A NEW Turkish restaurant is readying to open on Bold Street this summer.
Akasya, which will be over two floors in the former Giancarlo Ricci building, will be able to offer 300 covers.
Owner Yunus Emre Ugur said: “We are getting everything ready for May and our team is looking forward to welcoming diners to Akasya to sample our creative cuisine and enjoy our relaxed vibe.
“Bold Street was my first choice for Akasya. The location makes it central and easy to access, right at the heart of the city’s shopping, leisure and entertainment areas. We really look forward to meeting everyone over the summer, in a city known for its love of dining out.”
