    The char siu buns were cold. The ramen was quite bland, especially the miso chicken ramen.

    I normally use the shoryu in Henley court soho but love the food and restaurants settings, I’ve been dining at these restaurant for many years my only disappointment is recently you’ve changed one of my favourite dishes which use to be the curry ramen which had now changed to catsu curry ramen and the main ingredient that has changed is the chicken the main ingredient is still the same and a delight to eat but the old style chicken made the soup not really a fan of the way your new style chicken is as the the old way was so much nicer as my wife agrees and our friends that dine with us also thought the old style curry ramen was more satisfying to eat I did try to send an email months ago to explain my concerns but had no response and found it very difficult in finding the correct email for your chain.

    Value for money, especially with the eat out scheme. The food was very good portioned and the ramen and broth was really tasty and I'm not usually a ramen fan. The chicken karaage bao was realy nice too!

    The restaurant was cold, music was loud, staff where stand offish. Ordered our food, Katsu curry, Vegetarian Ramen and Takoyaki. The Katsu Curry came out after 10 mins and looked great. Once out, our waitress sat down opposite to have her lunch. Another 15 mins went by and i had get up and walk to the kitchen to ask if my food was almost ready. I understand it takes time to cook, but we where the only two guests waiting for lunch. Another 5 mins went by and it came out. Tofu was cooked on one side and soggy on the other. My takoyaki never arrived ... Completely underwhelmed by the experience and wont be going back.

    the food was lovely but the service was horrendous, honestly one of the worst managed and ran restaurants I have ever been to. There were people waiting for food and drinks across the restaurant, and the waiting staff were just running around aimlessly and the place was unclean with tables littered with plates etc. We waited 35 minutes for drinks, 45 to order and I nearly gave up when paying the bill which they had the cheek to add service charge to. It was chaos, utter chaos.

    Loved the place as great food nice staff and relaxed not-pretentious place. Down to earth with a relaxed atmosphere in between a take away and a restaurante. Good vaue for money but: 1) service isn't great (got order wrong and a beer took 10 min to land on my table...) they could do with some more japanese staff, famous for being incredibly customer service-friendly.
