The menu at Chai Wu was created by Chef Jason See Ming Hwa, who specialises in Chinese cookery, and overseen by Ian Pengelley, Group Executive Chef, one of the UK’s leading experts in Asian cuisine. Together they have created a diverse menu incorporating speciality and luxury ingredients. Starters include soups, dim sum and small dishes such as Chilean sea-bass dumplings with gold leaf, and a Wagyu and black pepper puff. For mains, diners have the option of à la carte dishes or fresh meat, fish and vegetables grilled to order, such as poussin with spicy chilli-lime dressing. Signature plates and specialities will include Beijing duck, Alaskan king crab with soy glaze, and lotus root and lily bulb in a spicy toban sauce.
The restaurant concept and interior design are inspired by the five elements in Chinese philosophy: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Incorporating natural elements throughout the space, finishes have a mix of marble, leather and timber. There's a theatrical charcoal grill in the centre of the restaurant; the dining bar surrounding the grill offers guests a prime view of the chefs at work and a glimpse into the excitement of the kitchen.
