Kikkoman is Japanese-style soy sauce, so it’s a bit lighter than Chinese Dark soy sauce, a bit heavier than light. I have used it for years as it was recommended in a Ken Hom book. I use it in Chinese-style cooking too, but it’s not a direct substitute. Lee Kum Kee is a good brand for Chinese-style soy sauces

Great for dippin ballz
That is cheap
Reviews of this are iffy and question whether it is indeed Dark Soy sauce. Also slightly cheaper (£9.94 including delivery Prime/Non-Prime) though a marketplace seller.

Whilst this is arguably a reasonable price for Kikkoman, I personally prefer the Lee Kum Kee brand which is typically available at £4/l from most of the big supermarkets
Good deal. But watch out. Dark and light soy sauces are used differently on dishes.

Its funny the comments say this is more like light soy than dark.
Also, much cheaper (£6.45) from the Wing Yip Chinese Supermarket if you have one near by (wingyip.com/b00…tml) - or if you need a lot of it, 2 bottles delivered for £18.08

Seems it's not 'Dark' soy as Kikkoman don't make such a thing in the UK. It's just 'Soy' (neither light nor dark): kikkoman.co.uk/sen…qs/
Not cheap-
£8 in costco,
£6-8 in most Asian supermarkets.
Salty! In a good way
The Lee Kum Kee stuff is only £2 for 500ml in Tesco.
Stopped using it after Fukushima. Pity, had been using it for 20 odd years before that.The best....
This is not dark soy, dark soy is thicker in consistency. It is saltier than your average light soy, so you use less! Very good quality compared to cheap stuff. Got it for £6 when it was on discount at Costco.

I though that all Kikkoman sold in Europe made the Dutch factory?
Far prefer this type of naturally brewed soy sauce with its very short list of ingredients (their other ones are often only soya beans and salt, this one also has wheat). The cheap Chinese ones tend to add caramel, MSG, and other stuff. But I guess like the debate about natural peanut butter versus adulterated American style peanut butter, it is all a matter of taste.
Are you supposed to drink this by the pint or what?
If you do a lot of chinese cooking, the brands used in takeaways are Lee Kum Kim or Pearl River, both of which are significantly cheaper than this.

Eg:
amazon.co.uk/Pea…Q8/
amazon.co.uk/Pea…JW/

They're cheaper still (~£10 each) at your local chinese supermarket.

Kikkoman is Japanese and they don't have dark soy sauce like the Chinese do. Note that nowhere on the bottle does it say dark, so it is an Amazon listing mistake. Basically treat this like light soy.
Fantastic. Cheers op. Have some heat
