A ramen specialist on Great Russell Street, Uzumaki is the perfect spot to head to with the anime fan in your life. The whole restaurant is anime-themed, with a huge colourful mural painted on the wall, references to Naruto on the menu, and a gift shop at the front with figurines from popular shows. Plus the ramen is pretty great too. Huge bowls of piping hot, beefy gyuniku broth with egg ramen (or udon noodles), topped with your choice of anything from enoki mushrooms and menmma bamboo, to chashu pork and wagyu beef slices. The spacious dining room has plenty of benches for groups, as well as sharing tables, so it's perfect for a post-work ramen whether you're alone or in a group. The prices can stack up quickly, but the bowl is big enough to keep you very full for the foreseeable future.
