Visit Lu Ban Kitchen

When you order Chinese food from Lu Ban Kitchen for home delivery, you are ordering Lu Ban Restaurant food that has been prepared and cooked according to the same values and respect for Chinese culture and authenticity. The dishes are prepared by chefs in the Lu Ban Restaurant kitchen, chilled then frozen to maintain their freshness, then sent to you by overnight courier with simple to follow instructions on re-heating for eating.

Learning and experiencing the true flavours of China, wherever you are in mainland UK, is part of our food education mission.
