A trio of new treats for Southend, as three restaurants secured for Seaway
A trio of new treats for Southend, as three restaurants secured for Seaway

Turnstone Estates has confirmed there are no tricks, just treats for Seaway, Southend on Sea, by agreeing terms with not one, not two, but three restaurants to join their tenant line up. 

Kervan Kitchen will provide a visual dining experience for all occasions, serving tasty dishes that have an authentic Turkish flavour. The 5,000 sq ft unit will seat 180 diners and offer a place to experience a fine dining Turkish style, paired with a selection of delicious wines.

Owners of Kervan Kitchen, Maggie Themistocli and Savas Firat said “With already three locations in Essex now established, we are excited to take Kervan Kitchen to the next level in Southend. Visitors can expect a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere with a luxe and modern dining experience”.

Next up, Burger Amour serves authentic burgers in a contemporary and relaxed setting, using the best ingredients sourced locally, grilled to order.  Their sister company DOUGH&co, complete the trio of signings, serving traditional Italian, freshly made, woodfired pizzas.  Combined, these two restaurants will occupy two units at Seaway, totalling 6,000 sq ft, and offer over 200 seats. 

Chris Sharman, owner of Burger Amour and DOUGH&co, said “We have a number of locations already well established in East Anglia and look forward to serving our fresh and tasty offer to the residents and visitors to Southend.  Not only do we have enticing menus, our restaurants will be striking as our wall paneling and tables are all made from recycled pallets.”

But the good news doesn’t stop there. The arrival of Kervan Kitchen, Burger Amor & DOUGH&co is set to create over 110 new job opportunities for Southend and the local area. The lettings also contribute to the viability and ensures delivery of the Seaway development, which will contribute over £15m every year to Southend’s town centre economy.

Tim Deacon, Director of Turnstone Estates, further explains, “These trio of signings will provide a boost to Southend’s town centre economy, helping us to create over 500 jobs through the Seaway development. I really look forward to seeing the opening of Kervan Kitchen, Burger Amor and 

DOUGH&co, along with the other leisure experiences, that will revitalise the town centre and build a better Southend.  The three restaurants are a real compliment to the tenant line up of the already committed Hollywood Bowl, Empire Cinemas and Travelodge”.

The new dining experiences are set to start serving from Spring 2024 in Seaway leisure complex.
