Excellent ramen. Comfortable setting. Friendly service.

I came for the lunch special from 12-2:30 which is also available for happy hour from 5-6 on weekdays. £7 for a bowl of ramen + toppings sold separately. This worked out to be how much their normal ramen is but the best thing was customizing it for your preference.
