Hai Hai Ramen


Hai Hai Ramen is a little Japanese ramen bar found in a black worker’s cottage on Paddington’s Latrobe Tce.

The menu at Hai Hai (Japanese for ‘yes yes’) consists of just 3 delectable ramen dishes – pork, chicken or vegetarian (shio or soy) with accompaniments and sides, available for dine-in or take away.
