PEOPLE are still queuing out of the door for a pan-Asian noodle bar, three days after it officially opened.

Chopstix in Basingstoke opened on Monday, January 15, with over 100 people queuing to try the new restaurant in Festival Place on the day as the chain offered 100 free boxes to those who waited, as well as 1,000 free spring rolls on the app to celebrate the opening.

Now, on Thursday, January 18, three days after the official opening, customers are still queueing out of the door to get their fix of noodles.

Chopstix is the largest Asian-inspired quick-serve restaurant in the UK, offering a range of dishes including chicken katsu, sweet and sour, and its signature dish, salted caramel chicken.

It also has restaurants in Reading, Southampton and Fleet Services, to name just a few nearby locations.

It was first announced in November that Chopstix would open in Basingstoke, with the company placing an advert in the shopping centre, reading ‘We’ll soon be clicking our sticks in Basingstoke'.

Rob Burns, marketing director for Chopstix, previously said: “As always, we continue to deliver a faster, fresher, and tastier alternative to the high street - and we’ve got a whole host of exciting things in store for our opening week.

"We ask our loyal customers based in Basingstoke to download the Chopstix app as we’ll be releasing some exclusive offers and deals over the next few weeks to celebrate the launch of our newest store in Festival Place. 

“We’re honoured to serve the communities in which we operate so we’re also thrilled to bring more job opportunities for those in the local area, with around 20 new jobs being created.”
