Part of the well-established Shoryu Ramen group, this Soho joint is larger than the nearby branch on Regent Street. The restaurant benefits from fun interiors which nod to the group’s Japanese heritage – there are white bamboo lamps in the window and a gong for welcoming guests, while the typically restrained decor features communal tables for dining and geometric artwork.
Shoryu Ramen Soho’s private dining room is well-suited to smaller gatherings, accommodating up to 16 guests for a seated dinner. Party guests dine from a set menu which will see them feast on three courses of classic Japanese fare. The offering features the group’s signature ramen alongside pillowy bao buns and sharing plates such as sushi and gyoza.
Meals finish with sweet treats including the likes of a matcha cheesecake made with stoneground matcha, or a fresh and zesty yuzu cheesecake. Drinks, meanwhile, feature eastern-style cocktails alongside a large selection of palate-cleansing teas, as well as rare and premium sakés. Shoryu Ramen Soho can also accommodate dietary requirements, with vegetarian options available.
The booking lasts for 2.5 hours and a small per-guest deposit is required. Thanks to its hyper-central location, casual style and warm service, Shoryu Ramen Soho makes for a great destination for an intimate corporate affair, with the venue being well suited to business dinners, working lunches or corporate presentations.
