Hakkasan, the international restaurant group backed by Tasameem, a property arm of the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, has closed Chrysan, its fine dining Japanese restaurant in the City, six months after opening.

In a statement, the company said: “Hakkasan Group has ceased trading the Japanese restaurant concept, Chrysan, and is considering options for the site in Broadgate West.

“Following the success of HKK, which launched adjacent to Chrysan last December, it is evident that there is a strong demand for Chinese concepts both in the City as well as Greater London. Hakkasan Group will retain and employ as many of the Chrysan staff as possible at its London restaurants.”
