For proper Ramen in and out of London, it has to be Tonkotsu.

What started as a Saturday night pop-up in the city quickly became a fully-fledged British institution, showcasing the finest Ramen from all around Japan. Over a decade on and Tonkotsu has branches in London and beyond. Over in Kentish Town, their quirky restaurant is always a favourite with diners. Comfy, relaxed and always full of happy noodle slurpers, this branch encourages you to enjoy Ramen your way, be it on a communal booth or at a bistro table in the midst of the action.

Founded by Ken and Emma in 2011, Tonkotsu has gone from strength to strength in the capital. In the early days, the dynamic duo was making 400 gyozas every Friday night in time for Saturday suppers. Now they’ve got some extra pairs of hands to bring their pork, prawn and shiitake gyozas to life. They’re the perfect prelude to a hot bowl of noodles!

But what makes their ramen so special? Cooked for a split 32 seconds, their homemade noodles can be found swimming in all kinds of rich broths. From chicken, konbu and shiitake, pork and miso, these ramen are quite unlike anything you’ll else find. Studied and perfected for years, Ken and Emma are the tastebuds behind each and every bowl. And with katsu curries and noodle salads on the menu too, Tonkotsu always delivers the goods.
