For those of you that have been to Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham or Edinburgh recently, the name Tattu probably sounds familiar. A staple in its respective cities, the Chinese restaurant and cocktail bar has a signature aesthetic and vibe to it that makes an evening feel like a whole experience. Now, London is getting its very own slice of the action.
Founded by two brothers in 2015, Tattu fuses meaningful design with innovative Chinese cooking. The venue gets its name from the art that inspired the interiors, as well as the ancient word ‘Tatau’ which means ‘make a mark’. The idea? To have a full sensory experience while diving into the seasonal menu of dim sum, small plates and innovative cocktail creations.
Against a backdrop of dimmed lighting, indoor foliage and plush seating, diners can tuck into Peking duck bon bons, crispy pork belly, soft shell crab, fresh scallops and sumptuous black wagyu. While the London menu hasn’t been released, we can expect Tattu to carry these staples over with them, along with a plethora of signature cocktail mixes. Favourites include the Empress Jade, made with gin, pinot and apple, Tattu Twinkle with Champagne, vanilla, elderflower and lemon, and Sake Sour of vodka, plum sake and passion fruit.
