China House became one of Preston’s most notorious restaurants after accusations of disregarding fire safety rules and illegal workers being employed.

It was stripped of its licence in early 2014 by city council licensing chiefs and eventually closed its doors.

The advert for the property reads: “Imana Estates are delighted to present to the market a popular Chinese restaurant, karaoke bar and residential building located in the heart of Preston’s student area, only a few minutes walk away from the City Campus. It is conveniently situated a few metres off from the busy Aqueduct Street so that it benefits from being in a prominent location but without as much associated noise pollution.


“The property in brief consists of a 72 diner restaurant area with split seating arrangements including a partitioned area for large groups , bay seating around the edges and a mixture of two seater, four seater and eight plus seater positions.

“The restaurant has a contemporary decor with east Asian designs aspects and features a lit up bar in front of the kitchen area.

“The first and second floors house a karaoke bar and residential space that currently accommodates many of the China House staff.

“Located on the site of the former Lime Kiln public house, the building only is for sale. Price excluding VAT.”
