First-Look Inside Leeds’ New Premium Oriental Venue - Blue Pavilion

With the official opening of premium Oriental restaurant, Blue Pavilion, just around the corner on 30th October, we take a sneak peek at the luxury interiors of the latest addition to Leeds’ restaurant scene

Fine dining in the heart of Leeds

From the owners of Leeds-favourite Blue Sakura, Blue Pavilion is a new, fine-dining restaurant which celebrates the essence of East Asian cuisine.

The impressive £3m venue, situated off Merrion Street, Woodhouse Lane and Albion Street, boasts stunning interiors, inspired by Chinese culture including blossom, lantern lights, and Chinese Zodiac statues.

The stunning restaurant also features an impressive bar, which will serve premium cocktails such as “Jiuzhaigou Hu” (created with Roku, Aperitif Wine, Blue Curacao, Lemon, and Bitters), as well as exclusive spirits, including The Macallan Sherry Oak (25-year-old).

Blue Pavilion’s menu will include a number of set menus as well as an a la carte menu, featuring signature dishes such as Dim Sum Platters, Peking Duck with Caviar, Japanese Shioyaki Wagyu Beef, a sought-after delicacy, and Taiwanese Sanbei Chicken.

The perfect place to entertain

The restaurant also boasts three private dining rooms which can accommodate between 11 and eight guests.

The site features a state-of-the-art adjoining karaoke venue, K-CUBE, where guests can enjoy post-dinner entertainment in a private and stylish setting. The largest of the three private dining rooms also has its own private karaoke room.

Jack Lin, Director at Blue Pavilion, said: “We can’t wait to officially open the doors to Blue Pavilion on Monday and for guests to experience our culinary journey that combines centuries-old traditions with modern creativity and exquisite presentation.”

Chiu Tong Huang, Director at Blue Pavilion, added: “Blue Pavilion has been designed with luxury in mind – from every element of the food and drink offering, to of course, the venue itself. The result is something truly stunning and unique that will captivate our diners and offer a gastronomic experience like no other.”

James Broughton, Head of Marketing & Communications for Town Centre Securities PLC (TCS), owners of the Merrion Centre, expressed his excitement for the opening, stating, “We are thrilled to be able to introduce Blue Pavilion to the vibrant Leeds dining landscape. This stunning, fine dining venue further complements the diverse array of international eateries across the Merrion Centre and promises an exceptional dining experience for the people of Leeds.”
