A Popular takeaway restaurant in Weston has been taken over by a new owner, who promises some additions to the menu.
Douglas Bonar, who has cooked in and run restaurants in Bath and Scotland, has taken over Tokyo Wok in Orchard Place.
The takeaway is known for its unique style of serving different types of rice or noodles, meats, vegetables and sauce in a box.
Mr Bonar, who has served dinners for the likes of Princess Anne, Tiger Woods and Steven Spielberg, said he doesn’t plan to change the restaurant, other than to enhance it.
He said: “It is a fantastic place. I don’t want to change it. I think it works as it is.
“But I want to enhance it and I’m going to put my own stamp on it and my experience, to show what it can do.
“There is no point breaking something which works.
“I think the whole ethos will be the same, as the previous owners did a fantastic job with that.”
Mr Bonar decided to take over the business so he could be closer to his family.
He said: “What I want to do is get a new freshness.
“I’m going to make sure as much of our food as we can comes from within a 50-mile radius of Weston.”
Mr Bonar also plans to refurbish the restaurant area to make it more appealing for diners.
He also plans to add desserts to the menu.
He said: “I’m going to add desserts so that when people order takeaway, they have a bigger choice.
“We’re looking at getting wines in too, so people can get a box of food and a bottle of wine at a reasonable price.”
Other plans include a Tokyo Wok car, which will tie into offers on the restaurant’s social media pages, where people will be able to get a free box of food.
