Ippudo is designed to introduce the Japanese noodle culture into Australian dining.

More than just a restaurant, Ippudo is a gallery of the noodle culture, displaying traditional noodle bowls and spoons, and a traditional clay feature will from Hakata, the birth-place of Ippudo. The enthusiasm of the staff is reflected in their greetings and service – all becoming part of the Ippudo dining experience.

Ippudo is known for their ‘crafted’ dishes. The noodle making process is part of the experience, with photos & books about the routine & recipe. This meticulous attention to detail carries from the food to the interior, where great detail is seen in the application of natural finishes. The interior is exciting and natural – the gentle timber curves are welcoming, the overall experience is a unique and modern interpretation of dining in Japan.
