Guru’s Indian Cuisine owners Priya and Ashnikumar Guru are looking at options for their 5,900-square-foot building in Newtown Township.

SVN Commercial Real Estate listed the building at the corner of North Sycamore and Jefferson streets for sale recently.

Guru’s Indian Cuisine closed earlier this month so the owners could focus on adoption and the steps that come along with it.

Chichi Ahia, an executive director and principal at SVN Commercial Real Estate, told the Gurus are soliciting those interested as they work to adopt two girls from India, which could take an unknown amount of time.

“Their timeline is uncertain because of the adoption process,” Ahia said of the couple’s return.

The couple wants options for the property while they are away. Nothing is set in stone, Ahia said.

Guru’s Indian Cuisine has been a fixture in Newtown Township since 2015, and the business relocated to its current location in 2019.

The 5,900-square-foot building has seating for more than 140 customers both indoors and outdoors.

The building has a basement, the restaurant and bar on the first floor, apartments on the second floor, and an attic.

“This offering represents a unique and truly extraordinary opportunity to establish/invest in a business to join the local, regional and national operators presently enjoying Newtown’s thriving retail market,” according to the listing brochure.

The building was constructed in 1796 and has had several expansions over the centuries. It has served as a restaurant and bar in recent decades.

A new southern Indian food eatery is expected to open a bit further down Sycamore Street in Newtown Township later this year.

The news of the sale was first reported by Newtown Patch.
