Restaurateur Alan Yau to bring tastes of Asia to London’s Docklands

Wardian London is set to become Docklands’ next top dining destination as influential restaurateur Alan Yau is gearing up to open two restaurants there next summer. Yau has founded a number of familiar names on the London restaurant scene, including the Wagamama chain, and Hakkasan and Yauatcha, the latter both being past winners of a coveted Michelin star.

The restaurants at Wardian London will both feature Asian gastronomy with a twist. The larger of the two restaurants, Chyna, will have 120 covers and an extensive terrace fronting its waterside setting. Its seasonally led menu will be based on Cantonese cooking using British seafood, featuring European-style ingredients such as Iberico ham and fresh sea cucumbers from Spain. “It is almost like what I would put together if you were coming to my house for a dinner party,” was how Yau summed up the menu to London news source, the Evening Standard.

Its neighbour, Yau Grilling, will offer all-day service, starting with traditional breakfasts from 7.30am. In the evening, the grill service that gives the restaurant its name will be serving beef, lobster, king crab and other delights in a menu drawing inspiration from Japan. With just 45 covers and an informal style, this will be the perfect place to gather with friends and family at weekends.

Together, the two restaurants will occupy 10,000 square feet of space in the ground and first floors of Wardian London.
