The debut site for Cha Cha Moon, the Asian fusion noodle bar founded by Alan Yau, has been brought to the market.

The leasehold of the site in Kingly Court, off Carnaby Street, is being marketed by Christie & Co with offers in excess of £700,000 being sought, with an annual rent of £410,000.

The concept, owned by the Kout Group, has operated over a ground and first floor site since 2008.

In 2009, Yau said he saw the potential for 100 sites for the concept.

Simon Chaplin, head of restaurants at Christie & Co, said: “The Carnaby Street area has evolved into a destination retail and hospitality location which attracts some 44m visitors a year. Kingly Court is a great draw in its own right having been developed by the landlords, Shaftesbury Estates, into a multi-level dining venue with many new and innovative operators located within it.

“This is possibly one of the most exciting restaurant sites that has come onto the market in recent years – opportunities for operators to acquire premises in London’s West End are extremely scarce. We therefore expect high interest and fierce competition from both independent and corporate operators both nationally and internationally.”
