The Sushi Co chain, which has a number of eateries across London, is going to welcome customers to its first Sussex branch in Western Road, Brighton, this June.

A spokesman for The Sushi Co said: "At The Sushi Co we follow the path less trodden to seek out the highest quality ingredients for our live sushi kitchens, without compromising the environment that they come from.

"Our dedicated team works with a small hand-picked and highly accredited group of suppliers who deliver vibrant, eye-catching and flavoursome ingredients to our kitchens daily.

"Once our team takes hold of these fresh ingredients, we follow authentic Japanese processes to prepare our handmade Minutes Fresh Sushi.

"We’re proud to take all the necessary extra steps to provide great quality sushi whilst doing our bit to be responsible in how we go about it."

The restaurant is expected to be open seven days a week.
