The 100-cover restaurant, opened in partnership with Michelin-starred Japanese chef Yoshihiro Murata, was Hakkasan’s second Japanese venue in the Capital, but closed after just six months of trading.
Situated at Broadgate West on Snowdon Street, the restaurant features a chef’s table for eight, private dining area and bar seating 30 people in addition to main dining area.
It is adjacent to Hakkasan’s Chinese fine-dining restaurant, which the company claims is still trading well.
Restaurant Property has been appointed to handle the sale. Head of sales Mark Calder said:
Mark Calder, head of sales for Restaurant Property - the agents appointed to handle the sale, said: “This is an excellently located, very high specification restaurant close to L’Anima and HKK restaurants which are both trading very strongly.
“Restaurant Property has been solely instructed to market this restaurant and we expect to achieve a substantial premium for our client.
“As the economy has picked up so has the interest from operators to have more restaurants in the City and we expect intense competition for this site.”
