I know of Umi which I think is good. I'm purposely coming to Boro on Sunday specifically to go there for ramen. It's one of my favourite ramens in the country. He only sells it on Sunday and starts making it on Thursday. Or at least he used to.

Good to hear there is decent ramen somewhere at home. It's something I've fallen in love with in Chicago and would definitely miss when I returned otherwise!

Not been yet but had a few takeaways. The ramen is good.
Incidentally the restaurant was opened by a Chinese lad, my son knows him from Uni.

Would also like to know if it's worth giving it a go, closest I've came to a Japanese restaurant is Wagamama, so I'd be interested in trying something that wasn't a franchise.

Been open for years! Albeit in smaller premises, it used to be on the corner of Borough Road and Fairbridge Street, a lad I work with did all the graphics/menu design for the old place. Been twice, both times decent enough! The new place on linny road looks lovely!
Ah sorry didn’t realise it was the same place.

I was just told new Japanese opened on linthorpe road

I'm not sure that the restaurant is open on a Sunday, you'd best check first. Ramen is superb though.

Umi's is exceptional and my favourite restaurant at the moment. I'm so glad people are receiving it well.

Me and the Girlfriend usually open with salmon/cucumber sushi, chicken kaarage and duck skewers or lamb bao buns for our starters. Followed by her enjoying Chicken Katsu Curry and me faithfully sticking to the Pork Belly Tonkotsu Ramen which is divine. I wash it down with Asahi on draught.

Give it a try sometime anyone who hasnt been before!
