Sticks’n’Sushi, the Danish restaurant group known for its menu offering traditional sushi alongside grilled yakitori skewers, has announced that its fifth restaurant in London, and seventh in the UK, will open in Victoria on Friday 8 December.
The two-storey site in Sir Simon Milton Square will have two open-plan dining areas, on the ground and first floors, with the upper floor set under a canopy of arches reminiscent of monastic cloisters.
Presented in their unique ‘Photo Album’ style, Sticks’n’Sushi Victoria’s menu will naturally offer a wide variety of the eponymous dishes, from nigiri and yakitori which can be ordered by the single piece to deluxe sharing sets for two or more, as well as maki rolls, greens, salads and chirashi bowls.
True to Sticks’n’Sushi’s ethos of being ‘a sushi restaurant even for those who don’t like fish’, many meat dishes are available, including an indulgent Wagyu beef tartare, as well as vegetarian choices for every course – sticks, sushi and beyond.
A private dining room seating sixteen will welcome larger groups and special events, while the bar will provide anyone wishing to stop by simply for a coffee or a cocktail with a welcoming space in which to do so, without having to eat – unless of course they wish to!
Group COO Andreas Karlsson said, “For thousands of people every day, whether coming from near or very far, Victoria is their gateway to London - a city we have come to love as much as our home city of Copenhagen. We would be happy to think that before they start discovering London, they will first stop here for a taste of Tokyo, via Copenhagen - experiencing the world without even leaving SW1.'
Founded in a Copenhagen basement in 1994 by half-Danish, half-Japanese brothers Jens and Kim Rahbek and Thor Andersen, Sticks’n’Sushi has grown to include twelve restaurants in and around the Danish capital.
The first London restaurant, in Wimbledon, opened in 2012 and has since been joined by sites in Covent Garden, Greenwich, Canary Wharf and now, Victoria. Outside London, Cambridge and most recently Oxford followed, and in 2017 the first Sticks’n’Sushi in Germany opened in Berlin.
