Shoryu Ramen is one of the most reliable restaurants in London to get a big, comforting bowl of noodles. The standard pork tonkotsu here is very good, and the quality of the noodles and broth is always consistent - however, we can’t vouch for the pork buns and karaage fried chicken, which you can safely skip. Their restaurant at Liverpool Street is good for a quick lunch or a weeknight catch-up with a friend.
