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.

It’s such a wonderful experience to come to IKkousha at its original flagship shop, the small shop is so authentic and doesn’t have many tourists like Ichiran which is a good thing, because the taste is just more authentic here. Order from the vending machine...and one can sit anywhere you like. But I would recommend one to sit by the counter as you can see all the chefs in action, they are truly master of their own and they love what they do. Will be back for sure, this is a late posting from March 2019.More

The brightest-lit shop on the street! We were walking to Hakata Station from our Airbnb and the glaring illumination emanating from the shop caught our attention. Peering in, it looked busy, cheery and inviting. Always reassuring to notice many locals enjoying their ramen alongside tourists...too. It was full house when we arrived, so they asked us to wait outside in the drizzle :( Thankfully it was just for 10 minutes. Taking our five seats on the counter facing the busy kitchen was a treat - we enjoyed the ‘live’ action. We ordered ramen in three types of soup - classic pork, black (sesame) & red (spicy). The soup base here is distinguished by its intense pork bone flavour, thicker consistency and unique frothiness. We liked all three broths - each with their unique flavours though slightly over seasoned for our taste. Perfectly done eggs. ‘Liked that we could choose the consistency or ‘done-ness’ of the noodles. ‘Hard’ is not that hard actually and best in our opinion. Very good chashu; excellent balance of lean and fat. Overall; given its price point, quality, environment and service - we would recommend without hesitation.More

When I checked in to my hotel, I asked the Front Desk where to find the best ramen in Hakata. The receptionist pulled out a map with 8 ramen restaurants and pointed out Ikkousha as her favourite. I was there 10-minutes later. I met a...Japanese business man at the ticket machine and he recommended his favourite. We chatted while we waited a few minutes for our orders to arrive. The ramen was a thick, creamy pork bone ramen with firm noodles, thinly sliced chasu and perfectly cooked egg--heavenly. I returned a couple of days later and had the chef's special (I wish I could remember the exact phrase)--once again it was heaven in a bowl. If you order extra noodles, they are served separately and you add them when you are ready--stops them from overcooking in the hot broth. Wonderful staff and when I found out that they are opening a second shop near my hometown in Canada, I was ecstatic--there will be more Ikkousha ramen in my future!More

This place was recommended by the Japanese hotel manager and he was right. Really efficient, charming, helpful people in a tiny place - we didn't have to queue but it would be worth it. It seems that there is an enormous variety of qualities of...Tonkotsu Ramen available in Fukuoka but this was absolutely excellent. We sat at the bar and that was a good idea because you can see the process where they make the food and see the whole operation - great fun. You have to find out how to use the machine at the door but it's not so very difficult and the staff rush over to help you And not expensiveMore

Grabbed a t-shirt at the Hard Rock, and asked the guy ringing us up where he eats Ramen...he pointed us in the direction of this great little shop. We almost missed it since the signs aren't in English. It's a unique experience from entering, to...ordering, to eating. Don't miss it if you're nearby.More

Ramen noodle shops are a speciality in Fukuoka. This one serves delicious food in a typical noodle shop atmosphere. Do not be surprised if you have to queue on the pavement in order to get in to a noodle shop like this. Once inside you...order your meals and drinks using an electronic machine in the lobby. You pre-pay by inserting banknotes into the machine. Credit card payment is not possible. You then wait while (a) your food is prepared and (b) a table becomes free. Then you sit down and enjoy a truly delicious, hot noodle broth. In our case this included traditional sliced pork and a soft-boiled egg in addition to the noodles and further broth ingredients of various kinds. Once you are finished the rule is that you get up and leave, with no lingering, in order to let another group of waiting diners use your table. It is a twenty-minute bus ride from the Hilton Seahawk to this noodle shop, but even in the rain it is well worth it. Excellent.More

This ramen bar is simply fantastic. Helpful friendly staff, and the very best ramen I have eaten. It is meaty however (they use exclusively pork bones in their broth), so it may not be ideal if you’re veggie / vegan. But if you’re a meat...eater, go go go!More

如果要比拼豬骨湯拉麵, 我會大力支持一幸舍! 作為博多名店, 很喜歡他們叉燒是半生熟的, 濃烈的湯底慢慢令叉燒熟透, 這樣, 叉燒不會太硬! 湯底也非常濃郁, 清淡得來帶着豬骨的精髓, 我而不喝光了呢!! 值得一試的, 是他們的一口餃子, 手工制的餃子味道一流! 就算晚上九點之後才光臨, 依然人潮湧湧, 而大多數都是本地人來, 這家店好像還未被遊客發現呢! A famous, yet understated Pork Broth Ramen restaurant in Fukuoka, located centrally between the Canal City and the Hakata Station, this restaurant is packed with locals even after...9pm. Their pork broth is very tasty, not too thick but just enough to slowly heat up the Cha Siu (the meat), so that it will not be overcooked (it is under the raw side when it was served). The ramen itself, is just right, firm and thin, like the traditional Hakata style. Most surprising dish would be their dumplings. Flavorful, crunchy and seems like there's chicken soft bones inside. Loved it. On a cold winter night, a perfectly balanced bowl of ramen is definitely the best thing!More

One of the best ramen in Japan I would say. The price is quite acceptable,the soup is quite thick the way I like it ( some people might not like the smell though, since it’s Tonkotsu ramen the smell is strong ) They offer all...you can eat garlic, Takana and ginger, so you can actually customize the flavor of your ramen the way you like it. Also their dumplings are delicious too, don’t forget to try them if you are visiting here ! Everything was perfect ! Tasty !More
