The Bann Thai restaurant in Cromer has been awarded the 2019 Good Food Award.

Owner Kim Steggles said: “There are only about 300 winners in the whole country. It’s good news for us and for Cromer.

“It’s good that it puts Cromer on the food map for Thai food, and not just for crabs and fish and chips.

“And it rewards all the hard work the staff have put in. Thanks to our loyal customers who supported us over the last 12 months.”

The award says: “Bann Thai Restaurant, 1a Church Street, Cromer, Norfolk, NR27 9ER has now been awarded the prestigious Good Food Award for 2019.

“Over the last 12 months we have evaluated customer feedback and these premises have demonstrated exceptional levels of food quality, service and value when compared to our industry benchmarks in their category. In recognition of this achievement they have been duly awarded the 2019 Good Food Award.”

The restaurant in Church Street employs 10 full and part-time staff and has been open for nearly four years.

Mr Steggles said that Bann Thai was also rated the top Asian restaurant and the top Thai restaurant in Norfolk on TripAdvisor.

The authenticity of the restaurant is largely thanks to Mr Steggles’ wife Annabelle, who is the eatery’s head chef and moved to England from northern Thailand in 2001.

Earlier this year, the couple took over the lease on the neighbouring shop, which was previously a children’s clothing outlet.

Work on the bigger and improved restaurant should be completed by next January.

The Good Food Awards are compiled, scored and written each year so there are always new entries and deletions. The awards are based on tasty delicious dishes, ranking among competitors, consistent positive customer feedback and a great Food Hygiene Score.

Business owners can register their interest to be included and readers can also make nominations too.
