Chinese restaurant Mao Tai is opening its second site in London’s Chelsea, with interiors by Robert and Josyane Young, who designed Mao Tai’s first London site in Parsons Green. The interiors feature ‘sleek’ furniture designs set against contemporary colours to create an ‘informal elegant’ look, says Mao Tai owner Mark Barnett. ‘I wanted to create a Chinese restaurant with a brasserie atmosphere,’ he says.
