Hilton Smythe are pleased to have been given the opportunity to manage the sale of Hafez Persian Restaurant which is a well-established business with a renowned reputation amongst residents.
This is a superb opportunity to take on a high turnover local business in an area teeming with customers which also offers considerable potential.
There has been a restaurant or food-based business at this site for some years and it was an Italian Restaurant in a previous incarnation.
The business was rebranded as a Persian Restaurant just under a year ago when the current owner spotted a gap in the market.
Hafez Persian Restaurant has been a real labour of love for the vendor and has flourished under his ownership.
Alas the business is now being sold, albeit reluctantly and with a heavy heart only due to a change in personal circumstances.
The vendor is keen to see his beloved business pass to an ambitious and entrepreneurial new owner who can take this already thriving business to the next level.
Hafez Persian Restaurant offers fine Persian cuisine with all meals being lovingly created on the premises using local ingredients wherever possible.
All dishes are cooked with the highest standards using methods that have been handed down through the generations. This helps in creating an authentic Persian flavour.
