EMF are delighted to bring to market this popular and well-regarded Sushi and Ramen restaurant and takeaway, which is situated in a prime city centre location in Norwich. The premises are set over three floors and are presented to an extremely high standard throughout and offers the opportunity for the new owner to either continue and further grow the business, or alternatively to relaunch with their own ideas and cuisines.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The business was setup by the vendors approximately 5 years ago as a Japanese Restaurant and has gone from strength to strength, earning many 5 star reviews on Google Businesses and gaining quite a following on social media. Offering a selection of delicious Japanese dishes, they are known for their freshly prepared Sushi and Ramen and have recently relaunched their website to tie in with the overall theme.
The ever increasing popularity of the business is reflected in the turnover, which was in excess of £225,000 for 2019, with the good level of profit which a business of this type would be expected to enjoy.
With limited competition in the city for this style of cooking, the business has many regular customers, over both lunchtime and in the evenings, as well as with its takeaway offering, which we understand the Council have advised the vendors they can provide as a supplemental service.
With very positive reviews on TripAdvisor and other review websites, it's easy to see why the business is so popular and does so well. It now only comes to market reluctantly as the vendors are wishing to relocate outside of Norwich.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
The business is situated in an ideal location in the city centre in St. Giles Street, and is surrounded by other independent restaurants and businesses and enjoys significant footfall past its front door.
The Grade II Listed building is packed with charm and character, providing a quirky layout with feature sash windows, exposed timber beams and a warming fireplace adding to the atmosphere inside.
