Shikumen finds Paradise at Hotel Xanadu

September 17, 2014

Emerging high-end Chinese and Japanese restaurant concept Shikumen will open its second site at Hotel Xanadu on Bond Street in Ealing after Davis Coffer Lyons – the leisure specialists – secured the letting on behalf of Dorsett House Group.

Shikumen – which one of a number of brands owned by John Woo’s JRC Group – opened its first restaurant at the Dorsett Shepherd’s Bush earlier this year (2014). The approximately 3,500 sq ft restaurant will provide the hotel’s complete catering offer, from a full breakfast menu, lunch and dinner, for both residents and non-residents, as well as room service, which will be served until midnight.

Rob Meadows, Leisure Property Consultant at Davis Coffer Lyons, said: “Letting restaurant space within hotels is very different to traditional sites and requires a strong understanding of the unique trading environment such a space provides.  Shikumen is an excellent operator that understands the challenges an almost 24 hour operation presents. We are confident it will be incredibly popular with both hotel guests and local people alike.”
