Indian restaurant and bar, Tapasya has secured a £1 million site at the Fruit Market in Hull, it’s second in the area.

Opening in September, Tapasya @ Marina follows the brand’s debut site on Beverley High Road, Hull and will see owners Tapan Mahapatra and Mukesh Tirkoti investing £1m in the new site.

Mahapatra said: “Our latest investment is a clear sign we are making a strong commitment to the regeneration of the Fruit Market area and the promotion of tourism in Hull ahead of Hull UK City of Culture 2017, of which we are strong advocates.”

“We are excited by the vision for the renewal of the Fruit Market and the substantial investments that are being made to make the area a thriving place of culture, creativity and commercial activity. It will be the perfect home for our second restaurant.”

The deal marks the latest stage in the £80m Fruit Market development being carried out by Wykeland Group and Beal Homes in partnership with Hull City Council ahead of Hull’s year as UK City of Culture in 2017.

David Donkin, property director of Hull-based Wykeland, added: “We’re delighted Tapasya is bringing its admired brand and refined dining experience to the Fruit Market.  They fit the bill ideally for our vision for the Fruit Market as a place that features a diverse leisure and retail experience supported by a rapidly-growing commercial community.”

“In addition, the distinguished Michelin starred chef at Tapasya @ Marina and their commitment to high-quality, locally-sourced produce will no doubt be an attraction that draws people to the area and keeps them coming back.”
