A Chinese hot pot restaurant will be opening soon at a mall in Reading town centre.
The JeiLi Chinese HotPot Restaurant will soon be opening in The Village mall, previously known as Kings Walk.
Earlier this year, the people behind JeiLi Restaurant applied to sell alcohol on and off the premises from 11am to 11pm Monday to Sunday.
That application has since been approved by Reading Borough Council’s licensing department.
The owners have now launched a recruitment drive in preparation for opening.
They are looking for full or part-time waiters and waitresses from £11 an hour, and a part-time kitchen assistant, with a salary starting at £10.50 per hour.
For both of these positions, full training will be provided.
They are also looking for full-time kitchen staff for a wage to be confirmed at interview, dependent on experience.
You can also call a mobile number in a letter attached to the shopfront.
The licensing application was approved on March 29. It is understood JeiLi Restaurant will open this summer.
The Village has something of a mixed reputation, as a number of businesses have come and gone inside the mall.
Examples of closures include the Art of Siam, Bengal Reef, Dolce Vita, Caffeine & Cocktails, and most recently the Little Dessert Shop.
However, newer addition My Warsaw Polish Street Food recently won a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ award from Restaurant Guru, and more established restaurants such as Pho and The Soju have maintained popularity alongside newer entrants Bánh Mì QB Vietnamese and Chilis Indian buffet restaurant.
