I think that refers to their previous incarnation on Shaftesbury Avenue, rather than The Cut.

Ah, didn't see that. Distracted by the tasty looking menu I guess.

Don't think so, Edward. Think it's permanent (or as permanent as London restaurant openings can be).
It has come from being a yr-long popup above a Chinese restaurant. The Yamagoya website is very outdated and makes no mention of relocation, but their twitter says it's a permanent home.
Walked past yesterday and it was looking very nearly ready to open.
Looking forward to seeing how it compares to Tonkotsu by Tate Modern.

Just walked past it. Looks good and already busy.

Agreed, looks 2/3 full. What is Ramen?

I was a bit surprised on Sunday to see it open and full of people!

Soft opening, I guess, Zoe.

Had a meal there yesterday-very good

Had lunch there today.
Soup was tasty, but thinner than you'd expect for tonkotsu, and it could definitely have been hotter.
Chashu was lean, but maybe a little thinly sliced.
Egg had been somehow made sweet (a marinade, I imagine). Not to my taste, but clearly to their taste.
All of these things are matters of personal taste, but the thing I couldn't get past was the noodles. They were cooked to have some bite - which is fine by me - but they were somehow hard on the outside whilst mushy and floury on the inside.
Gyozas had tasty filling with good texture, but I like them more when they have more of a crispy finish on one side.
Not overly impressed by the new place.
Tonkotsu Bankside is better, imho, even though it's 2-3 a bowl more expensive.
