Toro Dorado Quality Steaks has launched its first ever restaurant in the UK, following a £2.3m finance deal from HSBC UK.
The seven-figure finance package enabled Khalil Qaiser, shareholder and director of TDQ Steaks, to purchase a 3,200 square foot prime riverside property situated in the Corniche development on the Albert Embankment.
The London restaurant is the second in TDQ’s portfolio, following the opening of its Amsterdam restaurant in 1994 – now considered to be the number one premium steakhouse in the city.
TDQ has employed 25 new team members for the 120-seat restaurant which will serve the highest quality beef from around the world.
In addition, TDQ is one of the few companies licenced to import and distribute Japanese Kobe across Europe and will be one of only two restaurants in the UK serving the prime meat.
Mr Qaiser said: “Like Amsterdam, London is a melting pot of culture and diversity and that’s why we are so excited to now be welcoming customers to our second exclusive location, slap bang in the heart of the city.”
