Just had my second bowl of Ichiran Ramen in Japan since Osaka. The ramen and broth is quite good. However, it seems to lack the spiciness from 2 years ago. The egg is a disappointment as the egg was slightly overcooked. Still a fan though...More

We queued for about 30 mins at 9pm on a Saturday night. They served delicious ramen, prepared with attention to detail. I had salted egg as a side and almond custard for dessert which were delicious. To me, the ramen tastes really similar to Hakataya...More

We had to wait for about 20 mins to get into this ramen reastuarant. Definitely worth the wait! Best ramen experience ever. Delicious noodles and great way to eat in the booths. A must try.

The noodles are great and one of the best ramen I have tried. The ramen is made to order to your liking; al dente, soft etc. The system is good if you can figure it out. 1) Queue at the ordering kiosk- select your options...More

I love the ramen texture and the soup is perfect. Serving portion might be small for guy. It was served fast. If it’s your first time ordering, it might be a bit confusing since you need to use an automated machine.
