Uzumaki London to Open a “Bigger and Better” Anime-Themed Restaurant This Summer

Uzumaki is London’s first anime and manga themed restaurant and it opened its gates in High Holborn in late 2020 to become an instant success and a social media sensation.

In fact, the restaurant had been so successful that it outgrew its premises very soon.

As a result, they closed their doors last December to come up with a much bigger and better restaurant this Summer.


Watch video of the new venue here.

 The 2-story restaurant is just a 2-minute walk from Tottenham Court Road station and will be able to serve more than a hundred people.

On entering the venue, you’ll find yourself in an atmospheric intimate bar with bamboo chandeliers, hand-painted anime murals, and bar stools. This small area is for quick visitors popping in for a bubble tea and some snacks.

The main restaurant opens from that bar and will be able to accommodate around 100 people. The large airy dining area sits under an impressive pyramid-shaped glass ceiling. The walls are decorated with spectacular original hand-painted murals all around.

Downstairs there is a small cosy room perfect for intimate parties and events. This room will become available for booking later this year.

Even the toilets are anime and manga themed. Blooming cherry blossoms and black and white manga pages decorate the walls and even the ceiling. (I’m sure that even boys will feel the urge to snap a selfie in the loo. Wink!)

Is Uzumaki for Naruto Fans Only?


Uzumaki’s mission is to create a permanent space for anime and manga fans where they can meet, cosplay, and socialise all year long.

Everyone is welcome regardless of their favourite anime or manga.

 Whether you’re a demon slayer, a pirate wanting to be the Pirate King, a student from a hero academia, a Shinigami, a Pokémon trainer or even a titan, you can always feel at home at Uzumaki.


The Menu

There are a series of changes in Uzumaki’s new menu.

Apart from their signature Naruto Ramen Bowls, sushi trays and tailed-beasts bubble milk tea series, you’ll find a wider selection of Ramen, including halal Naruto Ramen, light side dishes, and plenty of toppings to choose from. Vegan options will also be available.

Is there any anime dessert you always wanted to try? Well, you might find it on the menu because from now Uzumaki will serve Japanese desserts straight from a range of well-known anime series.

Another new addition to the menu is alcoholic drinks.

From now, you can say ‘kampai’ with a cup of sake after a good ramen bowl. Uzumaki is going to serve different types of sake and Japanese beer.
