Sticks'n'Sushi will be opening its newest UK restaurant in Richmond in May.

Opening Sunday 5 May, Sticks'n'Sushi will be the latest addition to Richmond's popular high street and busy community, bringing its unique combination of sushi and yakitori-sticks.

The restaurant will be located in the building where House of Fraser used to be, formerly Dickins and Jones department store.

Guests at the new Richmond restaurant will receive a warm 'irasshaimase' (welcome) before sitting down to enjoy the expertly crafted dishes, made using only top quality ingredients.

Sticks'n'Sushi caters to all tastes, including those who don't eat fish, with a menu including plant-based options such as the Kinoko Katzu, Eringi, Green Gate and the Kyoto Non Stop, as well as a selection of desserts.

The extensive Kampai menu includes signature house cocktails, wine, beer, spirits and sake. As with all Sticks'n'Sushi restaurants, the new Richmond one will embody the traditional Japanese concept of Omotenashi, which is to wholeheartedly look after each and every guest.

Andreas Karlsson, Sticks'n'Sushi Group CEO, said: "We're so excited to bring our newest restaurant to Richmond, building our presence in South-West London and welcoming a new team to the Sticks'n'Sushi family.

"We have long admired this historic town, since our first restaurant in Wimbledon in 2012, we are delighted to open in such an iconic building. Sticks'n'Sushi Richmond will offer the perfect spot for locals and visitors to the area as well as gatherings big and small."

Sticks'n'Sushi Richmond has been designed by Berlin-based architects Diener & Diener to ensure guests feel at home in their surroundings. The restaurant's design incorporates nods to its location, while the interior takes inspiration from Richmond's tight-knit and lively community.

Located on the corner of George Street and King Street, the site was built as a Dickins and Jones department store in 1968, and more recently housed the retailer House of Fraser until 2020, which ended a long and proud chapter in Richmond's retail history.

When guests enter, they will meet the space in its centre on a diagonal walkway, which divides the restaurant in two. The layout is designed to encourage guests to flow through the space like the nearby River Thames, while the design captures a balance of Japanese minimalism and Scandinavian elegance.

Originating in Copenhagen, Sticks'n'Sushi is one of Denmark's longest-established and most loved restaurant groups. Founded by half-Danish, half-Japanese brothers Jens and Kim Rahbek and Thor Andersen, today, the group consists of 27 restaurants across Copenhagen, Berlin and the UK.

In line with the new opening on Sunday 5 May, Sticks'n'Sushi will be celebrating Japanese Children's Day 'Kodomo no Hi' by offering complimentary bento boxes for kids (with a paying adult) across all restaurants. Honouring its heritage and encouraging families to pray for the health and happiness of their children giving back to loyal, returning and new customers.

Richmond will be the company's 13th UK restaurant and promises to bring Sticks'n'Sushi's unique flavours and dining experience to the neighbourhood.
