Whether you’re on a budget, in a hurry or just craving some comfort food, Tokyo’s best fast-food restaurants are sure to satisfy.
Restaurant, Ramen, $$$
has been called the best ramen in the world, so it’s no wonder that among Tokyo tourists, it’s also one of the most popular ramen restaurants. Ichiran became famous for their delicious pork bone (tonkotsu

Restaurant, Japanese, $$$
is one of Tokyo’s most well-known fast-food chains. They are a gyudon
(beef bowl) restaurant that opened their first shop over 100 years ago, in 1899. Today, you will find them almost anywhere, especially around train stations, recognizable by their bright orange signage. Yoshinoya’s biggest fans are salarymen in a hurry to get back to work after a quick lunch or those looking for a late-night meal.

is a popular burger chain with multiple overseas locations as well. While it is a fast-food joint, the food is good quality, which is one of the reasons why this place has been so successful. Their specialty is transforming an American favorite, the hamburger, into something that appeals to the Japanese palate.
