Elephant Park joined by four east Asian brands

Lendlease has announced the signings of e-sports café Wanyoo, Taiwanese tea specialists YiFang, and restaurant & bar Oisoi, which have taken an inter-connected unit spanning over 557 sq m, and will be joined at Elephant Park by sushi and hot food outlet Kokoro.

Wanyoo was founded in 1998 and now has over 1,300 locations across four continents. The new Elephant Park site will be the brand’s fourth in the UK, covering 178 sq m and seating up to 45 players.

Having signed for a 369 sq m, 130 cover restaurant, Oisoi is the park’s largest dining outlet to date. It provides a dining concept of “When East Meets West”, collaborating with Michelin-starred chef Max Castaldo. Specialising in Taiwanese fruit tea, YiFang is set to open its latest London outlet.

Kokoro is a Korean-Japanese takeaway focused brand and has expanded significantly throughout the UK since launching over 10 years ago. It will take up 93 sq m in the park. 

Guy Thomas, Head of Place Assets at Lendlease, said: “Adding some amazing East Asian food and drink, gives further diversity to the wider Elephant Park lifestyle and F&B offer.”

Zhaorong Chen of Wanyoo, commented: “Alongside these great F&B brands, we represent modern East Asian culture, and are delighted to be bringing that to Elephant Park.”

Jay Wang of Oisoi, added: “We look forward to showcasing the best of East Asian food and design; Elephant Park is a melting pot of international dining, so it is exciting to be part of the mix.”
