Shoryu Ramen is to open its first Manchester restaurant this summer as the group ramps up its expansion plans.

The site will feature an alfresco dining area, open kitchen and mini dining ‘pods’ for smaller groups.

Shoryu’s CEO Tak Tokumine told BigHospitality last year that he was planning to open three restaurants in the city.

The group will also launch its fifth London restaurant in Covent Garden​ in early summer, complete with a bar and ‘intimate’ sake lined dining area.

Tokumine said: “UK noodle culture has really become more sophisticated in recent years. As the British market has become more accustomed to noodles, we're able to introduce very specific dishes, such as Hakata tonkotsu ramen, for those looking for the real deal.

“I want to make sure everyone can experience real flavours, real dishes on their doorstep. It was also important for me to create restaurants with authenticity, which is why many of the key staff are family members and are originally from Japan”.

Since launching Shoryu Ramen in 2012 Tokumine has opened restaurants in Regent Street, Soho, Kingly Court​ and the Broadgate Circle development​, as well as Shoryu Go - a tonkotsu ramen take-out bar on Air Street.

Shoryu has also been offered a site in Oxford’s Westgate Shopping Centre, which is currently being redeveloped to open in 2017.

Tokumine opened a sister udon house concept, Ichiryu,​ on New Oxford Street this year.
