It is a very short distance from the Hilton Tokyo although this place is a little hard to find in the i land building (go down the escalators at the street corner). This is a quick dining place but great value for a flavoursome Ramen

I was searching for Ramen close to my hotel (Hilton Tokyo - Shinjuku) and discovered Ippudo. This ramen location had the highest reviews in the general area and it didn't disappoint. The location is a bit challenging to find as it is located in the i-Land Administrative Tower. There are probably 20+ restaurants in this area. Ippudo is a traditional small location and if you hit it at a peak period you will find a line and wait to get in. I had ramen twice during my stay. I had both Spicy and the Modern Tonkatsu. Both were fantastic!!!

Nice and small restaurant in Shinjuku, near the Government building and the Hilton in the I-Land Tower. Not the easiest place to find as it's downstairs but the food was tasty (and a lot of it) and was pretty cheap.

There were nine of us and Ippudo were very accommodating. Easy to order, great food. Three ramen types - the spicy was a bit smaller than the other and delicious. The dumplings were a hit with the kids! (And adults)

It was my daughter's birthday while we were in Tokyo and her wish was to have a true traditional Japanese Ramen dinner. She found a spot with great reviews and off we went, just a short walk from our hotel; the Tokyo Hilton.

I'll admit I was a little skeptical as I had had home made traditional ramen before and well it was no more than ok, however this was very, very good!

The restaurant is what I would call a little 'hole in the wall' type place in the lower level of the Shinjuku Island Tower and any given day I would have walked on by, this one was not a walk by though. We got a little table for two in a tight little corner and sorted out the menu selections, thank goodness Tokyo is big on not only photo menus but also english ones on request! We picked the best we could and waited in anticipation.
In one word, this was delicious! Flavourful, close to filling and, well, just yummy. I am a convert! Excellent job guys, this is a must visit traditional restaurant! Oh, and not over priced either!
