickly. You order thru a vending machine where it spits out a ticket. You provide the ticket once you sit down and they serve you thru a slot on your table. You don't even see who is serving you haha. It's quick and no fuss! If you want to go... More

I've tried several ramen places around Tokyo but I keep coming back to Ichiran. Their ramen is absolutely divine. Queues may be long during peak hours but your patience will be rewarded with your first bite. There are several outlets in Tokyo, some open 24 hours so you can always grab a late night supper or an early breakfast too!

Ichiran ramen has been on my mind since I last ate at the Osaka branch almost a year ago and Ichiran Shibuya didn't disappoint. I like my ramen pretty saucy and slightly spicy so I really appreciate the fact that you can "customize" your ramen. You will receive a paper on which you'll indicate how much noodle, garlic, oil, and... More

This was the first place I went to for real Japanese ramen and it didn't disappoint. It being a chain doesn't make the food any less tasty. The line was a bit long when I went but it was worth it for sure. They give you options to add more stuff to your ramen if you want, and each seat... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

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.
