Yau has founded a number of familiar names on the London restaurant scene, including the Wagamama chain, and Hakkasan and Yauatcha, the latter both being past winners of a coveted Michelin star. The restaurants at Wardian London both feature Asian gastronomy with a twist. The larger of the two restaurants, Chyna, will have 120 covers and an extensive terrace fronting its waterside setting. Its seasonally led menu will be based on Cantonese cooking using British seafood (chosen from tanks on a dedicated ‘water market’), featuring European-style ingredients such as Iberico ham and fresh sea cucumbers from Spain.
