I've been to the Ippudo in the East Village in New York, but I liked this one better. The restaurant dining room is charming - in the back, you sit around one large table with perhaps 14 seats. But with beautiful plants in the middle, you don't feel like you're intruding with your neighbors.

Obviously the reason to come here is the ramen, and it's simply amazing. But even more thrilling is how affordable it is. The wait staff were all in a really good mood the night we were there, like all whistling while they worked.

One watch out is that it's cash only, but this is no problem.

We were introduced to this chain by a friend who loves the restaurant. Its a great standby restaurant for ramen and is great for families and friends. All seating is counter, so not condusive for conversation in a large groups. The menu concentrates on the Hakata style of ramen and is very tasty and a good value.

Wandered into this establishment thanks to the Trip Advisor Tokyo app. The name isn't in English out front, so we used photos to determine which restaurant in the alley it was. The food was fantastic all around...the stir-fried bean sprouts and dumplings were exceptional, as was the house specialty - ramen. The price and quality of food are so out of sync, it is amazing...so inexpensive. Loved it.

After about 6 months living in Japan we became big fans of tonkotsu ramen. Tonkotsu is ramen with a pork bone broth, which gives it a slightly milky and very rich consistency. Ippudo was the best tonkotsu ramen we found in Tokyo. Like most ramen restaurants in Japan it was affordable with a friendly staff. It's not far from Roppongi Hills and the atmosphere is very comfortable.

No other words...simply the best ever tonkotsu ramen, hakata style, ask for "al dente" barikata ramen.
And then order the small, delicious, light gyooza.
They have more than one store in Tokyo
The best... simply the best
