International hot pot restaurant chain Hai Di Lao is to make its European debut with a 10,000 sq ft restaurant at the Trocadero in Piccadilly Circus.

The West End site is moments from Chinatown and will have direct links to Piccadilly Circus tube station, sitting beneath a 700 room hotel and roof top bar.

The first Hai Di Lao restaurant opened in Sichuan Province, China in 1994. There are now 310 locations worldwide.

The announcement of a flagship restaurant is part of an aggressive expansion drive, with around 80 new openings planned for this year.

Savills advised Hai Di Lao on acquiring the new, 15-year lease.

“Hai Di Lao is a globally recognised brand with fans of the concept worldwide,” says Savills Leisure team associate director Richard Thomas. “It is testament to London’s reputation as a foodie capital that it has chosen the city as its first European destination. 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.”
