As well as being able to sit inside the restaurant, GDK Metrocentre will offer a takeaway and delivery service via the GDK app, Deliveroo, UberEats and Just East.

Noah Knapton, asset manager at Sovereign Centros from CBRE, has welcomed GDK to the Metrocentre.

He added: “GDK’s new site at Metrocentre continues to demonstrate the pull we have to international operators, delivering choice across a critical mass of global and independent restaurants.

“Sitting alongside the likes of Five Guys, Slim Chickens, and Wingstop, GDK will provide a tried and tested grab-and-go offer, and one that will no doubt hit the right notes for our visitors as we continue to build a solid F&B line-up in Yellow Mall.”
