Domino’s Pizza – the international pizza takeaway chain – is to set up a branch in Penarth – at Windsor Terrace next to the main bus stop for Cardiff-bound buses .
Dominos is making a planning application for the premises formerly operated as a curry restaurant known as “Tropical Tandoori”.
The company is now seeking permission to install “replacement extraction and ventilation equipment” and also carry out “associated external alterations”.
It’s understood the premises are already licensed for operation as a takeaway .
There had been speculation that Dominos would take over the former Blockbuster premises at the junction of Hickman Road and Windsor Road
Agents for the firm had submitted – and received – planning permission for that site to open as a fast-food outlet – despite the misgivings of some local councillors about having a Domino’s branch at the “gateway to Penarth”.
However negotiations fell through and now it seems Domino’s is now to be sited at the opposite end of Penarth’s main trading area.
Tropical Tandoori closed in April this year after 17 years of trading in Penarth
