The new Chinese restaurant is going to be opened in the building of the Central Post Office in Veliko Tarnovo town. The investment will be realized jointly with a Chinese company.
The building in the centre of the old capital was lastly owned by the developer Todor Kolev. It was then planned to open as an ice cream house, but the project was never implemented. The new investor Viktor Azmanov is the founder and chairman of the Bulgarian-Chinese chamber of commerce and industry and is a master of martial arts. His passion to China leaded to his decision to open a Chinese restaurant in the top centre of the town. For the past few years Veliko Tarnovo attracts a lot tourist from Asia, so such restaurant with this good location is going to have a lot of clients.
