About Yokocho

What is Yokocho Downtown?

Yokocho celebrates Japanese regional ramen cuisine, from northern Hokkaido to Kyushu in the south with all the broths and ramen noodles in between.

What broth floats your boat? Miso, shio salt or vegan, we’ve got them all and more. Are you a lover of a chijire wavy noodle, or more of a slick thin hosomen fan? Discover all these regional specialities at our downtown retro ramen bar and transport yourself to the nostalgic bright lights and lively ‘yokocho’ alleyways of Showa era Japan in the heart of London.

What’s a yokocho?

Yokocho is Japanese for an alleyway, these famously narrow streets packed with delicious restaurants, dive bars and izakaya sit hidden off the main streets in every city of Japan.

Loud, noisy, fun and full of mouthwatering tastes & smells - yokocho are our number 1 destination for a night out.
