Habibi - a new Dubai-inspired restaurant from social media star Abdu Rozik - is set to open in Manchester next month. This is the second UK location, following the opening of his Leeds restaurant in January

The 20-year-old singer and boxer has his eyes set on further expansion, with restaurants in London’s Mayfair and Dubai also set to open before the end of the year. Habibi Manchester will be located in the XYZ building at Spinningfields.

If the grand opening of the Leeds restaurant last month is anything to go by, the opening is likely to be a star-studded event. Reality stars Gary Beadle, Dan Osbourne and hip-hop duo Krept and Konan were there, as well as music producer Tom Zanetti, who has also partnered with Abdu Rozik on the restaurant. There was also a good-luck message from Tyson Fury.

The name is derived from the Arabic term meaning 'my love' or 'my dear'. The menu, which Abdu has created himself, will be a fusion of global flavours that reflects his international travels. The restaurant promises Dubai-style opulence. 

Originally from Tajikistan, the 3ft-tall social media influencer now lives in Dubai. He rose to fame in the UK after stealing the show at the KSI and Tommy Fury fight in October. Elsewhere, he is known for participating in the Hindi-language reality show Big Boss in 2022.
