Ribon

Squaremeal Review of Ribon ?

The waitresses are dressed in traditional garb, there’s Tokyo ‘J-Pop’ on the stereo, and handwritten specials such as grilled ox tongue supplement the menu – so you know that Ribon is the real oriental deal. ‘Big Ben’ bento boxes are tailored to the lunchtime crowd, while legions of Japanese businessmen are often ensconced here late into the evening, eating sushi and sashimi, knocking back shots of booze or diligently working their way through the phone book-sized selection of karaoke classics in the private rooms downstairs. The decor might be shabby, but you come here for the food, including grilled salted salmon belly, light-as-a-feather prawn tempura, sukiyaki prepared tableside or hotpots packed with wafer-thin pork leg in a fiery broth. Depending on the weather, round off with a shot of hot, cold or frozen saké.

I've had many Japanese meals in London, but I've never felt compelled to write a review, but the staff were so lovely I promised I would and I'm a man of my word.

The staff are really welcoming and the atmosphere warm and genuine. So if you are looking for Mayfair quality food but not at Mayfair prices, this is a real good find. The sushi was...

I've been a regular customer at ribon for just under a year now, I must say that the food and staff are lovely. I've had a party with my colleagues a few times, karaoke and lots of drinks. It's a very hospitable environment. As they just started a delivery service I am now able to collect food from my company house (Sumitomo BC), the service was surprisingly fast considering the distance between the restaurant and I. I recommend ribon to anybody who want to enjoy Japanese cuisine.
