What they say:

With names such as Wagamama, Duck and Waffle and Hakkassan under his belt, Alan Yau knows a thing or two about the restaurant business. After hanging up his gloves, the restaurateur is back with a new little eatery in the heart of London's shopping district. Moments away from Bond Street tube station, Yamabahçe will be a simple affair with a 'mono-product' menu, serving only Pide - a Turkish flatbread that is similar to pizza.

What we say:

While it's sad to see the Creperie close after 38 years, Yamabahçe, which is set to take its place, is an exciting new addition to central London. The restaurant will only serve Pide, a traditional Turkish flatbread. This isn't the first time Alan Yau has turned his attention to the dish, in 2015 he opened Babaji Pide, which served the pizza-like food alongside other Turkish sides.
