Amsterdam steakhouse launches in London with multi-million pound HSBC funding
A steakhouse specialist based in Amsterdam has launched its first restaurant in London after securing a £2.3m funding package from HSBC UK.
Toro Dorado Quality Steaks (TDQ Steaks) has opened its doors at a riverside unit at the Albert Embankment, within the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea development.
Occupying a 3,200 sq ft in the Corniche development, the steakhouse will offer 120 covers and create 25 new jobs.
Originally opened in Amsterdam in 1994, TDQ Steaks specialises in a range of beef including Argentinian Premium Black Label, Canadian Heritage Free-range Angus, Canadian Rangeland Bison, Japanese Certified Kobe Wagyu beef, Scottish Mathers Black Gold and New Zealand Prime Steer.
Khalil Qaiser, shareholder and director of TDQ Steaks, commented: “Like Amsterdam, London is a melting pot of culture and diversity and that’s why we are so excited to now be welcoming customers to our second exclusive location, slap bang in the heart of the city.
“HSBC UK’s assistance and advice in getting TDQ Steaks London up and running has been invaluable, with our relationship manager, Amran Miah, setting us up with a tailored finance package to suit our needs.”
Richard Gimblett, area director for City of London Business Banking, at HSBC UK, added: “TDQ Steaks is a product of passion and with years of experience in the service industry, we were happy to support their quest to establish the exclusive brand in London.
“Not only is it great to see continued investment in the City’s food scene, it’s also exciting to witness the restaurant adding to the diverse offering in the exciting development of the Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea regeneration area.”
