Harden's says

Bringing some street cred to Victoria's new residential and restaurant development, Nova, is Ross Shonhan (the daddy of Bone Daddies). He plans to open a ramen bar serving noodles, filled buns and a take on Osaka-style Okonomiyaki. It sounds like it could be Shonhan’s largest venue to date with two floors and outside space.

“Super ramen” constitutes “a top meal at a great price” at these Japanese-style fast-food bars. In early 2021, the brand opened on Putney High Street in a former branch of Byron and later announced ‘Wing Daddies’ (a virtual chicken wing delivery option at all its London stores).

“Incredibly filling bowls of ramen” – backed up by “interesting menus of delicious food, served quickly with a smile” – attract an enthusiastic crowd to this small chain of hip Japanese-style fast-food bars, although feedback supports the view that “the original in Soho is by far the best”. The founder, Aussie-born, Nobu-trained chef Ross Shonhan, has spun off a series of “Asian-fusion” concepts – Flesh & Buns, Shack-Fuyu and his latest, Poke-Don.

The “perfect westernised Japanese food” at former Zuma and Nobu chef Ross Shonhan’s “hip” ramen-bar chain “shows how to do fusion”: “the soup stock is wonderfully thick and full of flavour, not watery like other places”. Top Tip: “soft shell crab ramen”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
