“Tasty (and filling) noodle dishes and decent quality sashimi” draw a steady crowd to these Japanese pit stops: a “good option in busy, trendy areas”, even if “space is cramped” and “you might have to queue”.

“Super-tasty ramen soups and moreish meat-filled buns” still win praise for these “very cramped” Japanese pit stops. Fans say “they put pretenders like Wagamama to shame”, but overall ratings here are not as stratospheric as once they were.

For fans of these “crowded and cramped” Japanese, they are a “go-to, quick cheap eat with steaming bowls of ramen”; overall though, ratings were more M.O.R. this year.
