An authentic slice of Japan has arrived in West End; this is Ramen Dayo.
This ramen heaven is like walking into a cosy cabin. With wooden panelling covering the walls and dainty lanterns hanging from the ceiling, it’s warm and informal. Posters and trinkets from the showa-era in Japan adorn the walls, and it's like you've stepped back to a scene from a 1950s Japanese movie. This is much more than a restaurant; it’s a cultural experience!
As the name suggests, there is Ramen aplenty, from the collagen-rich tonkotsu and tantanmen, to the lighter chicken and veggie ramen. If that doesn’t fill your boots, juicy gyoza dumplings should do the trick or add some crunch to proceedings with their fresh edamame beans!
Step towards the bamboo-clad bar for a refreshing Asahi or Sapporo beer. Alternatively, there is an extensive range of Japanese soft drinks, gins and whiskies on offer and if you want to keep it seriously Japanese, you can’t go wrong with a bottle of sake!
