Phillip and Louise Lim, owners of Asia Café North and West, have been thrilled to watch their creative concepts for a new 12,000 square foot restaurant on Callahan Road take shape.
Overwhelming success at their current location at 6714 B Central Avenue Pike meant they had to look elsewhere for more square footage. When nothing suitable could be found, they decided to build a new structure about two blocks away from their current location.
The new restaurant will include ample, multi-level dining room space, hibachi, sushi, karaoke, two bars, and dance floor as well as a supervised play room for kids.
“It is important that parents enjoy dinner and dancing while children are safe and busy with active playtime,” said Lim.
Lim, originally from Malaysia, and wife, Louise, who grew up in the Philippines, credit the work ethic they were taught by their families for their success.
“Asia Café provides authentic tastes from 6 cultures: Malaysian, Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese Grill and sushi,” Lim said.
The Lims expect the new building to be completed by next April or May.
“We are hoping for a grand opening in the spring, provided we have good weather,” said Lim.
