Everyone’s favourite gyros slingers are heading to Leeds city centre at long last and we’re absolutely buzzing our pittas off.

ThatZiki has today announced plans for a new permanent residence at Trinity Kitchen, set to open in just a few weeks’ time.

And they’ve teased a big giveaway to celebrate their arrival into the city centre too.

They’ll be bringing their wildly popular Greek street food into Leeds, taking over what was previously the home of Absurd Bird.

ThatZiki was first launched in 2022 by brothers Jack and Luke Newton, and has grown from a modest food truck to a much bigger enterprise.

They have sites in Chorlton and Salford Quays over in Greater Manchester, plus a kitchen in Warrington, and previously had a delivery kitchen in Leeds.

Set to open at the end of July, the new ThatZiki site will serve up its famous gyros with a range of fillings, from 24-hour marinaded chicken and pork to grilled halloumi plus a vegan option.

The gyros are also available in a box, and topped with a choice of homemade house sauce, tzatziki, or sriracha chilli or mayo.

Sides include loaded fries, feta fries, pita and hummus.

As part of the launch event, ThatZiki will give away 50 free gyros plus free Greek soft drinks, with details to be announced via their social media.

Jack said: “We’re so proud of what we’ve achieved in just a couple of years – from saving up for the food truck to now launching our fourth venue, we couldn’t be happier. We wouldn’t be here without the support of our amazing, loyal customers, and our friends and family. Their positive feedback and encouragement has meant the world.

“It’s a big step opening in such a major shopping centre in the heart of Leeds, working alongside big names but it’s all part of our plan to become the biggest and best Greek food business.

“What sets us apart is our food – we make our tzatziki from scratch every day, marinate our chicken and pork in our own secret marinade based on traditional recipes from Greece, and make our sauces in-house using proper halloumi from Cyprus and pita breads from Athens.

“We can’t wait to bring ThatZiki to Leeds and give even more people the chance to try our food. Yamas!”

Josie Towning, Food and Beverage Manager at Trinity Leeds, said: “We’ve been waiting for something special to join our incredible line-up at Trinity Kitchen, and ThatZiki is the perfect fit. The team is so passionate about what they do and their incredible food already has quite the following, so we can’t wait for people in Leeds to enjoy it too!”

The new arrivals will be trading alongside permanent eateries including Archie’s, Pho, Rola Wala, Tortilla, Pizzaluxe and Doner Shack.
