Delivery-only sushi concept Oro eyes expansion after launching first cloud kitchen

Premises in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are already secured.

Delivery-only sushi concept Oro is planning to extend its cloud kitchen network across London and overseas.

The concept, partly led by former Zuma global executive chef Anthony Garlando, recently opened its first cloud kitchen site in Wimbledon and claimed it has seen sales rise 30% week-on-week since its launch. The move also follows a trial run in Belgravia last year.

Founded by Garlando, Aware Hospitality founder Alexandre Santamaria, and Nick Yeatman, Oro is positioned to be focused on high-end sushi, featuring dishes including spicy bluefin tuna maki with chilli mayonnaise and shichimi pepper; prawn nigiri topped with macadamia and tahoon pesto; prawn and ginger gyoza accompanied with a rhubarb and tasmanian pepper berry sauce; and nori-crumbed lemon sole with crispy potato, black garlic mayonnaise and lemon.

Vegan options include avocado and cucumber maki; mochi flat bread with Australian bush sukkah and whipped tofu; and fried cauliflower served alongside XORO sauce and coconut tofu.

After securing 'substantial' investment for fast growth following its trial in Belgravia, the group said it has premises in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia already secured.

Oro is also readying to launch a range of DIY kits in the coming weeks, as well as a selection of bottled cocktails.
