New Asian dining concept coming to The Yards
Gura Gura, a brand-new Asian bar and kitchen concept, has signed at 19 Slingsby Place, The Yards, with a view to opening its debut restaurant in Covent Garden.
The 2,900sq ft site, due to launch in mid-October, will offer a mix of sushi, sashimi, dim sum and small plates. A wok menu will also be available, with highlights including lantern chili prawns, Thai-style basil chicken and Bulgogi-style beef.
Set across two floors within the new, revitalised venue The Yards, Gura Gura will host 110 covers. It will provide a unique cocktail menu and a walkthrough 'wine tunnel' at the entrance. Designed by Orphic Design Studio and founded by experienced restaurateur Gobind Chona, Gura Gura is inspired by Asian culture and heritage.
"I am very excited to be bringing this brand-new concept to The Yards, Covent Garden," says Chona. "This location puts us right at the heart of the West End, a bustling area and attracting both local and international visitors, to try our unique cuisine. Our distinct interior and ambience, paired with great dishes and cocktails, will deliver a genuine dining experience and we can't wait to open our doors later this year."
