Manchester-based Ban di Bul has lined up a second site in the city. An application has been made to the city council to launch a Korean barbecue house in the Old Half Moon Chambers building in Chapel Walks.
The new restaurant, Ann Yeong, would occupy the basement, ground and first floors of the building with proposed opening hours of 11am to 1.30am. Hoardings on the building feature the Ban di Bul branding and proclaim it will be the “north west’s biggest Korean barbecue house.”
The site has been empty since wine bar and restaurant Grinch, operated by Mud Crab Industries, closed in 2016. Ban di Bul opened in Princess Street in 2011, offering traditional Korean dishes and an on-table barbecue dining experience.
