Tattu offers a contemporary take on Chinese cuisine
It seems like ages ago that we exclusively revealed that Manchester’s upmarket Chinese restaurant Tattu has its sights set on expansion to Leeds, but more details - including photos of the restaurant and an openings date - have finally been revealed.
The artist impressions of the new restaurant will look familiar to anybody who’s seen the Manchester flagship; a dark dining room with subtle Chinese accents and references to body art in the decor, and a signature indoor cherry blossom tree - full of white blossom as a reference to Leeds’ white rose.
“This new venue has been created especially for the people of Leeds” says Adam Jones, managing director. “Each element, from the dishes on the menu to the beautiful cocktails, the crockery and glassware and the whole customer journey, has been carefully considered to deliver something we hope will be very special.”
As well as the restaurant itself, the menu will be tweaked to make the Leeds branch unique. Tattu’s menu will bring their modern take on Chinese dishes popular on the Manchester menu - such as Aberdeen Angus steak with shiitake, asparagus, and caramel soy - as well as seasonal additions like Cantonese BBQ Chicken and a take on the takeaway classic banana fritter dessert, with some options specific to Leeds, featuring locally-sourced produce
Not your typical rice, chips, and curry sauce Chinese then - that’s where the “Taste of Tattu” comes in handy. Available in the daytime alongside their renowned dim sum menu, it offers customers a two or three course set menu (priced at just under twenty and twenty-five quid respectively) with the choice of a few of the small plates and dishes from the wok that represent and introduce you to Tattu’s version of Chinese food.
Tattu is due to open in Minerva House on East Parade in June 2017.
