Burgers, pizza and bubble tea will be on the menu at a new restaurant opening in George St next month.

Judy Ling is opening her restaurant, likely to be called Burger N Beast, at the bottom floor of Plunket House in the Knox Row area of George St.

"I always wanted to start a new business - my own one - and now I think it’s the time," Ms Ling said.

She said bubble tea was becoming more popular in Dunedin - and burgers and pizzas always did well.

The vacant space she had taken was the site where hot dog restaurant EpicDog recently closed.

Ms Ling had recruited a manager and his friend Neeraj Kumar Mothuku to work alongside him.

They were not going to make many changes to the site.

"It’s pretty much all settled, we just need to have a little tidy up," Ms Ling said.

They were looking for nine to 10 staff to run the store and do deliveries.

They were also planning a "self-delivery" system - where customers could make orders and track where they were via technology they had an IT company in India installing.
