A new halal steak restaurant, which is part of a major national brand, is set to officially open this week.

Steakout will launch in the former Chiquito store in Lower Audley Street (opposite Pizza Hut), Blackburn after a £400,00 makeover and is set to officially open on Friday (September 14).

The restaurant has had a soft-opening already where invited guests were able to taste the range of dishes on offer.

The Halal Monitoring Committee certified (HMC) menu features signature beef and lamb steaks as well as a variety of burgers. 

The new halal restaurant has 170 seats, including 130 inside and 40 outside.

Owner Rezaul Majid, who has lived in Blackburn and Preston said the new restaurant would bring something different to the town.

He told us, “We have been open for a few evenings for some private events and the feedback so far has been great. People have been really impressed with the look and menu.

“It is a bit different for Blackburn and we are hoping to attract a wide range of customers from across the county.

“There has been interest already from people from outside Blackburn who want to visit the town just to sample the steaks.”

He said the restaurant had undergone major renovations, “We have had professional designers in to give the restaurant a unique feel and I am really proud of how it has turned out.

“The chefs have been training for six months at the head office in London which is why we took just a bit longer to open.”

Steakout also hosts an in-house dessert parlour.

Rezaul added, “Only the bigger restaurants have specialist ice-cream parlours where we serve a range of milk shakes.

“People can come in for just the desserts if they wish in a separate seating area next to the entrance.”

Steakout was founded by Kaysor Ali and opened its first London store in 2008.
It expanded to eight franchised restaurants across the UK from 2013-15.
