A much-loved Derbyshire Thai restaurant is looking for a new owner to take it on as its owners of 20 years have decided to retire.

Emma’s Thai on Pelham Street, Ilkeston , has been a treasured venue serving delicious and exotic dishes for decades, with a heavy emphasis on authenticity and being true to the food’s eastern routes. This includes a variety of curries, soups and stir-fries.

Their website says the eatery serves “real eastern cuisine with bold flavours and massive attention to authenticity. We pride ourselves in our customer service and quality of all our dishes”.

On May 20, 2021, the restaurant reopened after it was renovated. At the time, Emma, the owner, said: “We are very excited to welcome you all back into the restaurant after such a long time. In the time away we have redecorated and we can’t wait for you all to see it.”

But now the venue is on the market, with agents saying that, with a weekly turnover of £2,000 and a loyal customer base, it represents “an excellent opportunity to acquire an award-winning licensed Thai restaurant with 30 covers that has lots of growth potential.”

The sale is being managed by Ernest Wilson and Co, based in Leeds, with a guide price of £60,000. Agents added: “Situated within walking distance of the town centre with convenient access to public transport and car parking. The business also benefits from being located near to a reputable wine bar and popular tap house.

“Operated by our clients with the assistance of four staff. Our clients have owned and operated the business for over 20 years (13 years in the current location) and are now selling due to retirement.

“It has a great reputation locally and excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and social media. The business is currently operated in short opening hours and offers huge scope to grow the business by increasing hours and capitalising on the demand for deliveries through third-party services such as JustEat.

“With a premises licence, this is an ideal opportunity for an existing restauranteur with either the existing or new alternative cuisine or a perfect opportunity to a new operator to take on a well-established restaurant.

“The premises comprise a main dining area with seating for 30 with licensed bar, customer WCs, catering kitchen with store room, and a small yard outside.”
