"A glorious Cantonese symphony."
-Evening Standard

"Duddell's has entered London's high-end
Cantonese restaurant category with distinct aplomb."


Duddell's London is the first restaurant of the Duddell's brand to open outside of Hong Kong where the original was founded in 2013. Set in the historic St. Thomas Church in the heart of London Bridge, minutes from Borough Market and The Shard, Duddell's London showcases authentic Cantonese cuisine and hand-crafted dim sum at the Restaurant and Asian-inspired cocktails at the Bar.

Heading up the kitchen is Chef Daren Liew who was previously Executive Sous Chef with the Hakkasan Group and comes with over 20 years of experience in Chinese cuisine.

Duddell's in Hong Kong was conceived to create a cultural and social destination for people with an appreciation for the arts, providing an inspiring backdrop where people could meet, eat, drink and socialise while surrounded by museum quality year-round art exhibitions.

As with its Hong Kong counterpart, Duddell's London will have a strong focus on its art programme and is set to become a destination for both foodies and art lovers alike.

"Doubting Thomas" is an exhibition that references the specific religious background and implications of Duddell's unique London location. Duddell's is housed in the historic former St. Thomas Church and surrounded by the many original features that survived through the passage of time. Thomas was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ in the New Testament, known as Doubting Thomas because he doubted the resurrection of Jesus.

Thomas was a sceptic who refused to believe without direct personal experience. It is only human to have a general questioning attitude or doubt towards knowledge or belief. Although it can be expanded to any number of topics such as politics and pseudoscience, scepticism is often directed at domains such as morality, religion, or knowledge, particularly in the context of philosophy in regard to how we conceive the world. If it is possible to deny knowledge or rational belief, should we suspend judgement on controversial matters as well? Incredulity is an indwelling human state and characteristic. Using Thomas's story as a point of departure, this exhibition wishes to explore "truth", and how it is understood and established.

"Doubting Thomas" is an exhibition of newly commissioned and existing work by internationally renowned artists including Jonathan Baldock, Suki Chan, Gordon Cheung, Aoife Collins, Gayle Chong Kwan and Tang Kwok-hin which will be showcased throughout the restaurant. The artists have been carefully chosen and were asked to respond to the story of Thomas and the history of Duddell"s as a former church
