Born in London. Inspired by Tokyo.

 Delicious and nutritious Japanese street food.

Rainbo Food

Serving up the best gyoza and Japanese street food this side of Tokyo. We believe street food can be healthy as well as delicious and mix traditional Japanese recipes with our own personal influences in order to create dishes that are colourful, vibrant, tasty and good for you.

  • About

    Rainbo was the brain child of husband and wife Ben and Xochi and was part of the first wave of London's quality street food movement.

    After four years it was time to handover the chopsticks. Having both had an extreme obsession for gyoza since we can remember (including those of Rainbo since the very beginning!) and no longer fulfilled by our 9-5 desk jobs the opportunity to do what we love was impossible to turn down.

    Our mission is to spread the word, and the word is DUMPLINGS. Serving up traditional gyoza alongside our highly addictive house pickles and other dishes ranging from our miso yakitori skewers to our Japanese scotch eggs, this is Japanese Soul Food with our own personal stamp.

Street Food

This is where the journey began for Rainbo all those years ago and you can still find us across London at some of the capital's most well respected foodie markets. We're open 7 days a week at our permanent spot in Camden whilst also flipping dumplings from our iconic 1948 Ford Pick Up Truck throughout the city.

Private Events

As well as our famous street food, we also cater for private and corporate events of all shapes and sizes.

We have a variety of menus ranging from our traditional street food offering, to contemporary Japanese small plates and canapés and have been hired out for everything from weddings and birthdays to large corporate events, Christmas parties and club nights.


"We first started Leefest in 2006. Each year we've hand picked food traders to feed the crowd and keep the talent happy. Across three days I've never quite seen one vendor so unanimously loved as Rainbo did at the festival in 2016. Rainbo's food proved that festival food can be a real treat and always exceptional. Beyond the ridiculously tasty food it's also hugely beneficial for the event that the Rainbo team are so friendly, relaxed and proud of the meals they serve. It makes a real difference on site when you have people like this raising the quality of the festival experience for everyone."

Rich LeGate, Artist Liaison, Leefest (festival, 2016)

"We hosted a launch event to open The North Face's Urban Exploration pop-up store in London's Seven Dials, and wanted to cater for the evening in a fashion that made reference to the 'street' vibe so great street food was key. Rainbo was the perfect accompaniment to the evening; James and his team were brilliant and passionate about providing amazing street food."

"The Rainbo food truck: beloved for its delicious gyoza."

The Evening Standard, 2016

"Myself and the SANE Communications team really enjoyed working with Rainbo for our client's event. James responded to our initial enquiry within a few hours and Rainbo were able tailor their menu to our needs - which was hugely appreciated in the short time frame we were working with. The team arrived on site on time and throughout the event were super professional. The food was of course delicious and received a great response from our guests!"

"This is hands down the best festival food I have ever had!"
