A Korean BBQ restaurant has opened in Chinatown London
The 80 cover 'Olle' restaurant is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue, and opened last week.
It's been founded by restaurateur Charles Seo, who pointed to a growing interest in Asian cuisine amongst British diners as an inspiration for opening Olle.
You might think of Chinese food when you think of Chinatown London, but the area is increasingly becoming known for its food from across Asia.
As we reported in February, a raft of new restaurant openings has helped to solidify this reputation.
This is all good news for Chinatown, at what has been a fairly turbulent time. In January, we reported that businesses there had issued a bleak warning about their future in the face of steep rate rises.
The figures included a restaurant which will see its rates double to over £50,000 in 2017.
Chinese businesses in London have also been suffering from a decline in the value of the British pound. Since June, any ingredients or products that they import have cost as much as 20 percent more due to the poor exchange rate.
