Here is the first look inside Manchester’s new Heavenly Desserts restaurant.

The £400,000 luxury dessert parlour opened on the city’s famous Curry mile this week.

Building work only started on the interior 6 weeks ago and owners said they are delighted to be opening the doors to the public in such a short space of time.

An opening event on Saturday featured fire jugglers and stilt walkers on what is the city's busiest stretch of road.

Owner Ish Ahmed of Blackburn said, “It has been amazing how quickly we have managed to get this restaurant opened.

“Of course we were delayed by the lockdown and were due to open in June. But we are overjoyed that we are opening in October. The team have worked round the clock to ensure we launched this month.”

The 95-seater restaurant is located in a new building on Wilmslow Road. It is the second Heavenly Desserts launched by Ish and his team after the opening of the Bolton Deansgate branch in September last year.

Ish added, “We have full social distancing measures in place throughout the restaurant and a number of private booths for diners.

“As anyone knows this stretch of the road, it is world famous and despite the restrictions remains a popular destination for visitors. We look forward to offering the Heavenly Desserts experience to Manchester diners.”
