Chinese hot pot chain Hai Di Lao will open its first UK restaurant at the Trocadero in Piccadilly Circus, London.
In a deal facilitated by real estate firm Savills, the brand has signed a 15-year lease of an almost 10,000sqft site. It is the chain’s first venue in Europe and follows the opening of its New York restaurant in Times Square.
Savills’ leisure team associate director Richard Thomas said “Hai Di Lao is a globally recognised brand with fans of the concept worldwide… the chain already has its sights set on expansion both in the UK and across Europe and we are very pleased to have secured this prime spot for its flagship restaurant.”
To date, Hai Di Lao has opened 310 locations around the world.
