"The management at Shoryu insist that their food is 100 per cent authentic, prepared by a chap born and raised in Hakata. I'm sure for the south Japan locals, it's the last word in ramen paradise. For some of us, I'm afraid it remains an acquired taste." READ REVIEW

"I enjoyed this so much more than the Wag sophistication, the minimal etiquette of sushi restaurants, with their laughable expense and regrettable clientele — the aimless international, the crookedly commercial and the coarsely available." READ REVIEW

"There's a forest of beansprouts to negotiate before you get to the good stuff: papery nori that faints into the broth; wood ear mushrooms; strips of red ginger. The piri piri version has a cough-making belt of chilli." READ REVIEW

"Run by the same people as the Japan Centre across the road, Shoryu is an authentically Japanese experience. They've even shipped in a chef from Hakata, the Japanese district best known for the tonkotsu ramen that Shoryu specialises in." READ REVIEW
