Intoku started as a small stall in Manchester, the perfect place for Greg and Mia to showcase their unique interpretation of Japanese street food. Their main goal was to create a Japanese restaurant that everyone could enjoy. They started with Japanese street food, but made plans to serve Sushi, Robata and Pan-Asian as soon as they had their own restaurant.
After growing the brand and gathering experience for eight years; in 2019 the couple finally decided to take the jump and move into a brick-and-mortar restaurant. Intoku’s first location opened in Arndale Market, Manchester, one of the most iconic markets in the North West. The restaurant quickly became a hotspot for foodies in the city.
After a few months of successful trading, in March 2020, Greg and Mia decided to take the next big step of closing down their Manchester location and open new restaurants in London and Windsor. Intoku Windsor was opened in September 2020, with Intoku Chelsea opening soon after in October. Three partners now own the business, with the next location in Weybridge, Surrey expected soon.
