Shaftesbury has announced that bar and restaurant concept, Kiwa Sushi & Grill, has selected Chinatown London’s 1 Gerrard Place for its debut site, set to open later this year.
Spanning 5,195 sq ft over two floors, Kiwa Sushi & Grill will have a seated capacity of around 230 covers, creating ‘authentic, modernised, and affordable food and drink, served in a contemporary environment’.
Julia Wilkinson, restaurant director at Shaftesbury, commented: “Their choice of Chinatown London for the international debut of Kiwa Sushi & Grill really showcases just how important and relevant the destination is. Chinatown London sits in the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic and exciting dining scenes, and we are very much looking forward to them opening here later this year.”
Jay Park, founder, Kiwa Sushi & Grill, added: “My vision for Kiwa Sushi & Grill is to bring a taste of the western-eastern fusion within modern East Asian dining, and this debut restaurant will symbolise how western culture has been embraced across Asia.
“In terms of location for this concept, no other place rivals Chinatown London in my eyes; its commitment to celebrating both traditional and developing trends across the Far East cements its unique offering in the capital. Our menu has been designed to be accessible, offering something for everyone, and I am excited to open the doors later this year.”
