About

This is a reservation made for our branch in Piccadilly. We do not take reservations for our branch in Covent Garden.

At all times, 50% of our tables in our restaurant are kept unreserved so we can accommodate anyone who visits us.

Kanada-Ya Piccadilly is an authentic Japanese ramen bar, specialising in delicious tonkotsu ramen cooked from a recipe created by Kanada Kazuhiro, founder of our restaurant in Yukuhashi, Japan.

As well as our signature ramen, you will find a range of Onigiri (premium Japanese rice balls wrapped in Nori) as well as a selection of beers, sakes and soft drinks, all served in a friendly, informal setting.

A fantastic place for ramen, small menu but they offer top quality. Felt a bit uncomfortable with the service, the venue is extremely small and the staff was therefore standing at our table watching us. Drinks we ordered never came but they provided water as soon as we were seated which was very kind.

Enjoyed the tonkatsu x, which is meant to be unique to London. Enjoyed the broth. Not to gamey taste.Next time I need to remember to add egg to the order for a more complete and wholesome taste. Would have enjoyed it with more pieces of meat but still enjoyed the ramen.

We are happy that we could reserve a table at this restaurant because there was a long queue outside. The noodles are indeed excellent with a very delicious soup base. Noodles are reasonably priced. Fried chicken has a strong garlic taste so not recommended if you don't like garlic. Noodle top-up costs 4 euros, so good for those with a bigger apetit.

What has happened to this place?! Our ramen was served luke warm and our waitress was extremely rude who dropped a few edemame beans while serving us and proceeded to picking them up from our table and eating them around the corner. Ergh

Had a lovely pre-theatre meal with friends and this was super tasty without weighing us down in our seats for the performance. There isn't a vast menu but there doesn't need to be - they concentrate on Ramen dishes and the spicy Gekikara I had was absolutely delicious. I also really enjoyed the Karaage and the Chashu Don rice - so much flavour packed into it. Looking forward to heading back soon...

We dine here a few times a year and weekends during the summer tourist season the quality of the food and prep there of REALLY suffers!
They have overloaded their kitchen badly.
The rest of the year the food is much better

The food and service were outstanding however the experience was marred by the tiny and cramped seating space and the sweltering heat. It's unfortunate it's the only of the two spots that take reservations. I will not return.

Great ramen, one of the best meals we had. Even though we had a reservation, they only allowed us to sit when the entire party was here. As there were 6 of us in the party, some obviously came later and so we weren't able to sit until much later. Fortunately, it wasn't much later as they said, if the party arrives too late, they wont be able to hold our reservation... booo.... But on a bright side, I told them in advance that it was my friend's birthday and they kindly celebrated his birthday! That was pretty neat.

First impression was not good as we were made to wait until all members of our group had arrived before getting a table, and nowhere to wait except on a busy noisy street! However luckily everyone arrived within 5 minutes (most unusual!). Food was excellent, service very good and all had a splendid meal (birthday treat before theatre round the corner).

Delicious ramen! We had the Tonkotsu X, a mixture of pork and chicken broth that was super tasty. Unfortunately the regular Tonkotsu wasn't available which is a shame as it's the restaurant's signature dish. The truffle salt edamame were a treat. Service was quick and efficient. It's a shame the place was roastingly hot - the air con was switched on eventually but we were sweltering.

This location accepts reservations, the one in St. Giles street does not. As we were the last table of the night - I saw the staff turn away many hopeful customers without reservations to ensure that there was enough ramen left for our party. By the time I arrived at the restaurant (shortly after 8pm) 3 types of Ramen had already sold/run out that night. So eat and/or arrive early is key! The Tonkatsu X ramen was very tasty - very rich and fatty. My friends had the Geikara ramen, which they were both very happy with. We shared some edamame with truffle salt which was a great snack! Service was attentive, friendly, and quick.
