A fast-food restaurant has reopened in Barking town centre following a revamp.
The McDonald’s outlet in East Street now boasts self-order kiosks, allowing customers to browse the entire menu before going to a specially-designated area to pick up their order.
In the kitchens, new lay-outs and increased technology mean meals will be made specially to order for customers, with every burger and wrap freshly-prepared.
Free-to-use tablets have also been installed at some tables for customers who want to check their newsfeeds and emails, following the October 3 relaunch.
The restaurant is one of the first in the area to undergo a transformation but the eatery in Dagenham Leisure Park is also set for a similar makeover this year.
