A German fast-food pasta takeaway has officially opened its first UK restaurant in Sutton High Street.

Tellys TST welcomed its new customers last Saturday (April 28) after announcing its opening date earlier last month.

The fast-food chain is based on a ‘premium pasta-to-go concept’ and a ‘reinterpretation’ of classic pasta that has led to more than 80 combinations.

A Tellys TST spokesman said: “Tellys TST optimised all its processes and their equipment in such a way that every customer gets his [or her] delicacies within three minutes only.

“If you want, you can put together your own personal cup of pasta. Afterwards, you can follow the preparation of your food in the open kitchen – the heart of the stylish Tellys TST store.

“Its style is inspired by the cosmopolitan lifestyle of SoHo, a scenic quarter of New York City and London.”

It follows after a planning application submitted to Sutton Council in January earlier this year to convert the site into a restaurant, employing between four to six people.

The takeaway chain has stores in three German cities and was launched by chef and author Christian Rach, who received his first Michelin star in 1991.

Tellys TST, in 112 High Street, is open between 7am and 8pm, Monday to Sunday and is near to Boots and Clarks.
