Benihana to enter Scotland with new Glasgow location

US-based restaurant company Benihana is set to open a new location in Glasgow, the company’s first international venture into Scotland.

US-based restaurant company Benihana is set to open a new location in Glasgow, the company’s first international venture into Scotland.

The 400m² restaurant can accommodate more than 100 guests and will feature a range of menu choices, including Hibachi steak, chicken and shrimp, sushi and sashimi.

It will also house a bar area offering small dishes, premium sakes and beverages, as well as a cocktail menu.

“As the first restaurant to open in more than 20 years in the UK, it is a milestone in our growth strategy for Benihana.”

Benihana managing director Richard Mackay said: “We are excited to confirm the new restaurant in Glasgow will open in early 2019. As the company moves into an exciting new era, guests will see a beautiful new design concept that marries authentic Japanese visuals with a modern palette and texturised materials.

“As the first restaurant to open in more than 20 years in the UK, it is a milestone in our growth strategy for Benihana. This is an important period as the prised restaurant looks to evolve, both through new bricks and mortar, as well as culinary experience.”

The announcement follows the recent acquisition of a 75% stake in Benihana by Asian hospitality, lifestyle and restaurant firm Minor International in April this year.

The restaurant chain currently operates three restaurants in the UK, as well as 16 international restaurants across Europe, Asia, North America and the Middle East.
