Perth has no shortage of Japan’s favourite comfort food – here are our favourite picks for where to get your next ramen hit.


Perth ramen fiends will need no introduction to Nao Ramen. Since relocating from their original Murray Street digs, they’ve continued to set the standard. Choosing from four broth flavours (shoyu, miso, shio and spicy miso), four styles of noodles (original egg, green spinach, red chilli or black squid ink), as well as an array of extra toppings you can customise your order to make your perfect bowl of ramen. If it’s a hot day, check out their specialty cold ramen and tsukemen.

Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King

If you’re going to do just one thing, you’ve gotta do it well. That’s the whole idea behind cult noodle chain Ramen Keisuke Tonkotsu King – tonkotsu ramen, and that’s it.

Tosaka Ramen Bar

Tosaka are specialists in tori paitan ramen: instead of pork-based tonkotsu, tori paitan features a chicken broth that is rich and creamy, yet light. For plant-based ramen lovers, you can finally get in on the action, too! Tosaka has plenty of vegetarian and vegan options available, made with a vegetable and soy bean broth. Plus, they also have shirataki konjac noodles available – a gluten free and low calorie alternative to regular egg noodles. No matter your dietary preferences, Tosaka has you covered.

If you name your restaurant Super Tasty, you’ve got a lot to live up to. Luckily, beloved ramen chain Bari-Uma have more than held up their end of the deal with their first Australian location. Rich porky broth, thick-cut chashu, jammy eggs and some A+ sides as well.

Ageto Ramen

For a few weeks there, it seemed we couldn’t spend a minute scrolling TikTok or Instagram before seeing the deep verdant hues of Ageto’s matcha ramen. Opening in December of 2023, their signature bowl merges the deep, bitter-note earthiness of matcha with the rich umami of chashu pork – but if that’s not your jam, the spicy sesame goma ramen is a constant source of temptation to us.

With a brand new name and a new(ish) location at FOMO Freo, Komatsu (FKA Dosukoi) remains a fast, furious and frankly delicious destination. They’ve kept things at a wallet-friendly price point, pumping out bowls and bowls of goodness rain, hail or shine.

Ramen Samurai

Ramen Samurai are serious when it comes to ramen. From the fresh in-house noodles to a broth that’s simmered for over ten hours – Ramen Samurai can certainly hold their own. But don’t mistake that for being slaves to authenticity, these guys are open to experimentation: kimchi ramen, curry ramen, and heaps of customisations available for even the most particular noodle fan.

Hakata Gensuke

After winning hearts in Melbourne, Hakata Gensuke finally made it over to Perth in 2017. With a signature tonkotsu broth, or a choice of black sesame tonkotsu, the spicy “God Fire”, or the lighter shio tonkotsu options, these guys know soup. Get a top-up of their noodles, which are chewier and finer than you might traditionally expect, and made in-house with a specialty blend of flour.

Hailing from ramen mecca Hakata, Ippudo has become a global ramen institution. Certainly not minimalists, the menu ranges from bar snacks, to salads, to steamed buns. But it’s the ramen that really shines – and in particular their specialty tonkotsu broth. Whether you choose the original, creamy option, with miso and garlic oil, or with spicy ground pork miso, it definitely deserves to be slurped up at full zuzutto volume.

Ramen Ichiraku

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of William Street, you’ll find Ramen Ichiraku. These guys are passionate about bringing the comfort of ramen to everyone: as well as their signature 12-hour tonkotsu broth, they also offer a vegan broth made with a combination of vegetables, mushrooms and kombu. But that’s not all – they also offer an entire! Vegan! Menu! That’s right, an entire vegan menu, covering all the bases from faux chicken karaage and gyoza to bento boxes.
