The Japanese restaurant group has upgraded its conveyor belts which will now carry all food and drinks straight to diners, cutting out contact with staff.

Customers are encouraged to take a picture of a QR code on their table to order and pay for food using a digital menu on their phone.

The dishes will then arrive straight to the guest on the conveyor belt, with an interactive traffic light system alerting diners when their food is on the way.

The belt has been upgraded and diners can now order from phones

Drinks will now arrive to customers on the upgraded belt and all tables will be at a one-metre-plus distance from other diners.

YO! Sushi's menu will include its popular sushi rolls, katsu curry and gyozas, as well as new dishes such as tuna and avocado tartare.

Delivery and click-and-collect options will also be available on Deliveroo.

YO! CEO Richard Hodgson said: “We have really missed our guests and can’t wait to welcome them back to YO!.

"We’ve been working hard to make sure we can offer our guests the fun eating out experience YO! is known for while transforming our restaurants into safe, socially distanced environments.

"We’re excited to open our doors again and provide a really exciting, totally different dining experience.”
