Fast casual dining business Vapiano is to open its third restaurant in London.
The company said it would invest £2.5m to redevelop a former nightclub and restaurant in Wardour Street, Soho.
Building work is set to start in the coming weeks, with the aim of opening the restaurant in December 2013.
It will have a customer area of 7,000 sq ft, capacity for 250 diners and will employ 80 staff.
The company's existing restaurants in London are located at Great Portland Street and Bankside.
Vapiano UK managing Director, Phil Sermon, said: "We are thrilled to have secured such a fantastic site in the heart of Soho.
"This is just the start of our expansion and highlights our intent to open many more Vapiano restaurants in prime positions across London and the UK."
