Min Jiang restaurant to open at Royal Garden hotel

Singapore-based Chinese restaurant Min Jiang is set to make its London debut this summer with the opening of an outlet at the Royal Garden hotel in Kensington.

Set to open in July, the eaterie will be the third Min Jiang restaurant after two venues in Singapore at the Goodwood Park Hotel and Min Jiang One North at Rochester Park.

Housed in the hotel's former Tenth restaurant on the top floor, overlooking Kensington Gardens, it will comprise a 100-seater restaurant with bar and 20-seat private dining room as well as wine rooms.

Min Jiang will offer a menu based on various regional Chinese cuisines, with dishes including dim sum, hot and sour soup and the speciality of Beijing duck cooked in a wood fired oven.

The restaurant manager will be Jason Li, with masterchef Lan overseeing the kitchen.

Graham Bamford, general manager of the Royal Garden Hotel, told Caterersearch that adapting the 10th floor space to suit the requirements of a Chinese restaurant had been a challenge.

"Getting the woks and necessary technology to create the required heat in the kitchen in place hasn't been easy," he said.

"But all obstacles are overcome and we're really excited and hope that the restaurant will repeat the success of Min Jiang in Singapore."
