If looking to rent a restaurant in Mumbai, yes it is possible to have it on the first floor. And what we have seen over the last few years is more and more restaurants are opening on higher floors of commercial buildings given that the demand for restaurants has increased significantly. Take a look at our recent blog article and a brief video of Otis on Linking Road.
So…. Forget just the 1st floors, the 2nd, 3rd, 4th etc are all in play now! BUT, make sure that all safety precautious are taken care of as there have unfortunately been issues recently with fires in restaurant for rent properties that did not have the necessary safety measures in place and people lost their lives, most famously in early 2018. Extremely sad.
