Tattu Leeds Unveils Stunning Refurbishment

The modern Chinese restaurant Tattu, situated in the heart of Leeds, has reopened to debut their brand new space Tattu Leeds, the beautiful restaurant inspired by the flavours and ingredients of modern Chinese cooking, reopened its doors on July 4th, following an interior redesign led by a nine month creative process to bring a reimagined, reenergized space to life.

Taking inspiration from traditional Chinese architecture, Tattu Leeds closed its doors on 17th June to complete an aesthetic overhaul, giving the inimitable restaurant a fresh look and feel as they enter their seventh year in the city. Known internationally for their stunning design, attention to detail and innovation in the hospitality industry, the team are excited to unveil their new look to the city, once again proving that you can never touch a true original, albeit some will always try and emulate!

The independent group behind Tattu, Permanently Unique, upholds the highest standards to ensure that the customer journey in each of their locations remains unique, and as such undertook an extensive project to transform the space. Tattu Leeds’ growth is in part accredited to the support of the people of Leeds and so the business is committed to reinvesting into the city to deliver the same quality of product in a completely new and unique space.

Founders Adam and Drew Jones sought inspiration from the grandeur of traditional Chinese architecture, weaving a tapestry of blues, golds, and reds – royal hues that exude an air of regal sophistication. The bespoke furniture pays homage to the timeless craftsmanship of Chinese artisans, with dark timber, and marble patterns adding a touch of luxury. A layer of enchantment is embodied through spirit animals that come to life on hand-painted murals, an ode to Chinese storytelling.

The lighting, inspired by traditional Chinese lanterns, feature hanging pendant lights made with crackled, smoked glass casting a warm glow over tables. The private dining room features timber slat screens with heavy satin curtains to provide privacy whilst upholstered walls create an inviting feel.

The menus at Tattu Leeds, curated by kitchen team Matt Downes, Head of Culinary, and Thomas Southern, Group Operations Chef, feature new dishes to celebrate the reopening such as; Char Siu Pork two ways with nashi pear and crackling, Crispy Kataifi King Prawns with mango and sweet chilli and Lemon Baby Chicken with toasted sesame, ginger and soybean alongside well loved classics including Caramel soy aged beef fillet with shiitake, ginger and asparagus, Lobster and Prawn toast with sesame and sweet and sour chilli sauce.

‘We are delighted to take on this project to create an incredible new space for the city to enjoy. Our business is called Permanently Unique Group because we are firmly committed to delivering one off experiences for our guests. Imitation is of course a form of flattery however elements of the original TATTU designs have been replicated by other restaurants both locally and globally and it is therefore crucial as a market leading business to keep refining our products and interiors to keep the experience exciting. We sourced all of our products from the Far East where the craftsmanship and understanding of this style of product is unrivalled. As such, we were thrilled to reopen on 4th of July and welcome guests to celebrate the new space at Tattu Leeds’, says co-founder Drew Jones.
