Kurobuta founder opens delivery-only concept

Scott Hallsworth has become renowned across the London dining scene for his Japanese and Pan-Asian cooking.

Restaurateur Scott Hallsworth, has launched both a local delivery service, Joe's Oriental Diner, and Joe’s @ Home, a wider-reaching delivery service for South London and West London.

Joe’s @ Home will operate as a premium delivery service, where Scott and his team will deliver the dishes and plate up in the customer’s own home. Both the local delivery menu and Joe’s @ Home menus will feature a selection of Scott’s signature Freak Scene London dishes mixed with new inventions.

Hallsworth’s decision to open a dark kitchen was described as a move to “combat the saturated London dining scene and ever-increasing rents, coinciding with the increase in popularity of delivery operations” due to the pandemic.

“We’re not looking for expensive locations to enhance our cooking, we want the food to speak for itself. In the current climate it’s made more sense for us to open a delivery-only site so we can provide the same level of food without the overhead costs,” he said.

Joe’s Oriental Diner is available for delivery in SW London, with Joe's @ Home available for any orders over £100, where delivery and plating up will be available for customers around London.
