Many North West Londoners have missed the much loved Oriental Centre and its great food hall, situated on the Edgware Road in Colindale.  We are pleased to hear that on 26th June, Bang Bang Oriental will open on its former site, which closed in 2008. Opened in 1997 the famed Oriental City was a thriving food destination offering a variety of cuisines.  It also played host to all manner of festivities and was famed for its Chinese New Year celebrations, in the UK only rivalled by Chinatown in the West End. We whiled away many a happy day eating, drinking and participating in events at the centre and afe genuinely very excited at the plans. 

It will open as ‘Bang Bang Oriental Food Hall’, which translates as ‘Good Good Oriental Food Hall’ in Mandarin. The venue, which will be open all day from 11am until 10pm, will be located next to Morrisons and will share the car parking facility. It will celebrate Asia’s vibrant culture with 33 individual kiosks offering an eclectic mix of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Indian, Vietnamese, Singaporean, Taiwanese and Malaysian cuisine. This sophisticated and affordable food court, seating up to 450 guests, will bring the energy and authentic vibe of an Asian Street Food Market to the area.

 At the Barnet Eye we are always pleased to give a big plug for new and exciting businesses that tickle our fancy (note: we don't get paid to place blogs, we do it because its good for our neighbourhood for places like this to succeed, but if they want to give us a free slap up meal, it would be rude to say no! ;) )
