ITALIAN restaurant chain Strada is quitting Sevenoaks after almost eight years.
The Dorset Street eatery will be replaced by Thai restaurant chain Giggling Squid, who have a branch in Tunbridge Wells.
Chartered surveyors firm AG&G confirmed the deal to the Chronicle, but the timescale involved in the move is not yet known. Strada moved into the premises in May 2006.
AG&G's Richard Negus, who brokered the deal on behalf of the new tenants, said: "Since owners Pranee and Andrew Laurillard opened their first restaurant in Hove in summer 2009, Giggling Squid has gone from strength to strength.
"Their offer of organic, modern Thai food for upmarket, 35+ professionals seems to have struck a chord among diners with a taste for strong, fresh flavours.
"They have hopes of becoming the UK's first national Thai restaurant operation and we are happy to be able to help them."
The Italian chain had not commented on why it was leaving town at the time of writing.
