Located in the former Cains Brewery, the Lu Ban’s interiors, like the food, have been designed to blend elements of the modern with the traditional. Classical Chinese art sits alongside features of the raw industrial heritage of the brewery, creating an atmosphere that’s both chic and authentic.
For an intimate dining experience the Tianjin private dining room is perfect for gatherings of 10-12 people around a large central dining table with a lazy Susan to rotate and share the food among your guests. The quiet room is also ideal for corporate meetings when exclusivity and privacy are required.
For smaller special occasions, The Chef’s Table offers an exclusive dining experience for four to six diners that enables them to observe the inner-workings of the Lu Ban kitchen complete with all the smells and sounds of the team at work. You and your guests will also be able to chat directly to the chefs to get an exclusive insight into the thoughts, process and stories behind all of the dishes they present you.
For an even more interactive experience, The Food Lab is a fun and immersive private dining experience for up to 12 guests that enables you to work alongside one of the expert chefs to transform an array of unusual ingredients into authentic delectable dishes that you can then enjoy together at a communal table. This is the perfect event space for an aspiring cook or just those looking for a more dynamic dining experience.
Elsewhere, for a more relaxed feel, the restaurant's Wine Room can also be exclusively hired and Lu Ban’s sommelier will be on hand to impart expert advice that is sure to delight oenophiles and novices alike. For full privacy, the area which has capacity for 14 people can be discreetly closed off, or you may choose to enjoy the view of the restaurant from within your exclusive area.
