Good hot delicious food served slickly and for a reasonable cost. Good choice of beers and wine. There is nothing fancy about this place and it soon got very busy. The teriyaki chicken ramen was excellent, but the only down side is the food does not all come in order or together. I will be going back again to try... More

I've visited Mr Taro's two restaurants in Soho no less than a hundred times but I moved out of London some time ago and it had been over a year since I last eat there. The food continues to be agreeable and, although the cooks are not Japanese (or even asian in some cases), the two restaurants are frequented by... More

Dropped in here after the good reviews on here. Nothing exceptional. Good cooked dishes, the japanese curry, miso soup, noodles etc are all good. Unfortunately the sushi isn't the best. Would recommend if you are after hot japanese cuisine.

Returned to Soho after a few years working in another area. Decided to have an early dinner. I love Ramen so was a no brainer what i would order. Spicy Beef Ramen. Was actually amazing. Tasted so good with an Ashahi beer. Quick friendly efficient service. Will go back as soon as I can. Loved it.

The original Taro in Brewer street has now been my favourite for the last 10+ years. Whenever I have friends visiting London, I end up taking them to Taro and they all love it. Dumplings, noodle soup, rice box and sushi... YUM :D Friendly service, sometime a bit to fast but oh so nice. And Mr Taro himself is such... More

My friend and I had dinner at Taro last night. Great atmosphere and speedy service. Obviously doing well as there was a steady influx of people for a Tuesday night. I can't say that either of us are mega Japanese food experts but we greatly enjoyed our Gyoza, Katsu Curry, Tuna Rolls and Fried Shrimp. The restaurant serves a great... More

My friend and I went there for dinner during a weekday after a long day, we were hungry but we were out of inspiration as well so we went to the trusted Taro. We tend to share our food, so altogether we had a ramen, fried tofu, tariyaki beef, yakitori, gyozas and a couple of beers. The food is always... More

great service particularly from Taro (yes it is him on the front of the menu!) who set up this small chain many moons ago. they always seem to find space for you even if it the small space seems to be full. great for a quick lunch during work or for a catch up evening meal over a few beers....

When I lived in London I started a hunt for the best sushi restaurant in town (for both quality and price) and one day I found this incredible place. I would stop by the restaurant everytime I could, for lunch and dinner. I would bring all my friends to demonstrate them how sushi is done right. Now I don't live... More
