Ramen, Sushi, Gyoza, Yakisoba, no matter what your order is it's hard to go wrong with some freshly prepared Japanese food.

With so many fantastic restaurants in Glasgow, it can be hard to choose, but we've rounded up our top eight (in no particular order) according to TripAdvisor ratings and reviews from Glasgow Times Staff.

Time to get practising those chopsticks skills.

Nippon Kitchen - West George street

Not only does Nippon Kitchen have an amazing menu that caters to all sorts of different dietary requirements, but it's also housed in a beautiful Grade A listed building in the city centre.

We suggest trying their Teriyaki dishes which come with a deliciously thick, rich sauce.

Sapporo Teppanyaki - Ingram street

A great choice if you like a bit of drama with your dinner.

Expertly trained chefs will prepare dishes like Tuna Tataki or Miso Glazed Aubergine right in front of your table on a flaming hot plate.

It's much more than a gimmick though with over 900 excellent TripAdvisor reviews praising their freshly prepared Teppanyaki dishes.

Ichiban - Queen Street

Ichiban on Queen street is the perfect place to go for some top-notch noodles after a busy day of shopping.

Known for offering dishes like classic Katsu Curry or Chahan in generous portions one Tripadvisor used said: "Great quality Japanese food and speedy service. The ideal place for a quick, good value lunch in the city centre. Would definitely recommend the seafood yakisoba!"


Temaki - Hope street

This tiny city centre restaurant is found opposite Glasgow Central Station. 

If you fancy a twist on a classic then why not order their 'Sushi Burrito' which can be ordered with lots of different fillings from Crispy Fried Salmon to Spicy Mushroom.

Pickled Ginger - St Vincent street 

A favourite with Finnieston diners, Pickled Ginger serve a delightful fusion of Japanese and Korean dishes.

Our reporter called their Prawn Katsu 'quite possibly the best I've ever had'.

Ramen Dayo - Ashton Lane

If you fancy a noodle-filled night out in the city's West End then look no further than Ramen Dayo on Ashton Lane.

The restaurant was opened by owner Paul after he found himself unsatisfied with the lack of dedicated Ramen Shops in Scotland after 12 years of living in Tokyo.

They said: "We take pride in following traditional methods of preparing our ramen from scratch.

"We put the time and care into preparing each bowl of our ramen, so you can enjoy it quickly."

Wudon - Great Western road

Wudon is an Asian fusion restaurant on Great Western Road combining Japanese, Thai and Chinese cuisines.

Run by a team of two sisters who say they were inspired by their mum's cooking, dishes like their Sweet Chilli broccoli in Tempura batter come highly recommended. 

One Tripadvisor user said: "We've been eating at Wudon for 10 years and we travel from the southside to get their sushi.

"I always comment on how consistent the quality is and the combination of flavours and textures is just irresistible."

Nanakusa - Sauchiehall street

A sister restaurant to Nippon Kitchen, Nanakusa on Sauchiehall street has been open since 2007 delighting city centre diners with freshly prepared and authentic Japanese food.

Why not try a perfectly portioned bento box if you're struggling to choose from their extensive menu.
