Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Seto is a small family run Japanese restaurant in Camden Town. It is a rare place in London where you can have a bowl of rustic and homely ramen similar to the ones you will find at diners (worker's cafe equivalent) in Japan. We had shoyu ramen and vegetarian ramen. All ramen noodles are £9 during lunch hours (including the one with extra pork chashu), but a boiled egg will cost extra £1. We asked for our noodles to be cooked harder. The noodle had nice chew and nostalgic 'old school' and comforting ramen noodle flavour. The vegetables on top of my veg ramen were fresh and cooked perfectly, finished in thick starchy sauce which gave a unique creamy texture to my soup which I liked. The only problem with my soup was that although it started off hearty and tasty, it begun to taste more and more like a packet soup towards the end, which by the way was not the case with my partner's non-veg soup. As for the soy based pork chashu ramen, the chashu was tasty and the egg was cooked and marinated perfectly keeping the yolk creamy and golden. The building is old and the décor is far from modern or fancy, but the standard of cleanliness was high throughout the restaurant from the sauce pots on our table to the toilet. Service was on point, attentive and polite. 10% service charge will be added to your bill. £9 for a bowl of ramen in London is good. But as far as the vegetarian ramen is concerned, the overall value is not much better than some other places where you can have a veg ramen with an egg and tofu for £12. All in all, Seto is an unassuming little hidden gem where you can experience the comforting flavour of ramen from down town Tokyo, or if you like, a staff canteen nationwide Japan.

Excellent food, polite service and good value for money. We were virtually the only non Japanese people in the restaurant, which speaks volumes.

Book ahead for a Friday or Saturday! Don’t expect fancy decor because that’s not what this place is about. There are lots of Japanese people eating here which is always a good sign. You cannot miss the gyozas and spicy tuna rolls! Really good value.

Found this place by way of "Top ramen in london" list and booked for a Ramen-mad Aunts birthday on a Friday night. The food was incredible! We took a chance and ordered a lot (a lot) of starters and shared amongst us - nothing disappointed. The menu is quite simple and had both English and Japanese - we took a chance and ordered a wide variety without really knowing much. Such a nice difference from the Japanese chains. Our favourites: Fried Octopus Kimuchee Tempura (Various) - the salmon was incredible! All of the gyoza - freshly made, hot, delicious Our only bugbear was that a few dishes were forgotten about and took ages to come out once reminded. The beef teriyaki was totally worth the wait. Go, go, go! Great food, great vibe, ok prices.

I’ve been visiting Seto for the past few years now and it has never once disappointed! Food is always at an amazing standard, quick service and comfortable atmosphere. The simple decor gives the restaurant a homey, rustic feel. Seto also has a LOT of Japanese patrons which is of course a very good indicator of this establishment’s menu and authenticity! Highly recommend the Pork Gyozas and Chicken Teriyaki Don. Really good prices for great food too - definitely won’t break the bank!

This is a place in Camden I am happy to give money to as its not a chain, its run by a lovely granny and her family and is always welcoming. This place doesn't have to be all posh inside to be great. You will find many Japanese businessmen and familys come here which is a good sign. Service can be slow in here with it being busy and minimal staff but thats the only thing I could comment on. I will be going back here many more times. Reccomendation: Please start doing Yakitori. One thing lacking here!

I went to this place with a friend of mine. Both of us ordered a bowl of ラーメン (Ramen) and I took the Shouryo Ramen. Good value for money, because it was really taste it and the price is £8. In addition, the service was fast and the staff was kind and friendly with us. The place is small and cozy. I can recommend this restaurant!

We visited the restaurant (4 people) as we had heard good reviews - we were very disappointed. Whilst the sushi is of good quality, the service was dreadful (the waiter was rude and didn't make eye contact once) and it is very over priced. Chicken broth with cheap noodles (they looked and tasted like Maggi noodles) costing £7.00 Th female toilets are revolting - smelt awful and there was lots of mould everywhere. One tile is loose on the floor and when stepping on it - water (smelt more like urine) came up and all over my shoe. The sink was filthy. This put us off the food immediately - we asked for the hygiene rating but was ignored (it is no where to be seen) We spent £90 and came out hungry and feeling ripped off.
