“Healthy ramen bowls” and “the best karaage fried chicken in town” are the secrets behind the rapid growth of the cramped Japanese pitstops, of which there are now 10 in London – the most recent openings, in Shoreditch and Peckham, having followed a £5million investment in 2019. They provide “a meal that could fill you up for a day”, with “excellent service from a really friendly team who go the extra mile”.

“The broth is so incredibly thick and creamy, and this combined with the very generous servings make for a very good quick eat” at these cramped ramen pit-stops serving “noodles… more noodles… and some side dishes for those not wanting noodles”. “As it’s just a place for sustenance, you go with the flow, but staff are friendly and helpful”.

Fans still hail “the most amazing ramen outside Japan!” at these cramped noodle stops, but for doubters they “were so good, but are more average now”. A fair middle view is they are “quick and cheap, with a nice ambience”.

“Deservedly popular for a good slurp”, say fans of these “cramped and buzzy” noodle stops, who praise “broths that are things of beauty”. Critics on the other hand “don’t understand the hype” – they feel it’s “passable when hungry” but “nothing more”.
