I frequently walk past this Ippudo located between Gaienmae and Omotesando station but decided to give it ago!
Order at your table and pay at your table... there is no money machine with buttons and you get your own waitress. It was nice to relax and drink my beer in this atmosphere. But not to worry there are also counter seats in the back.
I went for the beer, gyoza and ramen set.
Just the right amount of ramen noodles. You won't get full.
Mini gyoza with the yuzu spice is nice.
If you are craving ramen on a date night then this is the only spot in Tokyo I can recommend to take a girl because of the nice restaurant style interior.
