Price Point: Mains from £10-£20

Filling bellies all over London with hot, comforting ramen, Tonkotsu has opened in Hackney.

In true Hackney style, this Tonkotsu branch has plenty of urban edge to satisfy the hipster and corduroy-clad locals. The brick ceiling plays host to exposed pipes...could you get any edgier?! The restaurant is long and narrow, affording it an intimate atmosphere.

There’s ramen for days! Choose from six types of ramen, like their signature tonkotsu ramen or their vegan yasai curry ramen. Then customise it to your taste with an array of add-ons like a seasoned egg, crab or pork belly. And if you don’t think that’ll fill you up, have a few pieces of gyoza on standby.

Accompany your Japanese feast with a bottle of the good stuff. Their wine list is short but carefully considered, but if you want an authentic experience, order in some Sake! Alternatively, keep it cool with a Kirin beer or a cocktail.

Wonderful food and very attentive staff, who took the time to explain the menu properly. The tonkotsu ramen was delicious, as was the chicken Kara-age!

Beautiful food! Everything homemade and staff very friendly and genuine. Also really helpful in suggesting sauces to go with gyoza and can amend the ramens to your taste. Would love to go back next time i’m In London! Also the ice cream sandwiches for dessert are fab.
