If you are looking for affordable and authentic japanese ramen, you come to the right place. The staff are all Japanese who can speak English, so expect the food to taste like authentic Japanese food. Value for money is ok, the serving is generous. Go...More

Quick service once seated, was well worth the short wait for a table. It's an obviously popular restaurant - and for good reason. Perfect meal for those cold winter/autumn nights. Lovely staff and friendly atmosphere.

Right in the CBD, this place offers a quick hot bowl of deliciousness. We both had the Tonpopo ramen with extra charshui - tasty broth, not stingy with the garlic oil. Also took this peach drink which we didn't know had alcoholic but brilliant nonetheless.

This is a very small restaurant along Anzac Avenue that serves the best ramen I've ever eaten before. They also serve a vegetarian ramen dish. Recommended.

The restaurant is perfect: budget-friendly, delicious, big servings (one ramen is good for 2 people), clean, comfortable, and great ambiance.

Do not go for ambiance. Formica tables in rather dingy room. Ramen was OK, but I found the broth a little bland. Cannot say I am a ramen expert, but I would not run back here.

Excellent ramen soup! Asked for it medium spicy and they got it perfectly. The soup is incredibly tasty and the noodles were perfectly cooked. It's not a fancy place by any measure but it is definitely worth stopping in.
