I am not a Ramen expert, but this is the best I've had anywhere. Same goes for the pork buns. But the place is noisy as hell! (Did you hear me?) The servers yell their greetings for every customer entering or leaving the place - and the turnover is high. If you're sitting around a large table you can't hear your company from across. Perhaps it's a strategy to prevent people from lingering, but it makes it overall an unpleasant experience and hard to enjoy the food.

The ramen and broth was good but serving size is paltry considering the price ($15). I had the Hakata classic and the noodles were on the thin side. I prefer them thicker. The samurai short ribs were excellent. Atmosphere has energy and young vibe to it. Went on a Monday before 530pm and had a 20 minute wait. Definitely would not wait 1.5-2 hrs to eat here. It's good but was expecting much more given the rave reviews.

Went for lunch the other day. The prices have skyrocketed. The basic bowl is $14; you receive a paltry amount of noodles, two of the thinest pieces of sliced pork this side of the afterlife, a few scallions and a bit of ginger. The broth needed to be much hotter. The trick here is getting the diner to buy up. Extra for more pork, extra for more scallions or an egg, etc. With tax and tip, a bowl of "plain" ramen was over $18. The place was packed with 20 somethings by 1pm. Service was good. Too bad I won't be back.

I'm a Japanese American who previously resided in Roppongi, Tokyo. I just tried Ippudo twice and have to say, I am not impressed. The pork belly buns and ramen don't compare at all to other Japanese restaurants. I think they should try polishing up the flavor. The food is somewhat lacking. Sadly disappointed with Ippudo!

Every single ramen dish was pork. Who does that?

Its pretty good but didn't live up to my expectations. I still prefer Momofuko and the buns here didn't compare. I didn't care for the mayo in the buns and rice either, wish I told them to hold it. It had a good vibe though.

The broth is awesome. Two slivers of pork belly in a not hot enough soup was a downer for $14.00. $8.00 for two small pork buns? Really!
