Ramen Sho Reviews

Ramen Sho Google Average Rating



Ramen Sho was on our ramen hit list and we were so excited that the day we visited there was no line! We went for dinner here after attending sunset Shibuya sky on a Thursday just before 7pm to finish the night on a high.

The dynamic bowl of ramen was nothing I’ve tasted before. The broth was light yet full of flavour that I still remember how it tasted. Noodles were also the perfect thickness and texture to compliment the broth and act as the device to enjoy the broth.

Ramen Sho was an absolutely delicious and I high recommend putting this one on your list if you’re a ramen lover. When you want a comforting bowl of ramen that isn’t too rich, Ramen Sho is the go-to.

I am waiting for the day I return to order another bowl.


Broth was rich and balanced and the noodles really hit the spot.

Only quibble was the savoury/fermenty cooking odor near the back of the store was quite strong. Not unpleasant per se, but might be overwhelming. Quite a few ramen places tend to have this ventilation issue so this is not something unique to them.

We got here half an hour after opening and had a ten minute wait, and we saw that the queue had grown much longer by the time we were seated. Definitely go early if possible.


Delicious light ramen, with silky smooth noodles. Toppings were excellent, very good egg, dumplings and chashu. A really well balanced and dynamic bowl of ramen. Fun authentic ramen shop atmosphere. Highly recommend.
