Restaurant description

A ‘top tip’ for ramen according to The Guardian’s food critic, Jay Rayner, Shoryu Covent Garden is a Theatreland opening for the acclaimed Japanese restaurant fleet. Dine surrounded by sleek, minimalist décor, rustic exposed brickwork and Japanese murals.

The varied Shoryu menu is headed by ramen noodle dishes, made with 12-hour-cooked broth, juicy pork belly and a nitamago egg. Guests can select extra toppings, as well as sides like prawn tempura, gyoza dumplings and doughy shoryu buns. Traditional desserts at Shoryu in Covent Garden include mochi balls, cleansing sorbets and Japanese-inspired cheesecakes and cakes.

Along with a list of enticing house cocktails, Shoryu in London serves iced beers and Japanese whisky, and resident sake experts are on hand to help with matching drinks.

Praised in the industry’s most respected food publication, The Michelin guide, Shoryu restaurant offers authentic cuisine in cosmopolitan surroundings. Covent Garden Tube Station is a 4-minute walk away.

    Very tasty, albeit a fairly limited menu. No need to have a starter though, because the main course portion is very generous. Dead easy to get to this restaurant from Shaftsbury Avenue - 15 minutes gentle stroll.

    It is a shame that despite my reservation we ended up squeezed on a small table and the service was not at its best - the food it's just amazing though! it's all about the food really, this is the main (sometimes only) thing you gonna love. Well done to the chefs not so much to the FOH. I will visit again but probably will opt for another location.

    Food is great, and the interior of the Covent Garden restaurant is really nice. We had a bit of a faff when we first arrived and they couldn't find our booking, the waiter was quite short with us and insistant we were just at the wrong branch, but before too long he did manage to find our reservation. We were a group of 9 and we did end up a little squashed - for big groups I'd reccomend going to a bigger branch.

    To be honest this little restaurant didn't look much from the outside. However, the food and service were lovely. The food was plentiful and our waiter helped us to choose from a fairly eclectic menu. My daughter was unable to finish all her chicken and noodles and they provided a lovely take out to take back to University. I thought it was excellent value for money and would definitely recommend.

    Great ramen as ever but the service was pretty terrible and endless alarms going off at the workstation right next to our table didn’t make for a great dining experience...

    Was so nice loved the little things like that they play a drum when you come in and that your welcomed ?? food was nice for the price only problem we had was I ordered a gin and tonic and the waitress who seemed to be very new as saw her mess up a couple of things with other table gave me a tiny amount of tonic (less than a shot ) ?? to go with a double shot of gin haha a bit strong but that’s fine I understand things happens and she was new so she wouldn’t have know better the manager though was very very kind and hand made a new drink for me and my partner which tasted a lot better thankyou so much for that ?????????????????? Also was so kind to discount the meal because of that slip up will definitely Come again :)
