Number of customers

SHUJINKO derived from the Japanese word ‘しゅじんこう’ meaning ‘hero, main character’ embodies our vision at Melbourne’s premier authentic Japanese restaurant.

We are dedicated to craft an experience where every customer steps into their own starring role, basking in the spotlight during their visit with us.

Our ramen, reminiscent of Tokyo-style Tonkotsu with its rich pork-based broth, boasts a unique flavor profile that stands unmatched. Hours of dedication and meticulous craftsmanship go into crafting our broth, revealing its deep, complex flavors. We source only the freshest, daily-delivered ingredients and toppings for our ramen. Additionally, our Gyoza, prepared with a special recipe, perfectly complements our secret noodle and broth concoction, setting us apart from other ramen establishments.

At Shujinko, our motto is simple yet profound: ‘Put your heart into the noodles and your love into the soup.’ It’s a testament to our commitment to delivering an unparalleled culinary experience.

Thank you.
