Ginza, situated in Wellingborough Road, opened earlier this month and includes two levels of seating for 120 people as well as a third floor with three karaoke rooms.

Manager Lance Pang said he was hoping to bring something slightly different to the culinary scene in Northampton.

He said: “This is true, authentic Japanese food. It is all cooked fresh in open kitchens. You can see the sushi chef creating the orders, nothing is frozen.”

An official opening event was held when customers were invited to watch, and take part in, a ‘dragon dance’, which is traditionally performed to mark the Chinese New Year.
