In addition to the authentic ramen, chicken karaage delicious Japanese fried chicken and gyoza dumplings, Tonkotsu Birmingham will serve katsu curry, perfect for a mid-shop pit stop.

Japanese and British lagers and ales will be on offer along with house cocktails and wines. All dishes will be available for take away.

Business partners and friends Kensuke and Emma opened Tonkotsu Soho in 2012 after hunting around London for a decent bowl of ramen and not being able to find one.

The founders, Ken and Emma, believe in keeping things simple and having a few dishes done very well alongside house cocktails, Japanese and British beers and a couple of great wines.
