Sushi robots are more at itsu store of the future

Sushi robots are more at itsu store of the future

Itsu store on Great Portland Street opens

Itsu have opened the first of its robotic ‘store of the future’ on Great Portland Street, catering for a post-Covid world.  The store has been designed to reduce touchpoints across the board, featuring cashless kiosk screens, sushi robots from Japan and a central collection point rather than communal fridges.

To reduce multi handling by staff and customers, the store offers cashless kiosk screens for ordering and a central collection point rather than fridges to reduce multi handling. Customers can then customise their favourite itsu dishes through the digital order points.

As well as a new regime for food serving over 70% of dishes are under 500 calories. All hot dishes will be steamed  and include strong flavours with steamed wholegrain brown rice bowls, noodle bowls with fragrant Asian-inspired broths, detox soups and our steamed gyoza. 35 dishes are available on the menu; all have the ability to go light with vegetables and protein only options. Plus over a third of the menu is now plant-based.
