Why we love it

Ramen Ya is as close to authentic Tokyo as you're going to find in Bristol. Heavily condensated windows obscure the restaurant's interior from the outside, which on a cold winter's evening is a welcome sight. Stepping inside the restaurant the first thing you see is a big broth-filled soup kettle where the steam emanates from. Paper lanterns adorn the ceilings gifting the shop a delightful glow, which certainly hands itself to the wholesome food they serve. The Ramen comes in 3 different forms, Tonkotsu, Shoyu and Spicy Seafood, all of which come with an assortment of classic ramen toppings such as Black Fungus, Crispy Shallots, Bean Sprouts and a perfectly Soft Boiled 'Shoyu' egg. From the range of non noodle soup based options, Gyoza are crispy on the outside and tasty inside, while the steamed Bao buns really take a star turn. Despite being a relative newcomer into the buzzing Gloucester Road foodie scene, Ramen Ya has really hit the ground running and is certainly a must for all Bristol based japanophiles (shinnichi).

Both ramen dishes we tried were great, and the Char Siu buns too! A hot sake was a welcome break from the cold weather outside.


Really amazing ramen, best in bristol, i've been loads before so it was good to see a deal on here for it.
