Kokoro, which has more than 50 outlets across the UK, has earmarked a retail unit in Cathedral Square for its Peterborough opening.

Its cold food menu includes sushi and sashimi, hot food includes katsu curry, sweet and sour chicken and beef bulgogi plus there’s sides (various gyozas, edamame beans, and spring rolls), soups and salads.

This week the city council approved its plans for the change of use of the shop, plus new signs, internal alterations and extraction ducting.

There has been no indication as to when the new venue – sitting between Wildwood and Pizza Express – would open.

Cathedral Square has already seen the addition of Franco Manca earlier this month, and Las Iguanas has targeted an October opening after converting the former Bill’s restaurant nearby.
