Lu Ban was voted the Restaurant of the Year at the Liverpool City Region Tourism Awards in March 2022.
The stunning restaurant serves dishes with the flavours of Tianjin, China. Headed by Executive Chef Dave Critchley, the menus are a delicious selection of his favourite dishes inspired by and developed from his research and experiences of the northern Chinese region.

Our main restaurant space can be used for events where food and drink is served.
Our smaller private dining room spaces are ideal for meetings, dinners and special occasion events.
