Shaftesbury has announced that award-winning restaurant group, JKS Restaurants, has launched its debut pop-up, VIỆTPopulaire, offering street food classics at Chinatown London for a limited run until December 19th.

Located at 30 Rupert Street, VIỆTPopulaire’s 2,500 sq ft restaurant brings the convivial atmosphere of Vietnamese dining to the capital, with bánh mì taking centre stage on the menu alongside iconic Hanoi dishes such as Bò Né. Catering to 47 covers inside, with a further 16 outside, VIỆTPopulaire’s seven-week pop-up features a weekly bánh mì special, including a festive turkey ham edition, with duck liver parfait and tangerine jelly.

The group have held the site on Rupert Street since 2017, and VIỆTPopulaire signals a continued commitment to Chinatown London from the leading restaurant group. In true street style, the pop-up serves traditional Vietnamese food and drinks into the late hours, with last sittings at midnight each night.

Jyotin Sethi, Co-Founder & CEO at JKS Restaurants, commented: “Our first ever pop up, VIỆTPopulaire, transports guests to the streets of Hanoi. Bringing the concept to life and carefully curating the menu and the atmosphere has been an exciting challenge for our team; we hope Chinatown visitors enjoy the result as much as we do.” 


Julia Wilkinson, Restaurant Director at Shaftesbury, added: “Chinatown London has been designed to embrace discovery. VIỆTPopulaire’s nature of revolving specials and seven-week residency really builds on this, giving our visitors reasons to return to Chinatown London to explore and find something new. JKS Restaurants really understand the London market, so we look forward to seeing the reception for VIỆTPopulaire over the next few weeks.”


VIỆTPopulaire will open:

Wednesday: 6.00pm – midnight

Thursday – Friday: 12.00pm – 3.00pm + 6.00pm – midnight

Saturday: 12.00pm – midnight

Chinatown London  

China is changing and traditional values are being complemented by new ideals and trends, inspired by other parts of the Far East and the West.  This is influencing what Chinese people and visitors expect in Chinatown.  Shaftesbury understands this and is experiencing directly the evolution of China, spending time in its cities to see, taste and hear what is happening first hand.   


Whilst inherently Chinese, under Shaftesbury’s long-term curation and partnership with the community, Chinatown is evolving to reflect the changes occurring in the Far East, creating is a mix of tradition and modernism that makes cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Tokyo and Seoul some of the most exciting places in the world.  Centrally located and one of the best-connected destinations in the capital, Chinatown is served by many underground stations, as well as the Elizabeth line at Tottenham Court Road. 








Shaftesbury owns and manages a 16 acre property portfolio in the liveliest parts of London's West End.  The portfolio comprises of restaurants, cafés, pubs and shops, extending to apartments and offices in the highly popular, sought-after and prosperous locations of Carnaby, Seven Dials and Chinatown, together with substantial ownerships in East and West Covent Garden, Soho and Fitzrovia.  

All our properties are close to the main West End Underground stations, and within ten minutes’ walk of the two West End transport hubs for the Elizabeth Line, at Tottenham Court Road and Bond Street.
