Giant five-storey pyramid dubbed ‘eighth wonder of world’ to become curry house

A gigantic five-storey pyramid in the north of England is set to be transformed into a curry house.

The 4.5-acre Stockport Pyramid site is comprised of 86,000sqft of office floor space. It has been dubbed the "eighth wonder of the world".

Award-winning restaurant chain Royal Nawaab previously revealed it was in talks with the current owners to buy the site, which has stood empty for five years now.

Manchester Evening News reports Royal Nawaab, which has two other restaurants in London and Ilford, has now confirmed plans to open another restaurant in the Stockport Pyramid next year (subject to planning approval).

The restaurant firm said in July it wanted to transform the pyramid into its next Indian restaurant and banquet hall. It previously ran a banquet hall nearby in Levenshulme until it was acquired by Merzee earlier this year.

In an Instagram post, the Royal Nawaab said: “Unveiling the Grandeur: New Royal Nawaab Manchester Opening Summer 2024. Until we open, visit our two branches in Perivale and Ilford.”

The post featured alongside a video of the Stockport Pyramid telling followers "the icon is back". The news was met with immediate excitement from diners.

One follower said: “Wow wow wow what a great News. Waiting for Royal Nawab again in Manchester.” Another wrote: “Will be here everyday lol..x”

Another posted: “Congratulations and all the best. Good food is a must and you have proven that again and again. cant wait.”

Others got excited about the scope of the new site and the potential for what could be in store.

One person wrote: “That place is massive. Would be nice if you could open up a desert bar or cafe aswell as the buffet option or a wedding hall (sic).”

In response to one person asking whether the new restaurant would feature the "same menu or something different", Royal Nawaab said: “Bigger and better menu.”

The building, which has 426 on-site car parking spaces, was first constructed in 1992 as part of five planned pyramids built in the area to create Manchester's own 'Valley of Kings' along the River Mersey, a nod to ancient Egypt. However, the Stockport Pyramid was the only one of the five to be built.
