There are two reasons to write reviews - an absolutely horrible experience and an absolutely awesome one, this was the latter. After 3 months in Japan I thought I KNOW ramen but these guys unlocked the God Tier. Wait patiently in line and then brace yourself for the best ramen experience in Osaka.

We dined in the Ippudo Ramen restaurant located in Umeda. There are lots of different branches of Ippudo Ramen restaurants globally, with one which is located in Hong Kong. The noodle ramen was quite nicely made, ingredients are fresh and nicely made by the chefs. The service was okay, waiters were quite friendly and even notified us that our black... More

Quite nice ramen. Taste-wise not as good as Ichiran, but the food looks nicer and the restaurant itself is not only about food but also a place to socialize. Depending on your preferences and company it might be the right place to go for your ramen quest!

Ippudo ramen is one of the famous ramen chain in Japan...I like this shop - as it's conveniently located (near to HEP Five, Umeda, Osaka) and the noodles are very yummy. I ordered the normal ramen, there are already some 'cha' 'shiu' pork slices, and the pork bone soup was not oily, not salty and very delicious. I liked their... More

We followed its location in TA but got a bit lost. Anyway, food was delicious and there's usually a line before you can get in. Definitely recommended.

In my personal opinion, the soup base is way greasier than those we find in South East Asia by their franchisee. BUT, it also taste better in the richness of the ingredients.

Must try Ippudo when visiting Japan! This restaurant is at the heart of Osaka city but a bit hard to find. Because of the way the tables are set, small groups are easily accommodated while bigger groups of 6+ could take a while longer if you wish to be seated together. That said, staff do try to sit your group... More

We were reluctant at first cuz of the long lines in front but so glad that we stayed. The service was quick and simple. Ramen tasted fantastic. The price was reasonable. The only thing is that since the place is so crowded, you could be sitting in front of a complete stranger with very little space in between. Other than... More
