The Ivy Asia is set to open a new site at St David’s shopping centre in Cardiff after agreeing a deal with Landsec.
The Asian-inspired concept is a first for the brand in Wales, and will launch later this summer on The Hayes, next to its sister restaurant The Ivy, which itself opened in late 2019.
The 3,900 sq ft eatery will cater up to 166 guests, with indoor dining and a terrace space. Open from lunch to late night, with weekend brunch, the menu will be overseen by executive chef Simon Gregory, with dishes from across Asia.
The menu will include a vast collection of sushi and sashimi, with vegetarian and plant-based options available.
Gregory said: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing The Ivy Asia to Cardiff, the first in Wales. Cardiff is known for its vibrant atmosphere and rich culture, making it the perfect place for this new Asian inspired concept. The team we have in place is fantastic and the restaurant itself will offer a beautiful setting for all occasions.”
