JKS Restaurants announces a second Arcade Food Hall

JKS Restaurants has announced that it will launch a second Arcade Food Hall next year. The new food hall will sit at the centre of Battersea Power Station and, at an impressive 24,000 square feet, it will be almost double the size of the original at Centre Point.


To recap, the original Arcade Food Hall features nine JKS brands, including flagship Thai restaurant Plaza Khao Gaeng, which is headed up by chef Luke Farrell. Other offerings include North Indian street food from Hero, Indonesian street food from Bebek! Bebek! and sushi from Sushi Kamon (read our guide to Arcade Food Hall for the full list). Thanks to the nature of this large, communal space, the food hall doubles as an events venue, playing host to bottomless lunches, parties and other celebrations.

The news of JKS' involvement with the power station couldn't come at a better time. Amidst the decade-spanning redevelopment of Battersea Power Station, there was some initial disappointment at the original food line-up, which included familiar chains such as Starbucks and Joe & the Juice. The group hasn’t announced much yet, but it has said it will bring three standalone restaurants and a bar alongside the various street food stalls. So far, another Thai restaurant from Luke Farrell has been confirmed, as well as a sixth site for the ever-popular BAO.

JKS Restaurants, which was founded in 2008 by siblings Jyotin, Karam and Sunaina Sethi, operates 28 brands in London. These include Indian restaurants Trishna, Gymkhana and Brigadiers, relaxed sites like Berenjak and Hoppers, and more high-end restaurants such as Kitchen Table, Lyle’s and BiBi. They also manage two pubs, The Cadogan Arms and The George.

Regarding the announcement of a second Arcade Food Hall, Karam said: 'We will be creating a number of exciting new brands which showcase even more global cuisines, while also expanding and developing some of our existing Arcade brands, to create a food and drink destination south of the river worth travelling for.'

Elsewhere, in an effort to mitigate the staffing crisis many are facing, JKS is also launching a new Apprenticeship Academy.
