Rejuvenation of Great Queen Street continues with the arrival of Japanese Restaurant, Shoryu Ramen
17 February 2016
We are excited to announce the completion of a letting to Japanese restaurant Shoryu Ramen at 35 Great Queen Street, WC2, the main thoroughfare between Covent Garden and Kingsway. The restaurant chain, which appeared in the Michelin Guide in 2014 and 2015, has signed a 15 year lease to occupy the 1,500 sq ft unit which will be their fifth outlet in Central London.
Shoryu Ramen specialises in Hakata tonkotsu ramen (a style of ramen made with a thick, rich, white pork soup and thin, straight ramen noodles) from the Hakata district of Fukuoka city on the southern island of Kyushu, Japan. We are looking forward to seeing it open and will be the first in line to try what has been acclaimed by Time Out to be ‘ramen royalty'!
Shoryu Ramen will be a fantastic addition to Great Queen Street, which continues to rise in popularity thanks to the quality amenities being introduced, and complements other new dining offers that have recently opened in the immediate vicinity.
The deal follows the arrival of Barrafina, the tapas restaurant brand owned by Sam and Eddie Hart, which opened its third London restaurant just around the corner at 43 Drury Lane, WC2, at the end of last year and Farmstand, which offers healthy, ethically and sustainably sourced food in the unit next door at 42 Drury Lane, WC2, just a few weeks ago.
Richard Russell, Associate Partner at Farebrother said “The scale of UGLE’s holdings on Great Queen Street means there is a tremendous opportunity to shape a new retail and dinning offer, which complements what Capco has created at Covent Garden. Shoryu Ramen is the type of aspirational dining offer we are seeking to attract, and we are seeing strong demand from similar operators for the street.”
