Japanese food hall, Japan Centre, has announced plans for a 7,000 sq ft expansion to its flagship London site in mid-March.
Founded in 1976, the food hall located on Panton Street currently offers a range of over 3,000 products spanning food, drink, and lifestyle.
Included in the expansion to the food hall will be a central courtyard eating area, open kitchens, and a “beautiful Japanese entrance experience”.
A further addition to the site is set to commence towards the end of 2021 alongside phase two of construction.
This will include a “casual dining concept” created by the combined teams at Japan Centre and Shoryu, a hakata tonkotsu ramen specialist restaurant.
The establishment, due to open on the food hall’s 45th anniversary, will reportedly be “perfect for quick bites, or longer lunches and dinner”.
