The United Arab Emirates has been pin-pointed as a future location for the launch of an Indian restaurant.
One branch of Ushna has just been opened at Souk Qaryat Al Beri, Abu Dhabi and the company is looking to establish more in the area over the coming years.
The restaurants offer contemporary North Indian cuisine combined with tradition for those buying in Dubai who enjoy dining out and wish to get a taste of the region.
Eric Leprevost, general manger of food and beverage development at Roya International, said: "We are now in a strong position to expand the brand regionally having prepared all the necessary manuals and guidelines for the Ushna brand to be successfully franchised."
Those in Abu Dhabi may want to take a trip over to Dubai, as the Neighbour to Neighbour voucher book was launched last week to encourage travel and tourism between the emirates.
