AN Asian inspired restaurant chain will be opening its doors in Reading Gate Retail Park next Monday.

Itsu is excited to welcome customers on Monday, August 9, offering delicious, healthy and quality fast food options for lunch and dinner.

To celebrate the launch, the first 50 people in the queue will receive £10 worth of Itsu money to spend inside.

The new restaurant is the first ever full dine-in concept in the country for the Itsu chain.

Unlike every other Itsu store in the country, the full dine-in menu will be served in traditional ceramic dishes to create an authentic and sophisticated evening atmosphere.

The restaurant is ideal for date night, family dining or a meal out with friends.

Julian Metcalfe, founder of itsu, said: “The new dine-in concept is a really exciting venture for Itsu and we’re so excited for it to open in the Reading Gate Retail Park.

“With restrictions easing, there is pent up demand for eating out and we want to offer healthy food options that aren’t expensive. With meals available from £7, the new contemporary dining experience is perfect for family dining, friendship catchups and romantic dates."

The new dine in concept also comes with an exciting new menu, with mouth-watering dishes including; warm spicy edamame, steamed and served with spicy chilli oil and rock sea salt, sharing bowls that are perfect for evening dining like ithai noodles and sushi and sashimi, plus a selection of little rice’bowls that are a children friendly size of the hot menu.

Alongside the succulent savoury dishes, Itsu has added nine fro-yo flavours to tantalise the tastebuds. From a classic naked fro-yo and rich chocolate chip, right through to a caramel gummy bear flavour for those with a sweet tooth, the fro-yo selection is marvellously moreish and will satisfy anyone’s taste preferences.

As well as providing delicious food, the new store will be opening up 30 job positions within the local community.
