Parts of our Street Food menu are inspired by the coastal areas of Thailand so we are looking forward to bringing something fresh and different to the city.”

Sarah Fox, Head of Restaurants and Leisure at Hammerson, said: “It is great news that WestQuay Watermark is set to welcome Franco Manca and Thaikhun to Southampton. They are great additions to the restaurants already secured and further strengthen the scheme’s appeal as the South Coast’s leading leisure, dining and retail destination.”

Franco Manca, founder Giuseppe Mascoli further added: “We are delighted to be working with Hammerson and to be opening in Southampton, an already great city, that will be further enhanced by this development – making it a natural choice for our third opening outside of London.”

Thaikhun plans to occupy a 290 square meter unit on the upper promenade, while Franco Manca will take up a unit on the lower promenade, with a total floor space of 130 square meters.
