Prince Harry’s fave club is opening a restaurant

Mahiki – the glitzy, tiki, star-spangled haunt of royals and ‘Made in Chelsea’ characters – is going west. Kensington High Street, to be precise, where it’s opening a new branch of the swanky nightclub, and it’s going to feature a restaurant. 

Opening this September and given the rather ignoble name of Pufferfish, the restaurant will be pan-Asian, with dishes including tuna tartare and salmon seared with a blowtorch at your table. There’s also a raw bar and a bottomless brunch offer running on the weekends. Trendy!

The idea is that this branch will be an altogether more grown-up joint than the Mayfair Mahiki from which Harry and Wills happily partied in their youth. But don’t panic: some things never change. Kensington’s Mahiki will have the same  ‘Polynesian Paradise’ theme as Mayfair (infamous ‘treasure chest’ cocktails included). Doesn’t that have a comforting, colonial ring to it?

Pufferfish opens at 2a Kensington High St, W8 4PT in September.
