Satsuma serves up Japanese curry

Japanese restaurant Satsuma is reinventing itself to become one of London’s first Katsu curry specialists. The Soho venue is the only Japanese restaurant within the Royal China Group portfolio.

The sauce base will come in regular and spicy alternatives, to which customers can then add their own selection of meat, fish and vegetables.

The renovated interior will feature futuristic seating in cube pods. Each pod will accommodate four people and be enclosed on four sides, with windows in the roof to provide subtle lighting. The redesign will keep Satsuma’s original orange and grey colour scheme.

The restaurant will hold a two week soft opening from the middle of August, where diners can enjoy a 25% discount on their food and drink bill.

Curry is believed to have been introduced to Japanese cuisine in the 19th century by the British, who brought the dish over from India. Since then it has been adapted and become widespread across the country.
