Kuti’s Brasserie opens new restaurant at The Royal Pier, Southampton
Kuti’s Brasserie is excited to finally re-open at the historic Royal Pier in Southampton.
A five-month refurbishment has seen the entire building undergo a full renovation. No detail has been left unturned, from the toilets, flooring and curtains every item has been refurbished to the highest standard by Mr Kuti to restore the historic Royal Pier to its former glory
The two-story property has four dining areas with 110 covers on the ground floor; 60 on the first floor; 30 upstairs in the Chandelier Cocktail Bar; and 60 additional seats on the outdoor rooftop terrace, with views across Southampton Water. The rooftop bar is popular with tourists and locals watching the cruise ships depart from the port a stones throw away.
Kuti’s Brasserie is on the former site of Royal Thai restaurant, which occupied the venue for 10 years. Kuti’s Brasserie is owned by restaurateur Kuti Miah, 60, who works the restaurant’s front of house. Kuti’s Brasserie was formerly located in Southampton’s Oxford Street, until it was closed by fire in April.
Mr Kuti has recruited Ravi Roa, formerly of the Michelin-starred Vineet Bhatia, as his executive chef. Roa expects to introduce an haute Indian cuisine menu, to sit alongside traditional curry house favourites.
