One of the best place to enjoy ramen. Ichiran ramen has so many branches. This branch is quite busy and popular for tourists. Quite long queue here during lunch period. Private place to enjoy ramen.

You really dont care if you have to queue as they have excellent tonkatsu ramen and it is really a must try. Excellent taste with enough spices and flavour. We have to go back the second time to enjoy the delicious ramen

The dining experience is as Japanese as it can be: eating alone in a cubicle. The process was flawless and quick. You choose your ramen, the thickness of the broth, the spice level, the firmness of noodles, and the side dishes. You pay at the...More

The tasty tonkotsu ramen broth had compelled me to order an extra bowl of noodles for the first time. Undeniably one of if not the best bowl of ramen I have ever had in my life.
