Following a four month hiatus, Koya - the udon noodle specialists in Soho and the City - have confirmed that they will reopen their doors next week.
For the first time, Koya will offer delivery (through Deliveroo) and takeaway, so that guests can finally get their udon fix without braving the queue. Food can be collected on-site and enjoyed al fresco at both restaurants; on the terrace at Bloomberg Arcade, and on the new street seating on the recently-pedestrianised Frith Street in the heart of Soho, the perfect place for outdoor drinking and dining this summer.
Both restaurants will initially return with a slightly shortened menu of Koya's signature classics which, for the reopening, will be aligned across both sites - so Soho dwellers can now get their hands on Koya City's popular Tonkatsu (breaded aged pork loin), while City will offer Soho's Atsu-Age tofu, alongside a selection of new summer dishes perfect for takeaway, including Chicken Kara-age Cup with pickles and Vegetable Kakiage Chips with Shichimi spice salt.
Koya's reopening for takeaway, delivery and outdoor dining proceeds the restaurants' full reopening for eat-in later this summer.
Koya City will reopen on Monday 27th July
Monday to Saturday: 11:30am to 10:30pm for takeaway, delivery and terrace seating
Sunday: 11:30am to 6pm for takeaway, delivery and terrace seating
Koya Soho will reopen on Wednesday 29th July
Monday to Thursday: 12pm to 10:30pm for takeaway and delivery, with outside table service from 17:00
Friday: 12pm to 11pm for takeaway and delivery, with outside table service from 17:00
Saturday: 12pm to 11pm for takeaway and delivery, with outside table service all day
Sunday: 12pm to 10:30pm, with outside table service all day
Koya Soho and City do not take reservations. Koya Soho will use WalkIn app for a virtual queue for outdoor seating. Outdoor seating at Koya City will be on first-come first-served basis as it’s not operating table service.
Both restaurants will also deliver exclusively with Deliveroo.
