Yuvraaj restaurant is to open to the public on July 24 on Douro Terrace in Ashbrooke – just a stone’s throw from the city centre, bringing with it 17 new positions, including chefs, kitchen assistants, bar staff, waiting staff and office assistants.
The official opening is scheduled for Thursday 23rd July and VIP guests will be treated to a Champagne and cocktail reception, entertainment by the talented singer / songwriter Annabel Pattinson and a selection of Indian food, courtesy of their talented chefs. the Mayor of Sunderland Councillor Barry Curran will cut the ribbon and welcome their guests to the recently refurbished venue.
Owner Monwar Hussain from Sunderland, have invested £160,000 in a complete refurbishment of the destination restaurant, a move the team estimate will help the venue turn over more than £500,000 in its first year of business.
Monwar feels it’s a more than achievable target if they play to their strengths: “We’re in the best area of Sunderland as far as restaurants go. It’s easily accessible from the city centre and all parts of Sunderland.
“At Yuvraaj, which means Indian Prince, we’re going to give people a different class of authentic food, wonderful surroundings and the best level of service in the area. Were also planning to introduce cocktails and mock-tails which is something no other Indian restaurant in the area has ever done.”
Yuvraaj promises traditional Indian cuisine with western fusion influences and is opening in the shell of another former Indian restaurant; Cafe Spice.
Monwar says they can succeed where others have failed: “The previous tenants were in business for 15 years and did well before tailing off. With our approach to unique food, service and the experience as a whole, there is no reason for us to believe we won’t do fantastically well and keep people wanting to come back time and time again.”
Monwar concluded: “The building is beautiful and should provide the perfect setting for what we want to create. This linked to over 80 years between the owners in the catering industry; we are very excited for the future.”
