Asian street food concept Chi, which has plans to grow to 20 sites by 2025, has opened in Derby for its tenth site. The brainchild of Aidan Tjinakiet and Lamen Reddy, the concept has launched the grab-and-go site on level two of the Derbion shopping centre.

The company operates four sites under its larger restaurant format – in Bournemouth, Huntingdon, Rushden Lakes and London’s New Oxford Street. It also operates five other sites under its smaller grab-and-go format – in Basingstoke, Cambridge, Eastbourne, Norwich and Watford. Chi was launched at The Grafton shopping centre in Cambridge in March 2019.

The menu offers “Asian street food with a modern twist served on a base of bao, banh mi, noodles or rice with a wide range of snacks and sides”.
