Review: Tampopo is a chain restaurant in the mould of Wagamama, but I would put it a notch above that. I visited Bristol's branch on a wet February Monday evening and it was nicely busy - the open kitchen also provides noise and spectacle. Tampopo serves 'pan Asian' dishes, of course many of them are meat based. But they do have good veggie or vegan options and serve Asahi beer which is vegan. I had veggie Tempura, absolutely spot on crispy batter around meltingly soft choice of vegetables; followed by tofu ped makham with udon noodles, filling and delicious. A buzzing atmosphere and attentive service added to the experience. Not particularly cheap, but the portions could easily feed two! Particularly good I suppose if you want to share a meal with meat-eating friends.
