Itsu in Richmond has reopened after a fire forced it to shut ten months ago.

The much-loved sushi restaurant first opened in 2014 to mile-long queues but had to close along with most of the high street.

Now, it’s back serving up Japanese-style dishes such as sushi, bao buns, gyoza and rice bowls.

Neil Miller, chief customer officer, said: “It’s been a long journey rebuilding our restaurant - we’ve been overwhelmed by local support and are delighted to be opening our doors with an even better menu and customer experience next week.”

Itsu Richmond now has new kiosks so that customers can browse the menu and order quicker than ever before.

There will also be itsu senseis on hand to guide people through the menu and answer any questions.

Check out the new range of food, including a variety of vegan stir-fry noodles, at the restaurant on George Street.

Most of the Asian-inspired food is under 500 calories and packed with vitamins, fibre and protein.

The majority is also under £7 and there’s a half price sale every evening to avoid food waste.

The new restaurant, which reopened on Friday July 22, is even offering delivery to Richmond park for picnics in the hot weather.
