Came here with my family and it was absolutely terrible: First of all we were told that there was a shortage of chefs so the food would take a while to be ready, but we were willing to wait so we agreed to get a...More

This place is a blast of fresh flavor for Oxford. Lived in Japan and missed Tonkotsu ramen so much since moving back. The Tonkotsu is really very good indeed Although it's worth ordering the large one, as the portions are very small (unlike in Japan)...More

TLDR: Don't bother - a truly disappointing experience. There are always better options for ramen in Oxford. This was pretty bad overall. Not everything was terrible (hence the 2 star rating), but most of it was. In the interests of generosity, let's start with the...More

First time i eat Ramen so can't compare it to other sources. However my experience of it was a very positive one. Food was delicious and service was great. Also very friendly staff. All in all i would definitely recommend coming here.

An interesting menu. Service not the best....we sat at the bar and could see the food sitting there waiting to be taken to tables. We enjoyed the salmon sashimi, but the first soft shelled crab was nearly cold (they brought a second much better and...More

We went here on the England World Cup night, and I suspect most of the staff might have been at home watching it. The remaining staff valiantly, but unsuccessfully tried to run the place. Weird bun offer on a Monday where you buy one and...More

Their noodles never fails their good standards. Comes fairly quickly, no waiting around wondering if your food is coming or not. They do this fancy Japanese announcing drum thing to welcome you as you get seated which is nice and funky. Waiters are fairly good,...More
