About Ramen Dayo!
Ramen Dayo started off in 2016, as a ‘yatai’ ramen cart in Gordon St Lane. It quickly gained popularity, and received a 10/10 review from Joahnna Blythman in the Sunday Herald & was a mentioned as a place of interest when visiting Glasgow by the New York Times. In July 2017 we opened our first full restaurant in Queen St, and the following year expanded to Ashton Lane, in the West End of Glasgow.
Our mission is to create an authentic ramen dining experience, using only high quality ingredients to produce the best tasting ramen in the UK at a competitive price. Consistency, attention to detail and pride in every dish served is central to our success.
Ramen Dayo strives not only to create the best tasting, most authentic ramen outside of Japan, but also to translate ramen culture to Scotland - where it was sorely lacking before we started. From the food and surroundings, to the service, atmosphere and mentality of our staff.
Great food and service
Amazing service (and brilliant craic!) as always from Karen and Nadia. Food superb, as per the norm! See you soon <3 Much love!
So good! Thanks.
Best Japanese food I've had since moving back from Japan!
Thank you for your kind review! We look forward to seeing you again soon, RD x
Great food and lovely staff! Thanks :)
Understand that Covid has affected your usual music in the background. A shame and hope it won't last forever. A bit of David Sylvian only makes the ramen better
Glad you enjoy our music as much as we do! Look forward to serving you with David Sylvian playing again soon. Many thanks, RD x
Came down from Stirling with my daughter to try the food and we weren’t disappointed. Very warm welcome, a good bit chat and great food. We’ll be back. Ps - Gotta add an egg...a texture and taste sensation 👍
Really lovely super chatty dude serving 😀
Glad you love Charlie as much as we do! Thank you for the review and hope to see you soon, RD x
Food is always fantastic, service very friendly
This was the second time we had visited Ramen Dayo and we loved every minute. Quick, friendly service and amazing food. We'll almost certainly make it a regular place for dinner.
Thank you for your kind review! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best, RD x
I attend this restaurant regularly and the food is always delicious. I recently attended with my family who don't typically eat Japanese cuisine and they were all thoroughly impressed by both the food and the service. We are all excited to eat here again.
Thank you for your kind review! We look forward to having you and your family again soon. Best, RD x
As always great food. Staff were very nice. First time going after COVID and safety measures were good.
We're so glad you enjoyed your meal and felt safe with our COVID-19 restaurant measures. Hope to see you again soon! RD x
We were in Glasgow for the weekend, and with coronavirus most places were nearly fully booked up, but we managed to grab a table at ramen Dayo. It was a stab in the dark as it was our first trip to Glasgow, but this place was amazing! It’s really quite small, but they still manage to maintain social distancing just fine. I think there are 5 tables in the whole restaurant, so the atmosphere is lovely, as it’s never noisy. The food is amazing. I’m a vegetarian, so I had vegetarian tantanmen, veggie gyoza and a bamboo side salad. Definitely the best vegetarian ramen I’ve ever had, super full of flavour. The gyoza were lovely and I chose the bamboo over the seaweed salad at the servers recommendation and she was right! It was really good. My partner had pork tonkotsu, the deep friend chicken side and some yuzu and black sesame ice cream for dessert. He also thought his tonkotsu was the best he’d ever had, and he’s still talking about the black sesame ice cream today! The drinks were also really nice - a Japanese twist on a lot of classics. The service was really quick and attentive and the servers made us feel safe. The only drawback I can think of is that the space might not be wheelchair accessible (unless they have a lift in the back of the building or in the adjoining bar, but I would double check if you are booking and have access needs). It’s so good I would hate for anybody to miss out - although I think they also now do takeout!
Thanks for taking the time to leave such a kind and detailed review! We’re so glad you enjoyed your meal and look forward to having you again soon. Best wishes, RD x
Amazing, fantastic, awesome and outstanding!
We're so glad you enjoyed your meal at Ramen Dayo! See you again soon. RD x
Food was fantastic. Only tried Ramen Dayo for the first time around a month ago and couldn't wait to come back. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant itself is small but this only adds to its charm and creates a cosy atmosphere. The food was outstanding, no doubt won't be long again until I next visit. The staff were excellent, joking away and add to the overall experience of the restaurant. Couldn't recommend it enough.
Thank you for taking the time to leave such a kind review! We're so glad you enjoyed your time at Ramen Dayo!, and look forward to seeing you again soon. RD x

Ramen was the best and only one, would give the service 5 stars if the staffs, including the cheif, could wear masks indoor all the time without taking them off and talking to each other.

The server was very nice, polite, and cheery. She managed well dealing with the complications of no shows, big tables, and people showing up minus booking. Will be back again soon.
