This is the original store, tucked away in a small corner, but with great food and warm service, its easy to see why Ippudo is an international chain. The noodles are great here as they are anywhere, but having tried them in different countries, its somehow the best in Japan, and where else in Japan but the original store.

Thank Darthduh

Good foood and good service for a reasonable price. No wonder this franchise has gained international recognition. And it all started here... in Fukuoka. Exellent ramen.

I came here 3 years ago and the taste didn't change. They became more popular with foreigners since then and have an english menu with pictures as well. delicious but the beer is a bit overpriced. order the akamaru (red sauce) with the gyoza. Really delicious.

Original Ippudo, you'll need to try it here at least once. There's plenty of reviews on how good/average the place is (fair enough). Everyone's taste is different so cannot say this place is the best etc. I think the more important thing is to experience the Original Ippudo. The atmosphere of this place is quite unique, it's busy but not... More

I love Ippudo's Akamaru (red bowl) ramen. Nothing else comes close for me. It is a complex palate, with many layers of flavour. Ippudo has a great atmosphere, too with the free iced rooibos tea, Japanese pickles and so very cool jazz music it all makes for a great experience. Highly recommended for ramen lovers, Hanzo

This simple fast-food style café/restaurant is simple yet authentic. Ramen was fresh, tasty & good-sized portion. Enjoyed a quick ramen for a quick stop-over.

We choose this branch of Ippudo (Ippudo Daimyo) as it seemed much cleaner (and newer) than other ramen shops. It also had a few tables to sit at ... not just a counter. Being a beginner when it comes to eating ramen, I found the staff were very friendly and they explained everything very well. They offered many suggestions for... More

This Ippudo in Fukuoka is probably one of the best in the world...of Ippudo ramen restaurants. I get the feeling that many people have tried it in other countries, find the taste familiar and equate that with superior tonkotsu ramen. I find it far from the best. To be honest, it's kind of average here. It's sold, it's good, it's... More
