YORKSHIRE Indian restaurant chain Akbars is opening its tenth restauarant with a £1.2m investment.
Akbars is to open in Newcastle in the new City Quadrant development on St James Boulevard in January.
The 300-seat venue will also boast banqueting facilities.
Established in Bradford in 1995, Akbars has restaurants throughout the North of England and the Midlands including Leeds, Manchester, York, Sheffield, Middlesbrough and Birmingham.
Akbars’ managing director Shabir Hussain said: “The launch of our tenth restaurant in a popular development like City Quadrant is an exciting one and brings us a step closer to achieving our long term vision of taking our style of food and service across the UK.”
Commercial property solicitor Simon Mydlowski, of law firm Gordons, advised Akbars on the move.
Mr Mydlowski said: “It’s great to see Akbars continue to go from strength-to-strength. Shabir and his team have deservedly earned themselves a reputation for providing high quality cuisine in vibrant venues and this has helped underpin Akbars’ continued growth. We wish them every success with their Newcastle venture.”
