Japanese barbecue concept coming to Chinatown, London

Japanese barbecue restaurant High Yaki will soon be opening its debut venue in Chinatown London.

Specialising in yakitori, yakiniku and dry-aged wagyu, High Yaki will be bringing its 'staircase barbecue' – the name given to the presentation of the ready-to-grill food – to Chinatown London early next year. The 3,600 sq ft, 150 cover restaurant at 10 Newport Place will also have a mezzanine level for private dining.

The brand is inspired by traditional Japanese cuisine with a western twist, combining exotic flavours with showstopping presentation. The menu focuses on a variety of grill-ready meat and fish, including an array of beef cuts, offal and fresh seafood, which diners can cook on their own grill in the middle of the table. High Yaki has been brought to the UK by the owners of Skewer & Beer and Shu Xiangge Hot Pot.

Leo Lu, director of High Yaki, comments: "Launching a debut High Yaki is an exciting project, and there’s no better place to bring the concept than Chinatown London. The energetic day-to-night community, of both Eastern and Western audiences, is ideal for what we offer, and we can’t wait to open our doors in the coming weeks."

This announcement follows the opening of Kung Fu Noodle, the third concept in Chinatown London for restaurateur Alex Xu. The destination is also set to welcome Pochawa Grill in the coming weeks, a debut casual Korean barbecue concept.
