This Dumpling and Yum Cha restaurant has loads of potential. Stunningly decorated with traditional and period furniture, it is reminiscent of a Chinese Tea House - the owner has created a unique ambience for diners.
Occupying a huge 270sqm premises in Windsor, a big shopping and dining district, it has easy access by public transport with the train station and tram stops only metres away. There is also cheap and secure all day parking for customers only a few metres away.
Diners enjoy coming here as much for the decor as for the delicious dumplings, yum cha offerings and heartier slow-cooked casserole dishes.
As it is, this business is very easy to run, the current owner is not a chef. There is much potential to boost profit margins if new investors are chefs or have experience in asian kitchens.
Trading 6 days per week: open for dinner Tuesdays to Thursdays and both lunch and dinner on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Closed Mondays.
Owner has set up a website for customers wishing to do online ordering and also sells pre-made packs of dumplings and partnered with Doordash for delivery.
Owner works in the restaurant with up to 8 casual staff, usually 8 staff on busier days and 4 staff on quieter days.
Turning over approximately $9,000 per week. Rent of $5,300 per month including GST with a secure lease of 5x2 commenced August 2022.
This is an easy business to run if you are looking for a business for yourself and have no cooking experience.
If you are a chef looking for a business, this business already has a beautifully set up dining room with traditional Chinese antique furniture (valued at $120,000) with an ambience loved by the customers. So all the set-up work has been taken care of, all you need to do is take over and begin adding your speciality dishes to the menu.
An inspection of this restaurant will surely impress.
