Called Hello Oriental, it is being launched by the group behind Manchester restaurant Ocean Treasure, and will draw inspiration from Asian dining destinations such as Bang Bang Oriental in London and 1800 Lucky in Miami, serving Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine.
Bearing the same name as the recently launched online supermarket, Hello Oriental will be open daily from 10am to 11pm, and will feature DJs and live music at the weekend.
It will be located beneath the soon-to-open Symphony Park in the heart of Circle Square and is due to open in July.
The venue’s focal point will be a market hall that will serve everything from Chinese roast meats and dim sum to east Asian street food. There will also be modern Chinese bakery and on-site supermarket, which will sell all of the products and ingredients that are cooked on-site.
“When we launched Hello Oriental as an online supermarket 12 months ago, that was only the start of our journey,” says Ricky Yip, Hello Oriental owner. “We also wanted to deliver the very best Asian and oriental produce to our customers in Manchester, but we needed a flagship venue that would bring our vision to life.
“It was clear to us that Circle Square is the perfect place for us, a new city neighbourhood that is bringing people together and creating a really thriving community. We can’t wait to launch Hello Oriental this year and we’re confident that our new market hall experience will be a place for food-lovers of all backgrounds to come together, socialise and enjoy the very best Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine.”
Hello Oriental will join Canvas, a first-of-its-kind lifestyle and events space, and TRIB3, a specialist high-intensity fitness studio, when they open their doors at Circle Square later this year.
