Whitley bay is set to have it’s very own restaurant offering the best of Eastern and Western Cuisine.
And now it will be opening its fourth eatery in North Tyneside, after two leading entrepreneurs bought up a franchise.
Tiger Bills is set to open its 95 cover restaurant at Whitley Road, Whitley Bay in early October, bringing its unique mix of fusion cuisine to the region for the first time.
Restauranteur Mustaque Rahman and business partner Istiaq Hasan came across the chain and recognised that there was nothing like it in the North East.
Mustaque said: “This is a growing brand and we thought it would be perfect for us as there really is nothing else like it.”
The men have invested more than £80,000 to convert the former Italian restaurant and will be creating more than ten jobs when fully operational.
Both Mustaque and Istiaq are qualified solicitors but have put their legal careers on hold to concentrate on ensuring the restaurant is a success.
Diners can pick from a particular cuisine or mix and match to create a unique dining experience.
The Thai menu includes soups, curries and stir fries, drawing their inspiration from Thai street food while the Western-style grill includes everything from ribs to steaks.
The restaurant will also use only Halal meat, with beef or lamb used as a substitute for pork in all dishes.
