In November 2018, 120 Church Street was set to be converted into a new restaurant with flats above.


Now, new restaurant Food Lab is set to open to the public for sit down meals on Tuesday, 15 December, if Preston is placed into tier-2 restrictions.

They will be offering takeaways from the same date if the city remains in tier-3.

Food Lab’s food will be themed, with unique combinations. Meat will be injected with spices to make it moist and full of flavour, and their non-alcoholic mocktails (icemokes) will be served in beakers with dry ice.

The venue also boasts a gold leaf-topped pizza and burger, whilst offering customers reasonable prices.

Owners Mohammed Ali Khan and Mujadid Ali decided to open Food Lab, as they found a lack of variety in takeaway and restaurant food available in Preston.

Ali said: “Everyone in Preston is doing practically the same thing, and the establishments that do offer nice, fresh food are very expensive which isn’t good in these hard times.

“So, we wanted a place where families and friends could come, with a nice atmosphere, with fresh food made every day on site which isn’t too expensive.”

The team are excited and optimistic for the future. They know a lot of their revenue will come from takeaway and pick up at the minute, but they are ready and waiting with their lovely venue when restrictions allow.

Mohammed and Mujadid have worked in the industry for many years and are excited to expand Food Lab rapidly.
