3. Ippudo 3 Central St Giles Piazza, London, WC2H 8AG

With countless locations all around the world, Ippudo made many expats rejoice when it finally opened in London. Despite the fact it's a chain, it still delivers on quality taste and service with a large menu featuring tonkotsu ramen, veggie ramen, and more.

4. Kanada-Ya 64 St Giles High St, London, WC2H 8LE

This Japanese chain has a solid foothold in London, thanks to keeping things short and sweet, with only a few differences in ingredients for its tonkotsu broths. The main catch here is that it doesn't include its signature hanjuku, eggs which you would be a fool not to add on. They will rock you’re world so hard. Another cool thing here is that you can order how you like the noodles: extra firm, firm, regular, or soft.

5. Sasuke 32 Great Windmill St, London, W1D 7LR

This Soho ramen spot is one of the best in the city. Its soy-based shoyu ramen is departure from the richer styles and leaves you without the food coma that can happen at other places. The best part is its interactive qualities, allowing you to get seriously involved with the amount of broth you want in your mouth.

6. Ittenbari 84 Brewer St, , London, W1F 9UB

This place that serves ramen that doesn't rhyme with "fwagamamas": Ittenbari, freshly landed in Soho courtesy of the man behind Osaka's vaunted Ryukishin. Sporting a similar spartan-but-cozy vibe, the new joint's menu actually goes well beyond the literally-just-noodle-soup approach of both the original restaurant, and pitiably stocked dorm kitchens across the land.

7. Kirazu 47 Rupert St, Soho, W1D 7PF

Kirazu quietly wows its patrons, and has been doing so for awhile now. Granted its miso ramen is pretty spectacular, it’s the daily specials that keep people coming back with loose-waisted trousers and high expectations. Pork belly, sesame, extra spice -- it's all pretty tastetacular.
