Lu Ban Bar and Restaurant

Description

Set in the iconic Cains Brewery Village, Lu Ban is bringing high-end regional Chinese cuisine to the Baltic Triangle. 

The menu focuses on authentic recipes and high-quality food paired with traditional cooking techniques. Prior to the restaurant’s opening, head chef Dave Critchley spent time in Tianjin meeting experts and learning more about the flavours and recipes of the region. Expect small and large plates, tasting menus and banquets all washed down with a carefully curated selection of international wines, beers and cocktails. 

Designed by Liverpool-born interior designer Angela Rawson, the setting will portray both elements of Chinese culture and art, paired with nods towards the building’s industrial past. The pièce de résistance will come in the form of a stunning bronze feature wall - drawing the eyes of diners, regardless of where they are seated.
