I got here semi-frequently as it's near my office and the turn around is always quite fast. Food is always very good. I like the ramen soups - a nice selection. The sushi is also good. Always happy to return.

I'm a huge fan of all sorts of things noodle, and this certainly wasn't a disappointment! The Tantanmen Ramen absolutely rocks! A delicious, steaming bowl of lovliness. The surroundings are very ordinary, the service pretty average, it's the food that stands out for me.

Been here several times over the years. The food is great, good portions too. Just be aware it can be busy at peak times and you might queue out the door (not much fun in winter!)

Ideally located for a trip to the neighbouring Curzon cinema, Hare and Tortoise seemed a perfect place for pre movie noodles. Clearly a very popular place that was busy on a Wednesday evening. Sadly it took me longer to get a menu from a waiter...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

As someone said.. the place is small and the tables are very close, there is a little more space in the inner room. I would suggest calling first and asking them to hold a table where wheelchair can be placed
