A new restaurant and takeaway offering Malaysian and Chinese cuisine is to open in East Renfrewshire.

The Asian on Ayr Road in Newton Mearns, opposite the BP petrol station, will be welcoming customers in the near future with “massive refurbishment works on track to be completed soon”.

The premises are being opened in conjunction with the co-owner of Richmond Oriental, a long-established Cantonese restaurant based in East Kilbride.

Announcing the upcoming opening on the new restaurant’s Facebook page, those behind the venture said: “We are excited to announce the opening of a new restaurant/take-away.

“We welcome you to a delicious feast of exquisite dishes in our latest venture," the post added.

“The Asian has a wide range of world cuisines to choose from (Halal option available).

“We guarantee you a sumptuous feast experience in our restaurant specialising in Malaysia Chinese infused dishes.

“Massive refurbishment works are on track to be completed soon and we cannot wait to open.

“Keep your eyes open for the launch date in the coming weeks.”
