About UsOur Story

Emojies was created to give the residents of Dewsbury something to be proud of! The venue which was formerly Bailey’s Café, has had its art deco frontage restored to its former glory as part of a £1 million restoration project and the result is simply stunning! 

The interior has a stunning high-end finish with an industrial theme. The restaurant, set over two floors, has light-up tables, two huge video walls, a unique engraved carpet wall and a feature cherry blossom tree.

Offering delicious burgers, mouth watering shakes, healthy salads and a range of vegetarian options, everything on the menu being completely halal, Emojies brings to Dewsbury the type of contemporary sit-down restaurant experience you’d find in Leeds or Manchester.

When you order your food at Emojies, we operate a colour coded system using our unique, colour-lit tables. Your table is red until you order, when it turns to amber and your food is being prepared. When your table turns green your food is ready to collect from the counter. Come and see for yourself how it works!

Testimonialscustomer reviews

I loved your cuisine, ambience and service! A combination of all these elements is perfect here. I visited the restaurant with my friends and I was amazed by its interior and stunning decor!
Imran Hussain
Totally stunning atmosphere and I especially love the rooftop terrace which is a real little haven in the heart of Batley - a hidden gem. I make this a regular lunch venue with my work colleagues now. Loive it!
Jodie Smith
Finding a halal restaurant that offers something different from Indian cuisine isn't easy, but this is just the ticket. I can eat here with my friends and there's something for all of us - delicious burgers and to die for shakes. Can't beat it!
