London-based Taiwanese restaurant group Bao has announced its plans to open a new noodle shop at Battersea Power Station in Wandsworth, London.
In a LinkedIn post, the company announced that the restaurant is scheduled to open on 17 July.
According to a report by The Caterer, Bao Battersea will be a standalone 88-cover restaurant inside JKS Restaurants’ food hall Arcade Battersea, overlooking Level 1, Turbine Hall A of the power station.
It will be open for customers between 10am and 9pm from Monday to Saturday and from 12pm to 6pm on Sunday.
The new restaurant will feature an expansive wrap-around counter where the chefs can serve customers two different versions of noodles, beef noodle soup, xiao chi and Bao.
The news website reported that the menu at this location will include “typical dishes”, such as spiced beef butter and fermented greens; Taipei-style broth with slow-braised beef cheek; and Tainan-style broth with white soy and poached beef rump.

Other exclusive dishes on the menu will include sanbei tofu bao and crispy cheese croquettes with hot sauce and pickled plum ketchup.
The menu at Bao Battersea is inspired by the existing Bao Noodle Shop in Shoreditch, London, which opened in July 2021.
The space will also have a private KTV room for customers to host karaoke parties for up to ten diners.
Bao co-founder Erchen Chang said: “As we all have backgrounds in art and design, it feels very special to be opening Bao Battersea in such an iconic building.
“Our KTV room in particular feels like a glimpse into an imagined future from the 1960s, with references to the Power Station’s industrial past, as well as one of our favourite films, Playtime.
“The menu reflects the comforting soup bowls that we grew up with in Taiwan, along with some exciting new dishes that we’ve been working on behind the scenes.”
