Noodle and dumpling restaurant Shanghai Modern opens in London’s Chinatown

Casual noodle and dumpling restaurant Shanghai Modern is the latest opening in Chinatown’s Central Cross.

Chefs will prepare fresh dumpling and noodles in an open kitchen showcasing a number of regional dishes.

Chu Ting Tang of Shanghai Modern added: “With such a central location and vibrant atmosphere throughout the day and into the evening, Central Cross in Chinatown London is an idyllic destination to open our latest restaurant. Our offer is an experience to excite the senses and we are extremely lucky to have such a bespoke space in a brand-new development in central London.”

Julia Wilkinson, head of group restaurant strategy at Shaftesbury which owns Central Cross, said: “Shanghai Modern is the latest exciting new restaurant to join Central Cross, one of the best-connected destinations in London’s West End. Just as Shanghai is a melting pot for neighbouring cuisines, so Shanghai Modern will be offering a diverse menu while focusing on Shanghainese classics such as xiao long bao and drunken chicken. Xiao long bao are synonymous with the food culture in the city and we are thrilled that Shanghai Modern are transporting a small pocket of this to the streets of Chinatown London.”
