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.

If you were one of those people like myself that watched the classic Japanese movie called Tampopo, you will know that it's about Ramen. The success of a Ramen shop is when patrons would not only finish off the noodles but also the broth which the noodles are served in. Service here is proficient and no matter what time it... More

Authentic Japanese Ramen restaurant run by Japanese. The broth is rich and flavourful and the ramen is done just right. Friendly service tops it all off.

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.
