A new high-end Chinese restaurant is set to open near St James’s Park this month where no expense will be spared to offer the most luxurious ingredients. The Noble Palace, a stone’s throw from Buck House, will serve Peking duck with a choice of Beluga caviar, abalone, or black truffle pancake.
Its menu will serve dishes representing all eight of China’s culinary regions, with delicacies said to have been enjoyed by the last emperors of the Qing dynasty, who were ousted in 1912, along with specials dictated by the best ingredients available on the day.
The venue will also feature a Mi (for mystery, apparently) Bar, where a cocktail will be mixed to order based on the mood and flavour profile you provide. There will also be a Mi Lounge with a menu of 200 whiskies and –presumably for high-rolling sports fans – what is claimed to be the largest flat-screen TV in London.
