A world famous ramen restaurant home to mouthwatering bowls of steaming noodles, IPPUDO also impresses with sake-centric cocktails and Japanese spirits.

IPPUDO, one of the world’s most renowned names in ramen, has
arrived in London, and is mesmerizing all who enter its doors with delicious
traditional Japanese noodles, cocktails, and sake. Founded in the 1980s in Japan, IPPUDO is so highly regarded
that they have opened over 80 stores in their native country alone. Their ramen
has been described by many as “cosmos in a bowl” due to the swirling mix of
savory broth, freshly-made noodles, and intriguing aromas, that combine to
produce a delicacy like nothing else. While ramen is as traditional as they
come in Japan, IPPUDO in London is smart and modern, with bright red fixtures –
most notably a playful display of plastic ramen spoons – stylishly contrasting
charcoal walls and dark woods.


Ramen is typically accompanied by a tipple, and IPPUDO offers a
stimulating selection of sakes, cocktails, and Japanese beer to do the trick in
London. The sakes are all handpicked, including smooth premium labels, a fun
sparkling version, and a sake served hot – perfect for when the weather outside
is on the chilly side. Sake features prominently in the cocktails on offer at
IPPUDO, with the Samurai – gin, sake, apple juice, lime – and the Maiko – sake,
creme de cassis, cranberry juice, and orange – being two of our favorites.
Japanese whisky and spirits like shochu and native fruit liqueurs also makes
appearances on the menu, making dinner and drinks at IPPUDO like nothing else
in London.
