ONE of the most prominent buildings on Felpham’s main road is to become an Indian restaurant.
So India is due to open in the former Felpham Tavern in about two months.
The contracts on the Felpham Way property were exchanged on Monday (February 18).
So India project manager Michael Noor said: “This is an ideal site for us. The property is quite big and it’s in the middle of a large residential area, which is very affluent. It will take us about two months before we open because the building needs a total refurbishment.”
The finished restaurant will seat 60 diners and boast a separate bar.
It will be the sixth So India restaurant to open. “We are doing so well because Indian food is value for money, which is important in a recession,” said Mr Noor.“There is also a lot of choice compared to other cuisines and new ideas to try.”
The building was formerly the Felpham Club and, originally, a private home.
