LONDON EATERIES – Brazilian-Japanese restaurant group Temakinho is set to relaunch both its Tower Bridge and Old Compton Street venues this month

Temakinho launched in Italy in 2012 and today, has over 16 restaurants across Europe, with many more openings planned this year. The brand originally opened at 10 Old Compton Street in 2016, before adding One Tower Bridge to its ever-growing list of venues in 2019.  Tower Bridge will be opening in June with Old Compton Street open now for both indoor and outdoor dining.

Whilst the Tower Bridge site reopened between lockdowns last summer, The Old Compton street site was forced to close its doors completely. 

Things have looked very uncertain for the future of the group in London. However, thanks to the addition of two new partners, Hospitality Director at LXA Pete Warden and Posh Cockney CEO Liam Norval, Temakinho London is ready to bounce back, just in time for the relaxation of restrictions. 

Temakinho’s specialities come from the Nikkei tradition, a cuisine that historically originates from the encounter between Japanese tradition and South-American ingredients. In each one of Temakinho’s locations, the Japanese culinary tradition meets with the taste, colours and vibes of Brazil to the beat of jazz, samba and bossa nova.
