    Perfect spot for a warm winters day in this case it was pouring with rain. I was able to to get a nice warm table after a large group had just left (I did book) and the staff were attentative and polite and ensured I had everything I needed from warm sake to the delicious bowl of pork belly ramen to the extra mushrooms. One of my favourite winter spots to come to, even when i'm alone.

    Cute little spot just off chapel. The staff were lovely and very attentive. The cocktail list is unique and we're delicious. Ordered Ramen with gyoza and bao buns, everything was great! will definitely go back!

    Table of four: We tried both entrees and mains from throughout the menu and found the food to be delicious. Of particular note was the mushroom nigiri platter and the passionfruit cider. Unfortunately some of the tables upstairs are on the smaller side - like larger side tables. Both men with long legs and women of average height in flats found them a bit awkward, having to either sit far from the table or try to awkwardly tuck a knee under the table. The team were nice and were able to accommodate our request to move to larger table.

    Great service, food and atmosphere. Standout for me was thr miso based ramen with pork belly but we all had our own favourites. Also, really accommodating and patient staff who helped with every request and question.

    Food is pretty delicious - don’t get me wrong What is most disappointing about this place They asked us to leave after 1.5 hours Note - there was no disclaimer on my booking that this was a 1.5 hour sitting (I double checked)

    Food was amazing. The broth was good! Wish we had been given more time with the starter before the mains came out. Other than that, the ramen was to die for and I'll come back for that

    A hidden gem tucked away just off the chaotic Chapel St. Cosy and cute ambiance. The ramen is big enough to share between 2 people and they’ll happily split the served into 2 bowls for you.

    A wonderful find this quirky Japanese restaurant. Really enjoyed their take on Japanese tradition vs modern Asian.. So wonderful to know that the kitchen is run by authentic Japanese. Will be back !!

    Food was good with wide choice of ramen but a bit limited elsewhere. Quirky decor with seats a bit uncomfortable as no back. Service was prompt and helpful. Good value for money

    Fabulous service. Welcoming & helpful with questions & special requests. Amazing Ramen. Loved the ambiance, so cozy, with fab music but not too loud. (For once) Can’t wait to return.

    Ramen was a bit bland and overpriced. We love the salmon sashimi though.

About the restaurant

Yuko not Yoko

Not to be confused with John Lennon's Yoko, Yoku restaurant is a delicious Japanese venue that's ideal for chillaxed dining.

The restaurant/bar is owned and run by a few school mates and raman master Tomoya Kawaski - trust us, these guys really know what they're doing.

The decor is reminiscent of a Japanese ski lodge and the thing to have is the ramen. They also do killer bento boxes which are perfect for a quick work lunch plus delicious Japanese-style tapas in the evenings. Pair your meal with some delicious sake and you're laughing!

Best dish: ramen.
