Acting on behalf of Mama Lan, MKR Property have secured their 5th site with the Avant Garde development just off Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch. The Chinese Café which specialises in Beijing Streetfood and in particular handmade dumplings, evolved from founder Ning Ma’s north London supper club. With the assistance of her mother, Mama Lan and her father Papa Lan, the supper club was a real success and led to Ning opening her first site in Brixton.
With the previous tenant have gone into administration leaving an exceptionally well fitted 900 sq ft restaurant, this was an opportunity not to be missed for Mama Lan. MKR negotiated a new 15 year lease at a rent of £38,000 together with 6 months rent free. No premium was paid in the off market transaction.
Mama Lan are now open and trading well as are Smokestak a few doors down, another MKR acquisition.
