Controversial New Hands Off! restaurant by tastecard launches in London


tastecard, has launched its first pop-up restaurant in London. The ‘Hands Off!’ restaurant allows the evening to be taken care of entirely with servers feeding restaurant goers and, helping them out with a paper straw.

This experience is inspired by the Bangkok tradition of guests being honoured, treated with the upmost respect and notably, served by the hosts.

The restaurant features a set tasting menu brought by partner restaurant Feng Sushi, including Nippon ‘mock’ duck (a Chinese pancake, with cucumber, spring onion and caramelised tofu and hoisin sauce), salmon, tuna and Japanese omelette nigiri and vegetarian rolls. For dessert, guests will be fed Mochi, a Japanese rice cake in chocolate and strawberry cheesecake flavours.

The ‘Hands Off!’ restaurant will run for one week only this summer to celebrate tastecard’s app re-launch available for download on iOS and Android. Since its inception as tastelondon in 2006, tastecard offers members 50% off food and 2 for 1 meals at 6,000+ restaurants including Feng Sushi, PizzaExpress, Byron, Zizzi, Absurd Bird and more.

Matt Turner, Founder of tastecard, said: “tastecard, the mighty black and green card, always knows where to take its members. Whether they want to save on food, cinema or days out; we’ve got plenty of discounts on offer. With this restaurant, tastecard is allowing customers to enjoy a unique dining experience.”

The ‘Hands Off!’ restaurant trial is running until 14th June in London.
