Job Details

About us:

Tattu is an award-winning, independent, family-owned business founded in 2015 by two young brothers. The brand set out with a clear vision – to bring something unique and engaging to the restaurant industry making a permanent mark on the UK’s culinary scene. The word Tattu is derived from a combination of ‘Tattoo’ the art form that inspires our stunning interiors and ‘Tatau’ which is an ancient word from eastern culture that means to ‘make a mark’. Our aim was to build a customer experience around the brand that stimulates all senses – fusing quality and innovative Chinese cooking with beautiful and meaningful design. 

In autumn 2019, we will open our fourth site in Scotland’s majestic capital – Edinburgh. The restaurant will be located in the Mint Building which makes up one half of The Registers on the south-east corner of St Andrew Square.

We are looking to build an energetic team at all levels across the business from front-of-house and reservations to servers, bartenders and kitchen staff.

The role:

Tattu delivers contemporary Chinese cuisine, blending traditional flavours with modern cooking methods and exquisite presentation. It’s a high-intensity environment which demands the best from our team. We refuse to compromise our standards in the fast paced atmosphere our large cover days create.

  • Be the main contact for organising and executing private dining bookings and events for the unit from start to finish.
  • Be involved in guest show rounds, placing a strong emphasis on utilising the private dining spaces to maximum occupancy where possible.
  • This is an operational role and the candidate will be required to be present leading the team from the front, working a variety of shifts.
