SUSHI lovers are in luck as a popular Japanese restaurant opens in Dunfermline this weekend.

Koku Shi will open their doors for the first time on Carnegie Drive this Saturday, May 18.

After building a loyal fanbase in Kirkcaldy with their extensive menu, they have decided to launch a second restaurant in Dunfermline.

After falling in love with Japanese cuisine in Poland, Jerzy Urmilowicz and Monika Michalski decided to open their own restaurant and they can’t wait to start welcoming customers in their new home.

Monika told the Press: “We’ve had a huge response to the news that we’re coming to Dunfermline.

“It’s fantastic to see that reaction. A lot of people from Dunfermline visited us in Kirkcaldy. Now it will be closer to home for them.

“We think that Dunfermline is a fast-growing place that has a lot of potential, especially for small family-run businesses.”

They pride themselves on having a diverse menu with “something for everyone,” including a unique Highlander menu featuring haggis sushi – a meal they believe to be a world first.

The restaurant will have between 60 and 70 covers with customers able to bring their own bottle.

Koku Shi takes over the space previously occupied by Retros Bar and Restaurant at 41 Carnegie Drive.
