A Unique Chinese Restaurant in The Heart of Liverpool

Lu Ban is not your average Chinese restaurant. We offer a unique dining experience not found in traditional Chinese Restaurants in Liverpool. We have been inspired by the regional specialities from one of China’s important culinary centres, Tianjin.

The infusion of flavours found in Tianjin combined with their unique emphasis on indulgent cuisine inspired us to create Lu Ban, a fabulous fine dining experience in the heart of Liverpool.

Liverpool was chosen as the first-ever Lu Ban location because, like Tianjin, it has an immense sense of community, is founded on great traditions and also has a really vibrant, burgeoning food scene.

The Lu Ban Experience

The Lu Ban Experience is centred on our unique blend of cuisine, presentation and service to create a truly authentic Chinese restaurant experience. Allowing you to explore the taste of Orient like never before with our xiao panzi, or small plate, dining experience. We have combined authentic Chinese food with an unmatched fine dining experience to create a unique Chinese Restaurant experience in Liverpool.

We have taken influence from the Tianjin region for our cuisine, where the custom is to eat the right food in the right season has existed for a long time. Our Executive Head Chef, Dave Critchley, undertook numerous research visits to the region, where he explored the culture and passion the region has for food. His studies under master Tianjin chefs led him to create a menu that includes an array of seafood, meat, and vegetable dishes designed for you and your guests to share. 

Each of our beautifully presented authentic food, all prepared using traditional Chinese methods by our master chefs.
