Our restaurant Tonkotsu is named after the lip-smacking, creamy ramen typical in Kyushu, Japan’s southern-most island, but found all over Japan. Tonkotsu ramen’s smooth, silky consistency is created by cooking pork bones for up to 18 hours, which allows collagen and other porky goodness to be emulsified into the stock.
Great vibes! Service was very accommodating given I hadn't made a booking. Not too loud and food was great.
Just a note on the online billing system. Maybe wifi would help.
Fast and quick service and tasty food.
Always good food
Perfect for lunch following a trip to the Tate Modern. Delicious ramen and gyoza. Everything very quiet at the moment though - actually a pleasure for both gallery and restaurant!
Very tasty broth and fresh ramen, love the flavours.
Excellent ramen! Really enjoyed dinner here with my family and we'll definitely be coming back.
I always love Tonkotsu, great service and delicious food. Highly recommend the duck noodle salad for a lighter option!
Great tonkotsu ramen, the sides were okay but still it was a nice evening overall.
I think overall it's a good Ramen restaurant. I wish they had more Ramen options and baos on the menu would be nice, too. For some reason it was a bit busier, but service managed to keep up.
The food was excellent and the specials explained very clearly. The service was very attentive until towards the find of our meal when the restaurant got busier: we struggled to catch someone’s attention to get the bill and we had a train to catch. That was the only issue.
Amazing Ramen, very tasty. Try the Guiness ice-cream miso sandwich, never had anything like it, really nice
Went for a bowl of Raman and wasn’t disappointed. Delicious taste, scorching chilli, and friendly service. Will return soon
Average food. The ramen was not that great and it ended up costing a lot more than I had expected. There are much better ramen places in London
Loved my Tonkotsu Ramen bowl, great location and great service
Food was good for the price when we eventually got it! We were given some free drinks to compensate for the delay which was great. Strange that the katsu curry which i'm sure must be a favourite was only available until 5pm? Other than that all good. Not many imaginative veggie options.
For a quick meal it’s fine. But needed a little more spice and interest to food and more attentive service
The duck hiyashi ramen was the perfect dish for a hot day, would definitely recommend! The chicken karaage was also perfectly moist and well fried so absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great for a friend’s’ get-together, not too loud so we were able to comfortably catch up without having to shout across the table at each other. Service was very good, we originally booked a table for 5 but one of my friends ended up not being able to come which I told the waiter when we arrived and he immediately offered us a booth instead. He also brought us water as soon as he’d seated us which was very much needed on a hot summer’s day so very attentive service.
Always a stellar ramen meal in a relaxed and cozy setting. Food is a bit pricy, but it is quality.
I was looking for a good vegetarian ramen and Tonkotsu delivered. Nothing remarkable about the location or service. Good for an easy meal out.
The Ramen had no flavour and was too salty. My friends loved it but for me definitely the worst I’ve tried in London.
Nice food, decent menu. very friendly and helpful staff. fantastic location at the back of the Tate modern.
Food, service and ambience was all excellent. And great value for money. Will recommend to friends and will be back!
Restaurant was a little too loud and I would have preferred the option of being seated upstairs, not sure if this was an option?
Other than that, the food was fantastic as always and is one of my favourite eateries currently.
Very good Tonkotsu ramen.
Food was good and ambience was okay! They let us charge his phone in the back - which most restaurants do I guess, but then they reminded us when we were about to leave without his phone! :)
Amazing food and generous portions. Very patient and friendly service.
Delicious ramen. The food here is so worth it and very cheap for how much you get. Only downside is that it was very empty - it was a Wednesday and early but a bit more atmosphere would have been nice!
Menu isn't overlong, which is always a good thing, and it's just all really, really tasty!
Nice location near the Tate for a meal nearby. Got the Tonkatsu Ramen & there are nice vegetarian options for my boyfriend as well.
Really nice venue with good food and attentive customer service.
Tasty ramen. Always reliable. They had a Christmas offer which the waiter was a little slow to understand and the bathrooms were not that clean but this is a good option for a quick tasty affordable meal.
Amazing food, wonderful polite kind staff and quick service. The food was so good im thinking about it a week later !!!
We went here pre Theatre and had a selection of the sides rather than the ramen. The chicken Karage and the gyoza were great. Washed down with a lovely Japanese larger.
Enjoyed the ramen, great noodles. Good miso mushroom ramen.
Gyoza not amazing but good.
Good little caf style Japanese place. Staff friendly, helpful and attentive. Food was good and I would certainly go back if the opportunity arises. Good value.
Very tasty Ramen. Good value. Would recommend for a nice easy weeknight meal.
Great food, friendly staff
Good ramen but it’s not cheap and many mistakes in service - a vegetarian was served shrimp and our order was incorrect. I was then overcharged for a drink!
Excellent food and good service. Really enjoyed the Gyoza!
