Gyoza Bar

I used the TimeOut offer at Gyoza Bar which was great value for £16. This included a bao board and a cocktail. Gyoza Bar opened recently in Covent Garden after its success in other foodie cities across the globe. Small restaurant, minimalist décor and good service. As the name suggests, the dumplings are the star feature here so I was quite surprised that the selection of other dishes, such as the ramen noodle soups, was greater than the gyoza. A good choice of veggie friendly dishes. I really enjoyed the bao bun and dumplings but I was disappointed with the ramen noodle soup.
