A new Japanese restaurant serving sushi and izakaya will open soon in the former Scissors and Needle shop in Ipswich.

The property, a Grade II listed building located at 6 St Helen's Street, has signs outside on the door stating 'Bushido, sushi and izakaya. OPEN SOON'.

Back in October, a planning application was sent to Ipswich Borough Council to change the use of the building.

An official opening date for the shop is yet to be revealed.
