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

If you are looking for the great ramen without having to learn Japanese, Ippudo should be your choice. We had two types of lunch menu with ramen and gyoza and everything was fantastic. Service was nice and attentive even during the busy lunch time. Yes, you would probably have to queue for a while but no one will rush you... More

Really enjoyed this good ramen. Definitely want to do "do-overs" here. There is ramen and there is good ramen. This is good!

Our first taste of proper Hakata ramen was amazing! We found this via trusty trip advisor and was not disappointed. They offer a few different dishes, i got the classic and my partner got the fiery hot one which she said was fantastic. You can pick your level of heat from 1-5 and 3 had quite the kick! We also...

We found this place via Tripadvisor, and it was well worth to visit. They mainly serve ramen soups, which we enjoyed a lot. They have English menu (which is rare in Japan), and we were served fast. Be prepared that you might be seated with other unknown guest at a bigger table, but it is part of their concept. It... More
