You can't complain about the prices here, specially compared with other restaurants in the area. One small nibble of tapas in two other places I eat were more than my ramen! The service was efficient and the ramen arrived quickly, hot and yummy. I would not put the ramen in the class of the Shinjuku places I have experienced but... More

Dropped in recently on a Monday night, it was quite empty. Thought the service was good, gave us time to choose and the food hit our table quickly. Enjoyed it. Prices reasonable and a wide variety.

First time I have been here and I can tell you it will be the last. The food was perfectly adequate, quite cheap and tasty. Major problem was the service, I had finished my meal and a was waiting for my friend to finish his meal and drink when the waitress made us move table to fit a party of... More

The place is always full but you can always find a place in the corner . This isn't a fancy place but the food they serve is sensational . Don't miss to try the ebi fry and the Japanese gyoza and chargrilled beef ramen is a must .. If your looking for a casual delicious Japanese lunch/dinner then this is... More

***the photo listed with the name of the restaurant is not from the Leigh street store*** I love Ajisen! This has been a favourite of mine for years now. This month we are hosting a Japanese exchange student. On her first friday night with us she was a little homesick so we took her to Ajisen. She was really impressed... More

Skip the fast food restaurant and get yourself a better meal by going here. There are lots of options to suit any taste. The prices are good, the food is good and the food was prepared fast. Constructive criticism would be that the staff need to be more on top of taking table orders.

I just felt like some ramen tonight. I ordered the Yasai noodles, which comes packed with pork, veges and a boiled egg. It was tasty, it was hot, it was cheap ($10) and the service was very fast. Perfect. The only downside was the somewhat grubby interior. Maybe they do it on purpose, for street cred?

I have been craving Ajisen Ramen for ages so when I found out there’s in Regent Arcade in Rundell Mall, I made it my first meal after checking into the hotel. The restaurant is pretty small and casual but thankfully I managed to get a seat (I was there on a weekend at around 1.30pm). I ordered the Dumpling Ramen... More

What more can I say about this one? Order one of the Raman dishes- you've got plenty to choose. From what the other diners have told me, the meals are authentic but just less spicy than you would get in Japan. Easily fixed with all the condiments you get on the table! Yum.

The restaurant seriously needs a freshen up, as does the food. I reckon they are using thin spaghetti as the noodle instead of a proper noodle. The broth was okay but needed to be hotter. It just felt like the care factor was low.
