Who on earth doesn't like ramen? NOBODY! A bowl of ramen is enough to draw a smile on your face. And of course no ramen in the whole wide world can beat the original ramen made in Japan. The savory taste of its broth, the chewy noodles, the orangey half boiled eggs, the just perfectly cooked meat, the fresh sliced leek, Oh My Goodness! Just thinking of that makes our mouth-watering.

Ramen Honolu Review Ramen Honolu Osaka on Halal Navi :

"Walked a bit from Namba Station but it was well worth it. We came just before it closes at 2:30pm to be opened again at 5.30pm. The 3 of us ordered different sets and were all satisfied with our bowl of ramen. The broth is freshly made with their own concoction of spices. I was in ramen heaven. I Asked for spicy, with fried chicken - If this is not authentic ramen, I don't know what is. Don't forget to compliment the chef, he'd be so happy when you tell him 'Oiishi!'" - Ruby Umm Khalid

Shinjuku Gyouen Ramen Ouka Review on Halal Navi :

"One of the best ramen in town. The set come with roasted chicken after finished the noodle ( ramen) the waiter teach us to eat rice with leftover soup from ramen. Their roasted chicken was soo good.

3. Naritaya (Tokyo, Miyagi, Kyoto)

Naritaya which has three branches all over Japan is a restaurant under a noodle producer company. They produce and supply the noodle for the ramen to their own restaurant. Naritaya is very popular among tourist and foreigner. The restaurant earned Halal certification on its three branches so you may slurp your noodle without a need to worry.


  Review Naritaya Asakusa on Halal Navi :

"Among all the menus, my favourite is mazesoba (noodle with no soup) and karaage (the japanese style friend chicken). The price is very affordable too. And, they also provide praying space. But what I love the most from Naritaya is the ice cream! It's rice ice cream with soy milk and available in three flavours: vanilla, azuki (red beans), and kodaimai (Japanese ancient rice). Wish it were sold in Japanese supermarkets and I can easily get it when craving for ice cream!" - Aprilia Suandi

4. Kaijin Ramen (Tokyo)

This restaurant has been operating for 8 years and is very popular with its 100% fish based ramen. They also use a different type of fish in their ramen on seasonal and daily basis. So you won't get bored and can always expect to taste something new from its broth. Although it is not Halal certified, but they do not use any pork or alcohol in their ingredients. Do ask them to swap the chicken topping with shrimp as their chicken is not Halal.

Kaijin Ramen Review on Halal Navi :

"Found this restaurant from a review in halal navi. This ramen's broth are made from fish. So its okay for a muslim to eat here. The broth is okay, but the noodles not so good for me. But if you wanna try fish broth ramen, you can visit here. Ps: I would recommend to choose a meal set without grilled rice ball. You'd be full after you had a bowl of ramen. You won't have space for a rice ball." - Muhamad Salihin Mpa

5. Torisoba Ayam Ya (Kyoto & Tokyo)

The Kyoto branch of this restaurant is only 10 minutes walk from Kyoto station. It's definitely a perfect place for having dinner after a long and tiring day exploring Kyoto. This restaurant has a ticketing machine to order the foods and fortunately, it has an English translation. Most reviewers in Halal Navi mentioned that the size is rather small so you might consider ordering two portions or at least a side dish to fuel up your tummy.

Torisoba Ayam Ya   Review Torisoba Ayam Ya Kyoto on Halal Navi :

"This restaurant is a bit of a walk from Kyoto Station, but it has a large and comfortable prayer section and can seat our family of 8 easily. Service was fast, so it was a great first stop when we arrived in Kyoto. The chicken ramen was delicious, the broth was surprisingly creamy and flavourful and we couldn't get enough it. For those who love spicy ramen, try the mazesoba which is the perfect balance of savoury and spicy. The chicken charsiu rice was good, and could have been better if the serving size was larger. I would recommend it for children. Adults would need something more." - Najah Nasseri

6. Nikkoken (Tochigi)

Nikkkoen is famous with its Halal gyouza. The filling is made from tempeh (If you come from south east Asian, you must be very familiar with this!). Their gyouza is even sold at other restaurants too, yes that's how popular it is! Their speciality is miso ramen and beef tongue ramen (you heard us right!). It is located just in front of Sano station, so if you happen to visit Tochigi, don't forget to stop by here.

