Shoryu Go, it was because this is the only ramen "specialised" outlet that packed it as takeaway.
I'd ordered 4 ramens and some buns, but when I got home I realised that one of the ramens hadn't been packed. I called them and they said that unfortunately, I would have to come back to the store either to get the money returned on my card or to pick up a fresh ramen to replace the one that had got left out. I told them I would only be back in the area after a week and they said that would not be a problem.
When I returned after a week the manager refunded the money on my card AND offered me a complimentary ramen for the trouble. Which I unfortunately had to decline as I had a lunch appointment elsewhere and couldn't be carrying a takeaway bag to the other places on my agenda.
Yesterday, we wanted a quick snack before heading to the Haymarket Theatre and I immediately thought of their buns. Since it was early and Shoryu Go is a small place (They have a few canteen style seats - about 10) and it was on our way, I hoped for quick service and yummy food.
We just focussed on the gyoza and the buns. The pork gyoza (£7 - 6 pieces) are much better than the chicken gyoza (£7 - 6 pieces) IMHO and if you have them to eat in, they fry them in a pan so they get all joined together in a very pretty lacy design.
Their buns (£4.50 per piece) are absolutely amazing. We tried the chicken karaage, pork belly and salmon tempura and I'm hard pressed to decide which was my favourite.
Loved the yuzu drink (£3.50) too, a nice change from regular lemonade.
Shoryu doesn't offer my favourite Ramen in London, that honour goes to Kanada-Ya and Bone Daddies, but they are very good and they offer takeaway (only at this outlet)
There are some offers that discount your bill if you order particular combinations or based on the days of the week, so do see what the offer of the day is.
