Humble Chicken chef Angelo Sato is to bring back his QSR Japanese brand Yatai following the acquisition of a site in Fitzrovia.

The concept was originally part of the opening line up at Market Hall’s flagship West End​ site but only traded for a few months due to the pandemic. 

The Goodge Street site is set to open in May and will have a focus on takeaway and delivery, although there will be some seating. 

Sato - who has worked in some of the best restaurants in Japan as well as top restaurants in London - says his new site won’t be identical to the one he launched at Market Halls but will still be focused on rice balls, sandos, katsu dishes, sushi bowls and donburi. 

Yatai is one of a number of quick service concepts Angelo Sato has launched since leaving his role as head chef of Tom Sellers’ Story restaurant in 2017. 

Projects have included two Mission Sato shops offering takeaway bento boxes​as well as sushi bowl specialist Omoide (the latter continues to trade on Bermondsey Street but Sato is no longer involved). 

The chef’s debut solo restaurant Humble Chicken specialises in yakitori​ and was well-received when it launched in 2021.
