New Shanghai Oriental collaborates with Jimmy Lee


Bothwell’s Shanghai Teahouse has opened a new sister Cantonese restaurant in Larkhall called Shanghai Oriental.

The menu has been a collaboration with celebrity Chef, Jimmy Lee, who also owns Glasgow’s Lychee Oriental. Jimmy, a regular chef on ITV’s This Morning show, has spent months teaching the Shanghai Oriental kitchen staff and helping to design a menu that combines traditional flavours with modern cooking techniques.

Chef Jimmy Lee said, “I’ve been a chef for over 20 years, and it’s been an honour to mentor the Shanghai Oriental kitchen team as they open their doors in Larkhall. The restaurant’s cuisine features Chinese and Southeast Asian meals, with organic products used whenever possible. In addition, the crew here strives to combine the best in hygiene, food sourcing, culinary skills, and service.”

The former Royal Bank of Scotland building on Union Street has been transformed into a 65 seated restaurant offering “authentic Chinese food straight from Shanghai” and includes private dining and takeaway options.
