CHŪŌ Sushi: The new Shoreditch spot serves sushi on a monorail 



The cool concept includes tech-savvy features.

CHŪŌ Sushi is going full steam ahead. The new Japanese restaurant has opened in East London and prides itself on being home to Europe’s first sushi monorail. Dishes are served on a track, with stops at each table. So, chopsticks and cameras at the ready, as this tech-tastic concept awaits. 

In Japanese, chou translates to centre or central. CHŪŌ Sushi’s Head Chef Armanto Tsatsa, who was previously at Lucky Cat and Miro Mayfair, is behind the menu. Diners can take their pick from 40 different types of sushi. 

CHŪŌ Sushi’s menu spans starters, gunkan, futomaki, hosomaki, nigiri, sashimi, tataki, uramaki and yakitori. The starters include Salted and Spicy Edamame, Nasu Dengaku, Prawn Tempura and Vegetable Tempura. The nigiri is served in two pieces, tataki is served in four pieces and sashimi is served in three pieces. Signature rolls include Dragon Roll, Green Roll and Special Roll.

CHŪŌ Sushi is a casual spot with high tables. The décor includes a black exterior with floor-to-ceiling windows. The décor includes bright lime green walls and tables. Plus, each table includes a letterbox-style feature and diners can put dirty plates into the automatic hole, which are then taken to the kitchen to be cleaned. 

London is filled with exciting new restaurant openings. The South American restaurant Fazenda has opened in Bishopsgate. Plus, Paro is opening in Covent Garden, and 64 Goodge Street is opening in Fitzrovia. 

CHŪŌ Sushi is open from Monday to Saturday from noon to 10pm. Visitors can grab and go between noon and 3pm from Monday to Friday.
