The Chinese restaurant chain still has one branch in on Morrison Street and says it plans to expand across the UK.

Tom Kitchin said: “The new space will allow us all to grow. For me and our team in the kitchen, it will mean more space and more importantly, the dining space will be more comfortable for our guests. It’s a really exciting time for us all.”
