Burmese restaurant, Lahpet, has selected The Yards, Covent Garden, for its first West End site, and second permanent central London location.

One of London’s only restaurants specialising in Burmese cuisine, Lahpet, has signed for a 2,500 sq ft unit at 21 Slingsby Place, and will be bringing it’s unique and contemporary take on authentic Burmese cooking to The Yards, Covent Garden later in the year.

Lahpet’s menu offers a carefully curated selection of small and large plates and noodle bowls, including the restaurant’s namesake dish, Lahpet Thohk, the infamous pickled tea leaf salad, and also other classic dishes such as Mohinga (Catfish and lemongrass chowder) and Coconut Noodles with Chicken. There will also be a creative cocktail list and house-made fermented drinks offering.

Dan Anton, Co-Founder, Lahpet, added: “We knew we wanted to open our next restaurant in the heart of central London, and Covent Garden’s bustling and vibrant community is the ideal place for us to branch out. When we visited The Yards we saw first-hand its appeal as an exciting dining hub in one of London’s most iconic areas. With our unique offering and the strength of a new West End location, we are sure Lahpet Covent Garden will be a huge success and we can’t wait to get started on our latest venture.”