Located inside a ramen museum (Shin-Yokohama Rāmen Museum) at Yokohama, the restaurants here are just perfect for you who are die-hard fans of Ramen.  The admission fee to enter the museum is 300 yen and it showcases many different ramen shops. There is even a booth called My Ramen that enables you to make your own customised ramen. There are four restaurants which serve vegetarian and non-pork ramen menu that you can try; Ryu Shanghai Honten, Muku Zweite, Komurasaki, Shina Soba-ya, and Nidai-me Genkotsu-ya.

Shin-Yokohama Rāmen Museum Review on Halal Navi :
"Dont be fooled by the look. It's an all vegetarian ramen! The "chashu" meat is actually made by soy bean and they made it taste like tonkatsu. Honestly it taste like carbonara and it was so delicious ! The soup was so creamy and i couldn't tell that its made with vegi only :0 I really recommend this shop "komurasaki" if you ever visit ramen museum. Insyaallah halal :)." - Aida Nur Ariza

8. T's Tantan (Tokyo)

If you are on your way to your travel destination and ever pass by Tokyo station, this vegetarian ramen can be a good choice for you. It is located inside the ticket turnstile of the station, so don't get out from the gate to find this restaurant. A tip from us is try to look for Yaesu south exit and you will see a food hall called Keiyo street. You will soon find the restaurant from that hall.

T's Tantan Review on Halal Navi :
"I thank them for opening this vegetarian restaurant at Tokyo Station ーthe central mobility of the city, so it's very convenient for Muslim and vegetarian travelers who want to enjoy Japanese dishes while sticking to their dietary habits. I saw many foreign faces when I was there. Their specialty is ramen, and they serve also some other 'fake meat'-based menus like gyoza and karaage that are all actually made from soybeans. To me, the karaage tastes like "tempeh", and it's oishii! The price is quite good. I got "黒胡麻たんたん" or black sesame flavored ramen, extra topping, 3 pcs gyoza, and soybean karaage for 1750¥ in total.." - ndanazihah

9. Ittoryu (Oita)

A Muslim friendly ramen restaurant is available in Oita. Although they alsoserves non-Halal menu, but they use different utensils for Halal menu and even different chopsticks for Muslim customers.


Review on Halal Navi :

"Ramen Itto-Ryu is actually a common Japanese "ramen-ya-san", provides wide variety of ramen with pork, beef & chicken which are not halal, but alhamdulillah they also provide two halal menus (one is spicy one is not) that are using garlic soup as the substitute for broth. For these two ramen, they use different utensils specialized for Muslim customers. They give disposable cutlery as well for Muslim customers. This ramen shop is halal certified by Beppu Masjid, and is mentioned on Beppu's "Muslim Friendly Map" pamphlet published by the city hall. So, there's no worries to stop by this ramen shop when you're traveling to Beppu, the capital city of onsen ♨️" - ndanazihah

Address 15, 1, Beppu-shi, Ōita-ken
Phone 0977-25-6262
Halal tips*  Halal certified, some non-Halal menus are served

10. Naramachi Jinniyah (Nara)

Finally there is Halal ramen restaurant opened in Nara! It opened last year March 2016 in Naramachi shopping centre. We can see their traditional and ancient concept from the restaurant architecture (the building is 90 years old!) as well as their table and chairs which are made from Nara cedar wood. They offer three different types of ramen; Halal Ramen Jin, Halal Ramen Jinniyah dan Halal Ramen Naramachisou that you can enjoy with only 800 to 1700 yen.

Naramachi Jinniyah Review on Halal Navi :

"We went to this restaurant today. The ramen so delicious!!!! We also prayed at the prayer room provided. They have separate ablution area for women. The restaurant is not located at the main street so you have to be extra careful and search for the signboard.

From Kintetsu-Nara station the restaurant is 1km far. So if you can't walk just take 'Nara City Loop Bus' (the yellow bus) which cost ¥210 that runs every 10 minutes and stop at Watamachi (N15) and turn left at the street in front and walk about 250m and make sure to find the small signboard and turn right to the small street to reach the restaurant. Hope the direction will help you." - Hanihanami
