Second branch for JinLi restaurant

Sichuanese restaurant brand JinLi has opened a second UK branch. Situated at London’s Central Cross, it is called JinLi Chinatown. Both of the restaurants are in the Chinatown area, which is managed by property group Shaftesbury.

An in-house team has designed the 399.5 sq m (4,300 sq ft) venue, which has space for 150 covers. The restaurant keeps with the brand’s style of mixing old and new, with traditional wooden panels but digital menus.

“The concept of JinLi is to bring authentic Chinese Sichuan cuisine to London, transporting the distinct culture and essence of the Sichuan area to the West,” says JinLi owner Yi Fei. “We are thrilled to open our new restaurant, JinLi Chinatown, adding to our portfolio so we can share our passion with more visitors looking for an authentic experience.”
