The much anticipated Tattu restaurant officially opened its doors to the public with a ‘pay as you feel’ charity dinner which raised more than £5,000 for Leeds-based charity, Simon on the Streets.

Local businesses and organisations were welcomed to the restaurant for a cocktail and dim sum canapé reception followed by a four-course dining experience, giving them a taste of what to expect at the modern Chinese restaurant.

Guests were asked to make a donation for the charity at the end of their meal, with all proceeds from the evening going directly to Simon on the Streets which provides critical frontline support for the homeless and rough sleepers in Leeds, Bradford and Huddersfield.

Adam Jones, owner and managing director of Tattu, said: ‘The night was a huge success. We’re truly overwhelmed with the generosity of our guests and the support we have received from everyone in the city so far. Working with Simon on the Streets was important for us. We wanted to give something back to the city that has embraced us with open arms and we’re looking forward to seeing how the donation will help the charity continue its important work. We are pleased to be opening our doors to the public on such a positive note and look forward to welcoming all guests to Tattu.’

Sue Oliver, development manager for Simon on the Streets, added: ‘We are absolutely delighted to have been selected by Tattu’s owners as the charity they wished to support with this fantastic launch evening. To receive such a significant sum from one event is a real boost to a very small and local charity, and we are very grateful to Tattu and their guests for their generosity. We wish Adam, Drew and their staff great success with this new venture in Leeds and hope that when their feet touch the ground, we will have the opportunity of developing a partnership with them which benefits us both and reinforces their position as a responsible business in our city centre community.’

Tattu opened in Minerva on East Parade in the city centre. For more information visit tattu.co.uk/leeds
