A capacity of 20 is planned for the eatery, but the type of food on offer is not specified.

What used to be storage space will be used as a kitchen, while the public-facing part of the former shop will become the dining area.

The application is under the name of Delshad Mohhamed, who is a director of a barber shop elsewhere in the city.
