The contemporary ‘kaiten’ (conveyor belt) Japanese restaurant K10 has been serving sushi to the City for 12 years but is now set to expand on its Copthall Avenue location with the launch of a second, larger restaurant on the nearby Appold Street.

Diners can choose from a great variety of both traditional and modern Japanese dishes which are colour-coded and range in price from £2 to £5.50 with the occasional special at £7.50. From the freshest salmon sashimi to seared sesame tuna served with miso and mustard vinaigrette, the K10 chefs use the highest quality ingredients in their combination of favours and textures.

Further hot dishes include a variety of katsu curries, chicken and salmon teriyaki served three ways, gyoza, crispy chicken karage, tempura and the restaurant’s legendary chilli baby squid. Fresh salads and delicious home-made desserts such as the refreshing and light green tea mousse, complete the line-up.

Setting itself apart from homogenous chains, K10 will prepare any bespoke dish, if the ingredients are available. It also has a ‘try before you buy’ policy, which allows diners to taste a dish and if they don’t like it, they won’t be charged for it. The new venue will also feature a take away unit serving a selection of freshly made, restaurant quality hot dishes, as well as a variety of sushi and sashimi sets and a corporate delivery arm too.

K10 was founded in 1999 by Christopher Kemper, Development Director of the original Poland Street Yo Sushi  who was also responsible for expanding the brand into Selfridges and Harvey Nichols. He was recently joined by restaurant consultant Maurice Abboudi. Expect further openings this year…
