Shing Tat Chung, Wai Ting Chung and Erchen Chang – the team behind BAO – have confirmed they will open their new Taiwanese restaurant XU on Tuesday 23rd May on Rupert Street, Soho.
The entrepreneurial trio will open the new stylish split-level site on the borders of Soho and China Town next month, introducing a whole new side to the team’s culinary and creative talent.
XU is set across two floors and offers a cocktail bar, Taiwanese tea bar and private dining space; as well as the sophisticated 76-cover restaurant.
A completely new concept and direction for the trio, XU will further immerse diners into the world of Taiwanese cuisine, showcasing the island’s unique cultural diversity, as well as taking influence from the team’s travels across mainland China.
Open for lunch and dinner service seven days a week, XU will also serve rare and competition level Taiwanese teas, providing a bold and interesting addition to London’s diverse restaurant scene.
The interiors at XU exude sophistication, giving a nod to 1930s Taiwan. The team worked closely with renowned design team BradyWilliams – who are responsible for the interiors at some of London’s most recognisable restaurants such as Corbin & King’s Fischer’s and Bellanger, to create a space echoing the most glamourous and elegant of dining destinations.
