Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a great ramen restaurant! A long wait, but it's worth it! Their fried rice is also great:) we went the restaurant before opening. But there was already a log queue!

The place is small but their service is fast. So don’t get scared with long lines. It does not take that long to experience and taste their food.

Overall: Very good ramen. The broth is very flavorful and bold The ramen was cooked just right. There was no after taste or thirsty feeling. Word of caution, don't come here if you are starving. The wait will kill your mood. I came on a...Monday. The restaurant opens at 11am. There are people in line by 10:30am. By the time the restaurant opened, there are about 40 people in line.More

I tried Shin'shin ramen while in Fukuoka. The taste is ok though a little bit milder compared with other ramen in the locality. Price is competitive with other ramen stores and their serving is good for sharing. One set back is, the place is small...and could not accommodate a lot of people who came in volume during peak hours like lunch time. On its wall you can see posted writings of customers who had visited the place. Since the queue is quite long in noon, come early so as not to wait for a sit.More

The service is efficient and the food is good. The ramen broth is tasty and pork is quite food. I would like to recommend that you come and try it.

Shinshin Ramen is indeed the best Ramen in Fukuoka! We discovered this place 2 years ago by accident and when I tasted it.. Its the best ever! Most of the time especially around 11:00 am there were long queues outside the place. The restaurant can...only accommodate around 20 - 25 pax... English menu is available and staff are very friendly and attentive. The best thing about the Shinshin Ramen is its thin noodles and amazing tonkatsu broth. Sides like gyoza dumplings and fried rice are also available.More

I had tonkotsu ramen for lunch at Shin Shin & it was the best meal I had in my three days in Fukuoka. Really excellent broth, delicious pork, noodles with just the right bite! Would love to eat here again one day.

A hallmark of a good restaurant is that people are willing to queue, even if the weather is cold. The same was here. Even though it is a chain restaurant, with several locations, the quality of the ramen was very good and the staff were...very courteous and helpful. Reasonably priced as wellMore

I found Shin Shin and ended up waiting in line outside for about 15 minutes. There is an impressive temple across the street, so gave me something to look at. Once I got inside I was seated right away, the restaurant is on the smaller...side. They had an English menu and a great lunch special. I had a bowl of ramen with pork and fried dumplings. I had a warm sake as well, perfect on a cold day. The dumplings are made to order, tasted great! The ramen was plentiful, I loved the thick broth and of course the pork slices. Overall, the ramen was perfect, I am obsessed with the ramen in Fukuoka!More

We arrived at around 1345H and found a queue of locals. We got quite intimidated at first but after a few seconds a waiter came out and hauled in about 8 people in one go... We queued up and being the 4th in line we...were in after only 5 minutes of waiting... It's a typical busy local restaurant with menus both in English and Japanese. Ordering was quite easy and our orders arrived after about 10 minutes. What can I say about the broth of the ramen? It's pork based but still very light in character without the cloying property of the rich ramen broth in Manila. The noodles are firm and the pork very tender. The gyoza is likewise very appetizing and an excellent accompaniment to the ramen as usual... Overall I enjoyed my meal in Shin Shin... Now I know why the locals queue up...More

It’s a wonderful restaurant with various choices and its open hour provides us chance to avoid long line in rush hour. We ordered ramen, assorted noodle, dumpling and fried rice. Everything is great with Fukuoka style but also well-accepted for foreigners stomach. It’s pity that...BBQ starts from 5pm.More

Chanced upon it and saw a queue outside. Decided to give it a try when there was no queue (at about 4pm). The noodle is good, meat is soft and the broth is fabulous. Went back for 2nd round at 12am and there was a...queue for it! Price was reasonable and service was fast!More

A definite worth while stop if you enjoy tonkotsu ramen. We stopped by after seeing good reviews on it, and it met the standard we were expecting. Rich, deep tonkotsu flavor from the broth accompanied by tender pork slices. It’s comparable to the popular ICHIRAN...ramen and at a much cheaper price. A bowl including the half boiled egg was about 700yen. Gyoza was a great touch on the side and the fried rice was delicious as well. Nothing lacking - just go!More

One of the best places for the Hakata-style tonkotsu ramen that I've had. Be fair warned though that it is very popular, so depending on the timing of your visit, you may need to wait a while (I went just after 11 - their opening...time - and it was already pretty busy). I can assure you it is well worth it though. The broth is not as heavy as other tonkotsu that I've had and the noodle is the thinner type (and as has become the norm, you can choose the hardness). I also had the fried rice, which wasn't amazing but still delicious. I went during lunch time and they have several lunch set options that are good value for money. The service is very prompt and friendly.More

I had a very nice dinner in Shin Shin restaurant. The restaurant is locatel outside the main road but it is so crowded! Many people of the place like this ramen. Personally, I found that the pork meat was really delicious! Maybe the best ever...eaten. The price is reasonable (600 Yen for normal ramen).More
