Our Story

Ajisen Ramen Melbourne

opened in 2004.

Ajisen Ramen was founded in 1968 in Kumamoto, Japan by Mr Takaharu Shigemitsu. In 1997, Katsuaki Shigemitsu took over as the president of Ajisen ramen after Mr Takaharu Shigemitsu passed away. In 1996 Ajisen Ramen expanded internationally. Today, Ajisen Ramen totals over 800 branches all over the world, namely Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Korea, Philippines, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the U.S.A.


As for Ajisen Ramen Melbourne, we opened our first outlet on 11/11/2004 at 130 Bourke St Melbourne 3000. Subsequently Sydney and Adelaide opened its stores.

In 2011 Ajisen Ramen Melbourne expanded and opened its second outlet at 367 Burwood Rd Hawthorn, and we have been growing and expanding since then. Now you are able to find and visit our outlets in several suburbs in Victoria.


Ajisen Ramen specialises ramen in tonkotsu soup, which is pork bone soup. It has lots of collagen in the soup which is good for health and prevents ageing. Our noodle is made from wheat flour and cooked to al dente. With the addition of Senmiyu (our secret recipe), a rich brown sauce that accompanies the Tonkotsu soup, a bowl of Ajisen Ramen is tasty, delicious and satisfying. Just as the old Shigemitsu-San saying "安心、安全、健康·" which means assuring, safe and healthy.

Our goal is to make sure our customers get the best quality food at the most affordable price and also to follow our headquarter's motto of always ensure that our food is "assuring, safe and healthy".


Our aim is also to be the best ramen restaurant in Melbourne.
