Arcade Food Theatre opened in the Centre Point building to pretty big fanfare in 2019, with six kitchens plus an incubation space, three bars, a coffee and bakery counter, and residents including Tou by TATA Eatery, Pophams, Oklava and Chotto Matte. Arcade has been closed during the pandemic and when it reopens it’s gonna be a very different place as JKS Restaurants, the group behind the likes of BAO, Hoppers, Brigadiers, Gymkhana and Berenjak, have taken over the space.
The rebranded Arcade Food Hall will feature eight new kitchens, a mezzanine restaurant, a counter dining experience, a standalone bar and an outdoor dining space, with customers able to order food and drink from the different kitchens direct to their tables. No traders or restaurant brands have been revealed yet but we’re being promised regional Thai curries, Spanish tapas, Indonesian street food, Middle Eastern shawarma, North Indian fast food, American burgers and Japanese sushi, plus a provisions counter serving coffee, sandwiches and pastries AND an immersive dessert experience. Sounds like JKS have got another monster hit on their hands.
