Our Story

Maki & Ramen was founded by Teddy Lee, our CEO. His journey began as a Chef, studying in a sushi academy in Tokyo, with an aim to introduce high-quality ramen and sushi to our local communities. With hard work, resilience, and a solid team, he founded our first Maki & Ramen in 2015. It is proudly standing today alongside our 7 other Asian restaurants, serving thousands of hungry customers each and every day.

As we extended our reach around the UK, Maki & Ramen’s objective is simple: to provide delicious, accessible, and high-quality Asian food to all our guests. We believe we can get there, one bowl, or one sushi plate at a time.

“Your journey, Our bowl!” We believe that good food is the food that you share with loved ones. Discover the true taste of Japan with the people you love and let the good times roll.

A Heartfelt Commitment

We’re determined to change perceptions, showcasing the diverse, accessible, and enjoyable nature of this cuisine. With around 40,000 customers served each month across our locations, we’re reminded of the strength of our community and the shared passion that propels us forward.

Here at Maki & Ramen, we go far beyond just being a Japanese restaurant chain; we’re a movement towards inclusivity in dining. We champion the joy and diversity of Japanese cuisine, fostering a sense of belonging with each dish we serve. 

We’re deeply grateful for the journey thus far and the incredible support from our dedicated team and loyal patrons, who are the beating heart of Maki & Ramen. Join us as we embark on this culinary adventure, where every bite is a celebration of flavour, community, and togetherness.
