I visited for lunch today with some friends. The restaurant has recently been refurbished and it looks great. We ordered from the set lunch menu which was good value and had a number of options. We were served quickly. The food was delivered promptly and tasted fresh. Will be back!

The chicken chilli ramen and yasai udon are tasty for this coming winter. I would love to have soup noodles while walking near city centre. The restaurant is very beautiful after refurbishing. Recommend for everyone. Also, they have launched a coffee and chocolate menu for siting in and taking away. I will come back again, Ichiban - number 1 :)

We tried three of the different noodles in soup and fried and they were really nice. The sushi wasn't the best I've tried but still good. Nice service but one of the waiters didn't speak a lot of English, I guess that's why it took him three times to bring the drinks correctly...

We went there for a late-ish dinner and were happy with the service and the quality of the food. The Ichiban Ramen were excellent!

They always say, eat authentic cousine where the staff is "autentic". I have never been in japan, but I can imagine: it has the same atmosphere as this place. Everybody is just so generous, however I had better curry in my life. But for the feeling, i would totally come back!

I visited here in September. I like Japanese food and especially Noodles. I had Tonkatsu topping which is unusual kind of ramen(or udon) in Japan. I could choose the type of noodle, I had Udon. It was good but the Tonkatsu was a little bit salty and thinner than I expected. the soup was nice. :) I also had green... More
