The couple took over the restaurant in November 2021 and said they have “worked extremely hard” ever since - going “above and beyond” to get the award-winning restaurant to where it is today.

“When people leave and say they’ve had a fantastic evening we feel privileged that we’ve been able to provide that,” Mrs Ali said.

“All of the local people who swore ten years ago that they would never step foot in the restaurant again have come back.

“We’ve got a chef - Amin Shyaf – who is passionate about his food and the restaurant. Everything is made in house and made fresh from the pan as ordered.”
