Best Laksa in Tokyo
There are around 20 or so Singaporean restaurants in Tokyo, many of which serve the delicious Laksa Curry Noodle soup but where can you get the best Laksa in Tokyo?
Check out the video for the Best Laksa in Tokyo and Best Singapore Restaurants in Tokyo
I have checked out many of the Singapore restaurants in Tokyo and have found some awesome Laksa noodle soups.
Presenting the Top 5 Best Laksa Noodles soups in Tokyo:
No 5. Laksa at Singapore Holic Laksa Restaurant in Harajuku Tokyo
Holic Laksa Restaurant specialises in Laksa. If you like your Laksa noodle soup spicy, then this is the place to come. Holic Laksa Restaurant pretty much only serve laksa, apart from some chicken rice sets, the only thing on the menu is Laksa.
You can get a small Laksa for 500 Yen, medium sized Laksa for 800 Yen or a large Laksa for 1000 Yen. The Laksa comes with just the delicious spicy soup, noodles, some bean sprouts and a few small prawns.
You can also get the Laksa with a Chicken and rice combo. This is the option I went for so I could add the chicken slices into the laksa noodle soup. You can also pay a little bit extra to spice up the soup. An extra 30 Yen gives you a Hot laksa. An extra 50 Yen gives you a Very Hot Laksa and an extra 100 yen gives you a Super Hot Laksa. I went for the Hot Laksa and it was pretty spicy! I do like spicy food but I don’t think I would have enjoyed the Very Hot or Super Hot Laska – too spicy.
Singapore Holic Laksa is just a few minutes walk from Harajuku JR Station which is only 2 stops away from Shinjuku Station. The restaurants is only tiny with about 8 tables which fills up quickly. They do offer take-away or you can hang around and wait for a table.

No 4. Laksa at Hainan Chi-Fan Singapore Restaurant in Akasaka Tokyo
Hainan Chi-Fan is located on the lower Ground floor of the Akasaka Biz Tower, which is directly above the Akasaka Train Station. A small restaurant which specialises in loads of different Singapore food like Chicken Rice, Singapore Satay but I came here for the Laksa.
The Laksa at Hainan Chi-Fan Restaurant was very impressive. They offer 2 different types of noodles, a thick egg noodle or thin rice noodles. When I ordered they didn’t ask me which noodles I wanted and they sent out the thick egg noodles which was fine by me. I would have preferred the thin rice noodles but the egg noodles were tasty.
The Laksa at Hainan Chi-Fan has loads of tasty items packed into the soup. As well as the noodles, they have some bean sprouts, tofu skins, 2 large prawns, some soft boiled quail eggs, some slices of fish cake and slices of cucumber on the top.
Check out Hainan Chi-Fan’s website (in Japanese but use Google translate to covert to English)
No 3. Laksa at Hainan Jeefan Shokudo Singapore Restaurant in Ebisu Tokyo
It was a very hard decision between No 3 and No 2. I really enjoyed the Laksa at Hainan Jeefan in Ebisu and I could have easily put this in second spot. Read below why No 2 snuck into that position.
The Laksa at Hainan Jeefan is an excellent Laksa. It comes out bubbling hot, in a piping hot clay bowl. Loaded on top is a big spoon full of spicy sambal. There are big chunks of baked tofu which I love. Inside the soup are really tasty thin rice noodles, bean sprouts, 3 soft boiled quail eggs and slices of fish cake.
Hainan Jeefan is a top notch Singapore restaurant. They have this restaurant which is 5 minutes walk from Ebisu Station and they also have another restaurant a few minutes walk from Azabu-Juban Station. They specialise in Hainan Chicken rice and only serve the Laksa in the evenings on their dinner menu. I made the mistake of going to their Azabu-Juban restaurant at lunch time and was disappointed they didn’t have laksa but had a damn good Hainan Chicken rice for lunch.
They have very friendly staff at Hainan Jeefan and have an English menu!

No 2. Laksa at Sin Tong Kee Singapore Restaurant in Ebisu Tokyo
Sin Tong Kee is actually my favourite Singapore restaurant in Tokyo. If this was a list of the best Singapore Restaurants in Tokyo, then Sin Tong Kee would definitely be number 1.
The Laksa at Sin Tong Kee is excellent and I tried a few other dishes here including the Singapore Chicken Satay and their fish Otak Otak which is also excellent. If you love Singapore food then you have to try Sin Tong Kee which is just a few minutes walk from Ebisu Station.
The Laksa is packed full of flavour and also lots of tasty goodies inside the soup. When the Laksa comes out it is so well presented and colourful with slices of egg, coriander, slices of fish cake and tofu skins proudly displayed on top of the soup.
Inside there are delightful thin laksa noodles, bean sprouts, some thick juicy prawns and the soup has some spicy chopped chillies with some delicious chilli oil floating on top. So much flavour and a pleasure to eat.
Check out the Sin Tong Kee Singapore Restaurant website for a full list of the delicious Singapore food they serve.
No 1. Laksa at Mu Hung Restaurant in Nishi-Ogikubo Tokyo
The Laksa at Mu Hung Restaurant is by far the best Laksa in Tokyo. Mu Hung Restaurant is located in Nishi-Ogikubo which is around 15 minutes by train from Shinjuku Station and well worth the trip to get there.
Mu Hung only serve their Laksa on Saturday and Sunday so plan a trip to this restaurant on the weekend. If you do go in during the week then they have loads of delicious Singaporean and Malaysian food like Hainan Chicken Rice, Roti Chennai and Chicken Curry. You need to get here early for lunch as the restaurant fills up quickly.
The Laksa at Mu Hung has so much going on which scored itself the No 1 Best Laksa in Tokyo.
The Laska is perfectly presented with loads of colour with slices of egg, coriander, slices of spring onions and juicy prawns displayed on top of the Laksa noodle soup. The noodles are thin rice noodles and there are bean sprouts, slices of tofu skins, slices of fish cake and once I got to the bottom of the soup I discovered some delicious ground beef right at the bottom of the soup.
The flavour of the Laksa intensifies as you eat it and the best bit is slurping up the soup once you have worked your way through all the goodies in this delightful Laksa noodle soup.
If you want to try the Best Laksa in Tokyo then make a trip to Mu Hung Restaurant on the weekend and ENJOY!
