The team running Chinese restaurant Xi’an Impression in Highbury, north London, has in opened Bloomsbury, its third site in the capital.
Master Wei has opened at a site in Cosmo Place formerly occupied by one of London’s oldest restaurants, Cagney’s, which was founded in 1978. As at its sister sites, Master Wei specialises in dishes from Xi’an City in Shan Xi province in central China. The kitchen is led by Xi’an Impression co-founder Guirong Wei, with the new venue featuring some favourite dishes from the original restaurant, which is opposite Arsenal football club’s Emirates Stadium, as well as more traditional dishes.
In July, the Xi’an Impression team launched sister site Xi’an Biang Biang Noodles near Spitalfields in east London.
