Such a good ramen joint. Staff helped us with the vending machine choices. You get to choose how you want the ramen which is fun. The set up of the restaurant in individual booths is different. So tasty and cheap.

Almost a spiritual experience. The enclosed space, no human interaction, just you and your bowl of ramen, reminded me of a confessional. The dish is extremely good but more than the food is the feeling of being one with the dish. This unique experience taught me more of why Japan is Japan.

Tonkotsu ramen is the best! This is great ramen, and the noodles are awesome! Order them very hard and get an extra noodles for the true experience!

Even if you're not into ramen, this is one experience you shouldn't miss. You get to order and enjoy your ramen in the solace of your own little nook. No faces, no interruptions. Just you and your food. Order extra pork slices and save your soup for an extra order of noodles.

The noodles admittedly are fabulous and the selection is outstanding, but the truly unique experience is the place, the serving method. Sitting in your individual booth, with a bamboo curtain for privacy, it's a kind of ramen automat, and a great way to eat. Individual water dispenser and you can fold the divider panel to talk with your neighbour. And... More

Delicious soup, very rich in taste yet light and refreshing. Ramen noodle is cooked perfectly in texture and taste. Wonderful. For a first-timer the experience was pretty unique, guests were seated on booth for single person and waiter served you from small opening in front of the booths.

I've eaten at several Ichiran shops in Japan and this one remains the best. The noodles are always done just as I ask them to be, the soup is the perfect richness, and there's just the right amount of vinegar and spice. It's always a good idea to get the extra helping of noodles, too.

It has its own special recipe for ramen. It was my life time noodle!!! It's a little spicy so be careful not to order it spicy. You can customize your own taste so don't put too much special sauce!

It's easy to order via the vending machine which has English labels and you need to state your ramen preference thereafter on a separate sheet that has a English too! The booth seating is unique by itself and we had a blast eating our ramen there. The rectangular bowl is also very unique. Was expecting it to be crowded but... More

I read much about the positive review of Ichiran so when in Fukuoka I thought it would be good that I can try it out.. Ichiran is one of the most well-known ramen restaurants with branches across Japan and in Fukuoka alone there are at least 3 outlets. Employing a unique technique of soup making, they offer tonkotsu soup which... More
