Wiltshire restaurant named best in the South WestPosted on 28th January 2013
Stunning countryside, pretty villages, vibrant towns and one of the best restaurants in the South West, Wiltshire really does have it all as a tourism destination.
A restaurant in Swindon run by the same family for 50 years has been named Bangladesh Caterers Association’s Caterer of the Year award for the region, beating off stiff competition at a black-tie awards evening.
The Kyhber, which also has the notable distinction of being the oldest Indian restaurant in Wiltshire, won the accolade in the same year that it celebrated its 50th anniversary. Sadik Ali – who runs the restaurant alongside his brother Hasan – was presented with the prestigious award by Eastenders star Nina Wadia during a glittering ceremony at the five-star Park Plaza Westminster Hotel, and he described the night as a bit like ‘being at the Oscars’.
Thanking all the loyal customers that visited the restaurant and the support they have had over the years, Mr Ali said the award was akin to the ‘light at the end of the tunnel after many years of hard work’.
Renowned for its unique dishes and top quality service, the restaurant has maintained a lasting appeal by expanding its menu to include an array of Asian sub-continent and Malaysia influences.
The Kyhber is part of a thriving culinary landscape throughout the county of Wiltshire, a factor that helps attract thousands of visitors to one of the beautiful holiday cottages in Wiltshire.
Blessed with some of the most spectacular scenery found anywhere in the UK, Wiltshire has become one of the most popular holiday destinations for young British families. Come and see what all the fuss is about and book your Wiltshire cottage holidays today – just ensure you bring a camera so you can capture the magical memories that you will undoubtedly have.
