Headed there for lunch on a Monday. This was the first time we tried Ippudo outside Japan. From the extensive menu, we opted for a tonkotsu-based and a aka-dashi (red miso sauce) based dish. Volume and speed of delivery were excellent. The taste was also very authentic. We only felt that the noodles could have been better. Nonetheless, this is as close as it gets to Japanese standards. It also shows in the fact that there were quite a lot of Japanese customers having lunch there; always a good sign when trying to judge a Japanese restaurant outside Japan. One negative aspect: dishes are too expensive even for Tokyo standards. It always astonishes us how eating out in London is more expensive than Tokyo.

Been here once and ordered a Tori Shoyu Ramen and a Hirata chicken bun.
That was really tasty. Next time i'll try other things
Waiters very nice.
It was quick for buns but a little slow for the ramen.

One of the quick and good ramen places in London. It is not too special, but reliable and pretty good quality. Service might be a bit off sometimes, as the service seems to forget about getting few things sometimes (and sometimes food comes out really slow and they forget your order), but overall it is good ramen.

Menu says soft boiled eggs... which is gooey yolk. The yolk of my egg arrived FROZEN and DEEP ORANGE / RAW. How disgusting... second yolk was also cold but seemed slightly more cooked. Ippudo London, you are ruining your world renowned reputation... lines @ Ippudo NY are out the door... which your competition Kanada-ya is showing you up across the street... I’ve eaten at 4 ippudos across the world and this was my least favorite.
