WICHITA — What likely is going to be the biggest restaurant in Wichita is going to open in January.
Teppanyaki Grill Sushi Buffet is going to open in 13,000 square feet at 6710 W. Kellogg next to Best Buy.
“We can hold about 400 people,” says project manager Ricky Cui.
He’s with Minneapolis-based Teppanyaki Grill Buffet, a company that has six buffet restaurants so far, including locations in Omaha, Neb., Sioux Falls, S.D., Chicago, Lawrence and two in the Minneapolis area.
Cui says the company is interested in Wichita due to its proximity to Lawrence.
He says the restaurant will have 12 buffet tables, each of which holds about 20 to 30 items.
The restaurant’s specialties are sushi and Japanese-style teppanyaki, but there are other kinds of Asian and American food available.
Cui says the chain is looking for a Kansas City location. He says if the Wichita restaurant does well, the company may consider a second location here as well.
