We are proud to announce Ekachai restaurant is bringing South East Asia to Flat Iron Square with a specially designed rope-wrapped, bamboo-roofed, timber-clad kitchen serving authentic street food.
The Ekachai kitchen features a bespoke dumpling steamer, satay grill, stainless steel wok range and hammered metal cooking pot pendants that illuminate the service area. Their short menu is split into two sections with the best of classic Thai, Malay and Cantonese street food dishes focused on the wok cooking synonymous with hawker food from these regions. Additionally a regularly changing Specials board will offer diners continued variety suited to the season.

Ekachai was established in Liverpool Street in 1999 by schoolfriends Thomas Tjong and Sidney Tsang from Hong Kong who could not find their favourite streetfood dishes in London. Today they have three London restaurants (Liverpool Street, Wandsworth and Selfridges) and looking forward to bring their authentic dishes to the new development of Flat Iron Square feeding the Capital’s continued appetite for traditional Malay, Thai and Cantonese dishes.

“I wanted Londoners to be able to come to a place with a mix of great music, artisan food and bars, with a vibe of European urban outdoor markets and squares. A space that will keep evolving and visitors keep discovering. It is a large site so we are able to explore many things. We are looking at arts ideas and bringing in a flea market with vintage clothing and other interesting stalls. I started my first business, a mushroom farm, in these arches, so it is a fortunate and happy coincidence I am able to open them up again for a new venture following a great refurbishment by the Landlord, Network Rail”.
