FORMER Saints stars Matt Le Tissier and Paul Jones were among the guests at a party thrown by Southampton's newest eatery.

They were invited to a VIP launch night event at Kuti's Brasserie, an Indian and Asian restaurant at the Royal Pier, Mayflower Park.

Matt took part in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the complex, which opens to the public on Thursday.

He and Paul were following in the footsteps of fellow Saints legend Lawrie McMenemy, who visited the waterside restaurant last month.

Royston Smith, Tory MP for Southampton Itchen, was also among the guests at the party.

Kuti's Brasserie is situated on the eastern shores of Southampton Water and boasts an outdoor eating area with stunning views of passing liners.

The party was staged in aid of Breast Cancer Haven, a charity that supports women through their breast cancer treatment.
