Boasting 18,848 sq. ft on the lower ground floor of Quill City Mall, Aragan Yokocho is the largest Japanese restaurant in Asia and replicates the dining experience in the mysterious alleys in Tokyo where all sort of delicious food are found.
The restaurant has 10 stations where each of these station serves a specific cuisine from Japan and is headed by a professional chef. The concept in Aragan Yokocho is somewhat similar to a foodcourt, except that all the stations belongs to one restaurant.
Aragan Yokocho is unique in the sense that it not only aimed to please their patrons with Japanese culinary delights but offers a unique Japanese cultural experience as well.
