We have been to Tampopo a few time but not for a year or so. We were really looking forward to this meal and service was to its usual slick and efficient manner. Food was served quickly, however, I was amazed by the portion sizes...More

Brought here by our daughter for lunch at 1:00pm. Very noisy. Got a table area for 3, ordered drinks and food. Came reasonably quickly, great ginger beer, but disappointed by the Beef Rendong, too gristly and chewy. Spoilt my meal.

The food here is tasty and the portions are reasonable. Spent about £12 on dumplings and pork belly rice. The service is also really fast. Good alternative to Wagamama etc and a little bit cheaper.
