Shoryu Ramen set to open Shoreditch site

Shoryu Ramen is to open a site in Shoreditch, London, next month, the 11th in the group.

The 40-cover site will offer the group's familiar menu of Hakata tonkotsu ramen, Shoryu buns, cocktails and sake.

Located on Great Eastern Street, the new restaurant has been designed by Blenheim Design, with counter bars, high tables and a ramen bar where guests can watch the chefs at work.

Shoryu Ramen was founded by Japan Centre chief executive Tak Tokumine. In February he sold a 40% stake in the business to Toridoll Holdings Corporation for £7m with a view to using the funds to speed up the roll out of the brand.

Tokumine said: "This is a really exciting new opening for us in an area that has long been a key part of the vibrant and exciting London food scene. This new site will feature an impressive theatre-style ramen cooking bar that will really get our Shoreditch customers hungry and will be the perfect pit stop for late night noodles."

In addition to the Shoreditch site, there are eight Shoryu Ramen restaurants in London, one in Manchester, and a ramen bar in Fukuoka, Japan.

A 12th Shoryu Ramen site is set to open in Oxford in October in the new Westgate Centre.
