Ichiraku Japanese Noodle Bar, Eastwood Sydney

Ichiraku Japanese Noodle Bar on Urbanspoon

Shop 2, 4A Hillview Road, Eastwood NSW 2122

Opened: Tuesday to Sunday: Lunch 11:30am - 3.00pm, Dinner 5.30pm to 9.30pm.

Dinner time finds me in Eastwood, Sydney. Now this suburb is probably more "Chinatown" than "Chinatown" in Sydney city. I think they should rename it. Eastwood is buzzing with people at night, queues and queues of people line up at the restaurants. Makes me feel like I'm in Asia again! Japanese, Chinese, Shanghai and Korean restaurants. Plenty to choose from. But be early otherwise you may find it hard to get a spot to eat!

I'm craving Japanese tonight. So it’s to Ichiraku Japanese Noodle Bar I go.

Set in a tranquil and attractive setting with a wide variety of exotic teas, coffees as well as an a la carte lunch menu.
