About

Permanently Closed - United Ramen is an ode to great Ramen in Japan and celebrates the cultural influences and history that led to the development of modern ramen. Therefore, we believe that Ramen is a natural platform for cultural mash-ups. Our dishes have been created using traditions inspired by Japan and infused with different cultural flavours, whether this be our traditional Japanese Chashu (pork belly) Miso Ramen or our novel Yankee Doodle Ramen Noodle with BBQ pulled chicken, buttered sweetcorn and crispy bacon.
Our fun and lively interior has splashes of colour with vibrant orange and purple chairs set amid ramen inspired murals from graffiti artist Daisuke Sakaguchi of The 27 Life. Bright and welcoming throughout the day with a soft relaxing atmosphere in the evening.
At United Ramen we take the time to perfect the most wholesome and flavourful dishes with a mission of "Making you feel good. Inside & out. One bowl at a time."

The Ramen is one of the best I have ever had.
The deserts are also amazing, and I highly recommend the frozen mocha with sorbet.

Staff is lovely too and very accommodating.
They change their menu up as well so there's always something different.

Very good value too!

The waiter who served us was really friendly with a short introduction on what is on the menu and what is not available anymore. Really wanted to try their roast beef special but they RAN OUT!!!!
A little disappointed on prawn shoryu broth which came out to be a super salty soy sauce kind of broth. The spicy sesame broth was nice and the rice bowl are to go for!

Don't waste your money at this establishment, food was cold and not authentic. Noodles did not taste like ramen. They offered taste sake, however we found some debris in it and therefore didn't drink the offered sake. Only went due to location convenience.

The Sat/Sun Roast Beef special ramen was v tasty!
The bubble-tini (bubble tea cocktail) of the day (they had two actually along with a staple) Hot Toddy was a pleasant surprise - the lemonyness went well with my rich-brothy noodles.
Not too noisey; lively atmosphere for a good catch up with friends.
The staff were fantastic, friendly and helpful.
A lovely time overall!

Really enjoyed the tofu salad and gyoza. I wouldn't choose the spicy sesame tofu ramen dish again . The flavour would have been great for a side but too much for a big portion main like that as the sesame abdbpeanut overpowered the other elements if the dish so it became a bit one dimensional. Excited to try other dishes though as all fresh tasting and interesting.

Our waiter really knew his stuff and the meal was really tasty. The decor/branding is a little confused as the service/food has a "home cooked" feel but the menu/decor feels like a chain.

We ate here in a big group on a Saturday evening. The waiting staff were very good at handling a bunch of over active children. Service was good and the food was good value for money.

There were eight of us - some chose ramen, others, rice. Verdict: nice ramen, too much rice. The chicken wings and ribs sides we shared were very tasty. As for desserts, those who had the little moons were a little disappointed, and big brownie delight was quite enough to share between two after all of that rice.
