A third London outpost for this global, Japan-based noodle outfit arrives on the Embankment. There are already sites in Covent Garden and Canary Wharf. The E14 branch in particular gets positive feedback from our reporters for its “decent ramen”.
Harden's survey result
“A genuine import from Japan”; lovers of “decent, authentic noodles” give the thumbs-up to the “authentic” ramen served at the three London branches of this chain originating in Fukuoka, with venues in Holborn, Embankment and Canary Wharf. One aficionado insists they’re actually “better than their Japanese outlets (although twice the price!)”.
“Decent ramen and one of the better food options on the Wharf” – twin selling points of this global, Japan-based noodle outfit (whose unit in WC2’s Central St Giles Piazza doesn’t incite any feedback).
“Fresh” ramen, “gorgeous miso soup”, and “helpful staff” are the draws at the London outlets of this global, Japan-based noodle chain with branches near Centre Point and in Canary Wharf, although some would argue that they do suffer from “that ‘chain’ feel”.
“It shouldn’t be hard to take a reliable international formula and clone it”, but these new outposts of the global Japanese tonkotsu chain get a mixed rep – even those who rate its first branch as “very good” say “it’s inferior to Kanada-Ya across the road”, and the worst reports are of food that’s “watery and greasy”.
