The recent weather has been unseasonably chilly, but the good folk at P.F Chang’s Asian Table are ready to warm your hearts with Sakura springtime vibes. Back again until 31st May, their delightfully floral pop-up dedicated to Hanami, the Japanese tradition of Sakura blossom spotting is guaranteed to turn the pages of Instagram pink this season. We took a VIP client to experience the pop-up and their delicious Pan-Asian cuisine.

P.F Chang’s Asian Table lies just a few short steps from Leicester Square station. This popular Asian venue features a buzzing restaurant and an intimate basement level space, which is where the pop-up is housed. The room has been lovingly decorated with branches and waves of soft pink blossoms, immersing guests in a soothing environment that begs to be photographed. In keeping with the sunning décor, they’ve crafted a range of Sakura inspired cocktails for refreshing springtime sipping. We took our place among the petals to sample their delicious menu.

We remembered their Dynamite Shrimp from our last visit and couldn’t resist another helping. Encased in a light Tempura batter and tossed in a piquant Sriracha aioli, they were as good as we remembered. A selection of Sushi came freshly prepared and decorated as colourfully as our surroundings. The ingredients were tasty and well combined. We also enjoyed an aromatic dish of Mongolian Beef with a glaze of sweet soy and garlic, plus Chang’s Spicy Chicken, served with a sweet chilli sauce and green onion. After all that fire, we cooled our palettes with a fittingly pink dessert of The Sakura Tree cheesecake, which came with hints of citrus and served with cherries, shortbread and chocolate for a decadent finish.
