Hayashi Ramen Reviews

Hayashi Ramen Google Average Rating



Was recommended by a friend years ago and this time finally got the chance to try. They opened at 11:30am and there’s already a queue at 12pm, they will close upon the soup runs out.

We waited like less than 15 mins. The shop is small, have a self-service machine at the door. They actually have 3 options only and we ordered charsiu ramen with seasoned egg - 焼豚らーめん(味玉付き)which is 1,400yen, the soup was really great and I don’t usually drink ramen soup, now i can tell why there’s so many people lining up, especially most of them are local people!


Was recommended this ramen shop by a friend
So it’s quite popular and we queued about 15 min to get in, shop has around 10 seats so you do have to wait during peak hours
The ramen machine only takes cash and 10,000 is not accepted
The ramen however was extremely good and the soup was very flavourful
Cha siew meat was also tender. Definitely recommended


Extremely delicious ramen with tonkatsu+seafood based broth. They only do this one style so they've really perfected it. The broth was amazing and at the same time not overly rich that I can't finish it, the noodles were also cooked to perfection, but the pork was honestly below average.

We waited about 35 minutes on a Saturday at 2:30pm so I can't imagine the wait at regular meal times. They ran out of their 1400 yen bowl with extra pork by this time.

I'm also shocked at all the one star reviews complaining about rudeness, the owners were extremely nice and polite.
