GOGYO was orignally founded by Shigemi Kawahara, the internationally renowned “Ramen King” of IPPUDO fame, in 2003. With stores in Kyoto, Tokyo, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Hong Kong, Surry Hills marks the 6th location for the brand. GOGYO Surry Hills is a casual-chic Japanese ramen bar and dining space that offers guests the opportunity to “start with drinks, taste a few ‘tsumami,’ and end with ramen.”
GOGYO Surry Hills offers a wide selection of contemporary a la carte dishes designed to lead up to or complement the specialty ramen selection. Items from the a la carte kitchen range from shared snacks to sashimi dishes as well as robata grilled mains. GOGYO offers Kogashi-style ramen which involves a charring technique to bring out extremely fragrant and bittersweet results that can only be tasted in our establishments. Classic ramen as well as a vegetarian option are also available to cater to different preferences.
Designer Paul Kelly has created a contemporary ‘wa’ enclave for GOGYO that comfortably accommodates 80 people within bustling Surry Hills. Details have been painstakingly considered for the interior: everything from the colourful retro ramen bowls, to the elegant glassware, to traditional Japanese baskets to place belongings in. Guests can choose from ambient table top dining or watch the theatre of the making of Kogashi-style ramen from counter stools.
