The Islington restaurant will offer dine-in, take-away and private catering

Danish Japanese restaurant group, Sticks’n’Sushi, will open its 14th UK location in Islington this September.

This marks the brand’s first venture into North London, as a part of Sticks’n’Sushi’s growth strategy to extend its reach into London’s residential neighbourhoods, following the successful opening of Richmond in May.

The Islington branch

The Islington venue is individual in design yet unmistakenly a Sticks’n’Sushi restaurant, the space features a large open plan dining room, kitchen counter, lounge and bar, along with outdoor seating.

The new 120-cover, double-fronted, 3,500 sq. ft restaurant will open seven days a week in the popular and vibrant dining destination of Upper Street, overlooking Islington Green.

The menu will serve the high-quality, fresh food for which the restaurant group is known, with the likes of modern sushi, salads and grilled sticks. The food menu is complemented by an extensive drinks offering, including cocktails, sake and Japanese teas.

Andreas Karlsson, Sticks’n’Sushi Group CEO comments: “We’re delighted to be bringing Sticks’n’Sushi and our exceptional guest experience to North London this September, creating 50 jobs locally for existing and new fishes to join the Sticks’n’Sushi family. Islington’s Upper Street is a prime location and bustling dining destination, a perfect addition for our energetic and contemporary brand.

"We look forward to welcoming the local community as well as attracting those from the nearby neighbourhoods of Hampstead, Belsize Park and Highgate.”
