If you’ve been following us at House of Coco for a while, you’ll know our founder Laura Bartlett is a Leeds girl who just loves her city. One of the reasons why is that she just can’t get enough of the foodie scene. With plenty of choices already, the scene just got even bigger with the addition of a brand new restaurant, SAKKU, which has opened on St Peter’s square serving unlimited Japanese sushi and pan asian grill.
Last night our Editor-in-Chief Laura was at the Leeds restaurant for an exclusive launch night that saw press, celebrities and local influencers enjoy live music and entertainment as they were served a taster of SAKKU’s extensive menu. With vibes as high as the food standards, the restaurant launch was a real hit.
SAKKU is a Japanese inspired, ‘all you can eat’ which sees diners choose from 150 varied dishes to order straight to their table through the use of an electronic tablet. Firm favourites so far are the cured duck breast and the seabass sashimi.
The new concept is the latest offering from the team that brought the Brazilian Rodizio, Estabulo to town.
Rob Campbell, group CEO, said, “This has been a long time in the making and it’s amazing to see this concept brought to life. We always aim to offer an immersive dining experience and that’s exactly what we’ve done here. We hope that the people of Leeds will welcome SAKKU with open arms.”
What sets SAKKU apart from other venues in the area is that all sushi is prepared in front of diners eyes by the incredible, Chef Fern, who works with the freshest ingredients to create dishes that not only taste incredible, but resemble a work of art as they’re served upon huge wooden boats and beautiful ceramic bowls.
Chef Fern said, “I love seeing my customers take pictures of my sushi. For me, sushi should not just taste impeccable, but look it. I put everything into the dishes that I serve and I love that at SAKKU, customers will be able to see first hand the precision and detail that goes into making each dish.
The unlimited dining experience will set diners back just £35 on a weekend with prices lowering at lunchtimes and on weeknights.
SAKKU is now open to the public and hope to see the people of Leeds embrace this new experience.
