Emojies is in the same building as the iconic Bailey’s Café, next to the recently-revamped Black Bull pub in Market Place.
Dewsbury businessman Imran Ahmed has given the building a complete makeover, with an industrial theme.
Emojies will have a menu based around burgers, grilled chicken and fish along with desserts, smoothies and milkshakes. It will seat 160 diners inside and out.
These pictures show inside and outside the new restaurant, which is set over two floors, has light-up tables, two huge video walls and a feature may blossom tree.
The opening is planned to take place in early June.
