Singaporean restaurateur Ellen Chew is bringing her Southeast Asian fusion restaurant concept Shan Shui to the capital, having secured a site on Buckingham Palace Road near Victoria station.

The restaurant, which opened its first site in Bicester Village back in 2018​, serves a menu combining Indonesian, Sichuan, Malaysian and Shanghainese cuisines.

Dishes to feature on the menu have included beef rending with desiccated coconut; crispy Sichuan mala chicken; nasi goring; Canton vegetable fried noodles; Bangkok crispy fried fish; cold silken tofu with pickled mustard leaves; spring onion pastry; gyoza; calamari with ginger, soy and coriander; and vegetable spring rolls.

The opening has been confirmed by Colliers, on behalf of Grosvenor.

Other operators also set to launch new sites on Buckingham Palace Road include Gail’s Bakery and plant-based fast food brand Neat Burger.

“Buckingham Palace Road is the gateway into Grosvenor’s Belgravia Estate and therefore it is vitally important to attract the right tenants," says George Collison of the London restaurants team at Colliers.

"Despite the challenging circumstances it is great to see a flurry of exciting food and beverage offerings taking space at Buckingham Palace Road and these new tenants add a point of difference to the already eclectic food and drink offering in Victoria. We are set to announce further exciting deals in the near future.”

Chew, who is known for founding Chinatown’s Malaysian and Singaporean restaurant Rasa Sayang, also operates Lobos Tapas in London Bridge and Soho; and Lotus Leaf in Westfield Stratford.

Despite the pandemic, Chew has continued to grow her restaurant portfolio in the last year, opening a permanent site​ for Asian-influenced bakery concept Arôme at The Yards in London's Covent Garden; and launching new Chinese-focused concept Mrs Chew’s Chinese Kitchen​ within Hammerson's Grand Central shopping centre in Birmingham.
