Japan Centre

OPENED 73 DAYS AGO

The Japan Centre has opened a new flagship store and food hall on Panton Street, off Leicester Square.

The original Japan Centre on Shaftesbury Avenue is the ultimate one-stop-shop for all things Japanese, so we’re excited by this new opening with an expanded offering.

The Spot:

The new site has a number of specialist food rooms, focusing on different foods, alongside all everything you expect to find in the Japan Centre. In addition, there’s a central, 100-seat food courtyard.

The Food:

There’s a dedicated miso room, which will serve fresh miso and hard-to-find examples. You can also learn about the different types of miso and how to use it.

You’ll be able to buy all the Japanese products you could possibly need in the main shop, including fresh and dry goods like seaweed, dashi and soy sauce. You can even buy the freshest fish for making sashimi.

The take-out deli section of the store is offering noodles, including ramen and hand pulled udon, Japanese curry, and a range of gyoza and tempura.

The central food hall is a really exciting development here — the original Japan Centre had a very small café, so this is a chance to see what they can do.

The Drinks:

There’s a dedicated tea room, where you can order tea by the gram and also try lots of different blends.

Those who want something with a bit more punch should head for the sake room, where there are loads of different styles to try and experts on hand to help you choose.

The Damage:

There is a huge range of products on sale here so it’s hard to say how much you’ll spend. It all depends on how carried away you get in the sake room…

In a Nutshell:

If you like Japanese food, you are going to be in heaven. We’re most excited about the food hall and its addition to the new wave of Asian food halls opening in London, including Bang Bang Oriental.
