    Sakuramen serves up ramen that will leave you floored. With some influence from Korean cuisine, the Chosun, which features roasted kimchi and bulgogi made from Angus ribeye, cannot be missed. Read more

    The music is a bit loud, but as the music selection is great (mainly 90s hits!) it's alright. Tasty gyozas, great ramens and mochi ice creams.

    Ramen, spicy buns, gyoza all wonderful but order a take away: music is impossibly loud + even when there is a visible Q, some selfish punters don't get off their chairs and leave once they finish

    The Tonkotsu Red Ramen is absolutely fantastic, great pork broth made with Berkshire pork belly chashu, kikurage, menma, green onion, kuro mayo, and nori.

    The hot teas, both citron and ginger are so, so good. Loved the steamed buns. Ramen still not *quite* as good as Toki, but the other things make up for it.

    Chasu Buns were a great starter and the Tonkatsu Ramen was excellent! Perfectly cooked noodles, fresh woodear mushrooms & delicious pork belly. 4/5 spicy is good if you have a decent heat tolerance.
