Best I ever had . No regret even drinking all the soup. Look out for the mysterious quote once you are done with the entire soup. Tasty and slight spicy depending on your taste . Love it. Cubicle is blocked so you could focus in the ramen and not your friends :) interesting

Best ramen I have ever tasted in my life and this is my favourite ramen so far. Made with pork broth but still so light. And you will be given a list to tick of the choices you want for your ramen. It is mind blowing! The Char Siew Siu is very delicious too.

The ramen from this place was great - even though I had ramen at Ramen Stadium 12 hrs prior! We had the ramen and the kyoza dumplings. The crust on the dumplings!!!!!! Also, I love spicy food and it was interesting how, as soon as they take your order, they hand you a list of how you want them to... More

Forgot to review this place, went in Aug. Not sure why some people giving less than 3 rating. Yes you can get cheaper ramen but it's still pretty good in my opinion. What I love about it is that you can customise. How rich you want your soup, the texture of your noodles, how spicy and any extras you want... More

The ground floor served only Ichiran pan fried chinese dumplings at 790yen per serving of 8pcs and the second floor the raved ramen. We had the ramen first. It was our first time so quite interesting. They even had the ramen in instant noodles style at 290yen per packet limited to 10packs per pax while stocks last. The ramen tasted... More

In a town where tonkotsu ramen is everywhere, this place is very famous and well known throughout Japan. That being said, it does not live up to the hype. I echo the other reviewers here and say that although it has a very unique setting and it does taste good, you can probably find better ramen, especially tonkotsu ramen, and... More

After reading all the rave reviews, I was utterly disappointed. Maybe I'm not a ramen expert. Maybe I'm crazy about ramen. All that I can say is the ramen at Ichiran was mediocre at best. It's not even close to the ramen which I'd in a little local ramen restaurant in the underground street near Hakata station. There's a lot... More

I went to the Ichiran at Canal City as I had read about it in a couple guidebooks and saw a short video about it on TV. For a restaurant, it is a very unique concept. There are no tables. Seating is at a bar counter with partitions to the front and the side so that you are somewhat isolated... More

I had been a huge fan of Ichiran for many years. Made numerous trips to Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka and also longed for Ichiran Ramen. However, during my last stay at Fukkuoka. I was SOOOOOO disappointed. On my first day at Tenjin, I noticed a queue for Ichiran(It was a Sun) and decided to have it the next day. I... More

Usually, food is good or bad, but it rarely is amusing. At Ichiran, it is. The whole process - ordering in a machine, filling a "questionnare" where you have to choose (by ticking it off) how firm you want your ramen to be, how much garlic, chilli and spring onion you want etc, and sitting in tiny cubicles - is...
