The Kitchen was founded by hard working husband and wife team, Ian Jones and Shirley Wu; both well known in the Shenzhen hospitality industry. After the success of their award winning Thai restaurant they recognized a gap in the market and created The Kitchen in Coco Park, Futian; right in the heart of the entertainment district.
Partnering with Executive Chef Justus Jennings from San Francisco the trio created an iconic restaurant focused on providing excellent cuisine with a value for money proposition second to none in the city.
The Kitchen Bantian was created after two years of research and planning brought on by existing clients wanting quality western food at lunchtime nearby their offices in the industrial district.
Successful businesses revolve around successful people and Shirley was able to persuade her brother Bobby - an award winning chef to join us at Bantian - the second restaurant in what we plan to be a small chain across the Pearl River Delta in coming years.
