Taking shape - the Love N Steak Peri-Peri House

The restaurant is currently taking shape on Lincoln Road near The Triangle, in the premises which for some years operated as Afghan restaurant, Kabul.

The venture is a first stray into the world of the food and drink scene for Hamza Hussain, who said the new venture will be a family business, and will definitely cater for families when it opens later the month.

“Like a lot of Peterborough people I go to Leicester two or three times a week, to grill restaurants like Torros and Steakout.

“I have taken on a very experienced chef and we have put together a menu and it will be based on Leicester prices, with a steak meal (including sides) costing around £12.

“I have eaten in a lot of places and have taken the best bits and combined them into what I want to offer our customers, and at the same time keep the price down.”

There will be seven sizzling steaks (served on hotplates) on the menu, with a variety of marinades, chicken fillets and lamb, plus quarter and half chickens with peri-peri sauce,all cooked over new gas grills being installed in the newly fitted out kitchen.

Sides will include grilled king prawns in peri-peri sauce and buffalo wings, there will be gourmet burgers and a children’s menu, plus sharing platters loaded with chicken, steak, wings and king prawns.

“We want to attract family groups and will have a very reasonable children’s menu,” added Hamza. “This is very much a family business - my sister is a partner and my brothers will be working here with me.

“The place will be getting a new look inside with booth type seating and individual drop-down table lighting, and we have reduced the capacity from 70-plus to around 60 to give people more space and privacy.”

The restaurant won’t have a drinks licence but will have a full mocktail bar list.
