It has been announced by Hammerson that a Thai cuisine chain, Thaikhun and Italian pizza restaurant, Franco Manca are the latest restaurants to join WestQuay Watermark in Southampton.
It will be the first move into the City of Southampton for both restaurant chains.
Previously announced restaurants include Five Guys, Byron Burgers, Nando’s, Jamie’s Italian, TGI Friday’s, Wahaca and Zizzi, as well as a 10 screen cinema by Showcase Cinema and a bowling alley by Hollywood Bowl.
Ian Leigh, Managing Director at Thaikhun has commented: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing Thaikhun to the coastal city of Southampton. 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.
