Harden's says

On the site formerly known as Sakagura, and still from the Japan Centre team, a "downtown retro-style ramen bar" inspired by the yokocho 'alleyways' of Japan and 1970s Tokyo.

Just off Regent Street – in the pedestrianised enclave surrounding Heddon Street – this late winter 2020 newcomer is the brainchild of the Japan Centre Team. Inspired by the yokocho ‘alleyways’ of Japan and 1970s Tokyo, you eat ramen and other Japanese bites washed down with well-priced drinks options amidst “authentically fake kitsch” decor. Most reporters are very enthusiastic about the “full-flavoured, thick broths – occasionally you can tell this is all pre-prepared food, but the prices are very reasonable and it's not supposed to be a temple”. See also, Panton Yokocho.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
