Koya Bar

Koya Bar

This is the sister restaurant to the original Koya, which has sadly closed down. But Koya Bar is still going strong - even if it only seats 25 people. Expect some of the best Japanese udon noodles in town here - and there's a great breakfast too.

"It's a pared-down dining experience, but pared-down with a purpose, so you could fancy yourself just another Tokyo commuter, on the way home, eating the food of your forefathers, cooked the way they'd have done it." READ REVIEW

"If it’s udon you’re after and you don’t fancy waiting in line at Koya, you don’t have to – the noodles at Koya Bar are every bit as good, judging by the Kinoko Hiya-Atsu I tried – my favourite cold-udon-meets-hot-broth combination, made with mushrooms and walnut miso." READ REVIEW

"With friendly staff and unusual dishes, Koya Bar offers a taste of Tokyo in London that’s bound to go down well with Koya fans." READ REVIEW
