“Great food and service ”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Really good food - sushi and udon especially. Super polite service too. Quite small portions for the price and the downstairs restaurant a little tatty but the food and service make up for it.

“Great Japanese in the city - amazing Udon”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

This restaurant isn't the most appealing from the outside but does the most amazing fresh Udon. It's as good as Koya in Soho but without the habitual queues. The Bankara Udon is what I usually go for - super fresh, handmade noodles with teriyaki chicken, prawn & vegetable tempura, half an egg and vegetables.
Their sushi is also great quality, made by a proper Japanese sushi chef. And sign of a proper Japanese restaurant they will also have a list of specials of seasonal dishes.
Service is also super-polite

“Great lunchtime spot in the City.”
Reviewed 15 June 2013

This is the second time I enjoyed a lovely lunch at the Ribon. It is the perfect place for a light lunch (they do also serve food after lunch) in the middle of a busy day. There are a few tables on the ground floor of the restaurant and many more on the lower floor. The staff is very welcoming and the service fast and efficient. There is a different special meal every day of the week for £10 which normally includes sushi rolls/sashimi or soup along with a main meal. The portions are just right and the prices, although not cheap, reasonable for what you can expect in central London.

On my last visit I enjoyed the Chicken Teriyaki, served with a side salad and sticky rice, which I would recommend. There are plenty of other options on the menu. I would certainly return to try more.
