Grand Imperial London, based inside The Grosvenor hotel at London Victoria, celebrated Chinese New Year early with its grand opening and launch of its private dining event space.
Guests for the events industry on Tuesday (26 January) night included corporate planners from Google, Warner Bros, Singapore Airlines, Amex, John Lewis and Dell. The restaurant, which is the first Grand Imperial in Europe, cost £2m to create and is owned by Hong Kong restaurateur Rand Cheung.
“Everything, down to the glass lighting and calligraphy artwork in the Grand Imperial, has been arranged with Rand Cheung’s personal Feng Shui expert on hand,” says Restaurant Manager Edmond Wong. “We want to create the perfect fine dining Cantonese experience but ultimately, we want to rekindle London’s love for authentic Chinese food.”
The private dinning area seats up to 20 people and can be hired for small meetings.
CN was there to capture the action of the grand opening.
