Asia HouseAsia House occupies a Grade II* listed building, originally planned by Robert and James Adam as part of the Duke of Portland's Marylebone Estate in the 1770s. By 1775, however, the Adams' attention had turned to the creation of Portland Place, and neo-classical architect John Johnson took over the site, erecting the magnificent townhouse that now exists. The rooms retain many of their original features %u2013 including bookcases designed by Sir John Soane and plaster cornicing. Other parts of the building, including the café and gallery where regular exhibitions are, have been modernised in line with English Heritage recommendations. The spaces available for hire include three 'Fine Rooms', the Library, and Gallery, all of which can be used for a variety of functions. The Cafe t offers a pan-Asian menu including dishes from northern India and Goa, South-east Asia, China and Japan.
