Newcastle-based Geisha, Pan-Asian bar and restaurant has secured “significant investment” for expansion. The venue, in Sandyford Road, has a Japanese garden inspired interior that includes lanterns hanging from the ceiling. A spokeman said: “We’re extremely happy to announce Geisha, the most Instagram-able restaurant in the north east, has secured significant investment from private equity to open restaurants and venues throughout the UK! We plan to give the rest of the country the full Geisha experience.”
Geisha began as a takeaway service during the third Covid-19 lockdown in 2021 and opened the bar and restaurant in April that year. It launched a “home experience” delivery service from a location in Benton in September 2022.
