Disappointingly it was tasty but a very english take on Japanese food! Portion size not made clear! Staff very pleasant but not very clear on what constitutes and makes a reasonable portion combination and size! Duck meat rather tough. Gyoza very soggy .

I liked it here when I went a few years ago, but last night I really didnt enjoy the food or drink. The standard has really got sloppy. Service was fine but overall disappointing experience.

We were placed at our reserved tables immediately, and the staff were friendly, attentive, and able to alter the dishes (ingredients) where possible without issues. Was able to specify whether we'd like the noodles soft or standard. BBQ Bun, Prawn Tempura and Ramen bowls were great. Highly recommend.

Great food, excellent Tonkotsu ramen with juicy pork. Cramped tables and hit and miss service - had to confirm 3 times that I wanted a hot matcha latte not iced and still received ice. Asked for sugar but then wasn’t given a spoon.

Great ramen! The soup is extremely fragrant!! I recommend booking because it gets crowded at meal times.

Was very busy during our visit but still managed to maintain a good level of service. Food came promptly and was delicious. Not too noisy despite being busy.
