Triple A for local restaurant

A DALKEITH restaurant has been awarded a prestigious AAA rating certificate and is in the running for two more awards.

The Bombay Lounge, based on the town’s High Street, won an AAA award for food, service and friendliness, from the London Guide. And staff will head to London next month for the British Curry Awards and Asian Curry Awards where they are up for more accolades.

Manager Michael Singh said: “It’s quite a big achievement, I’m shocked. It’s really nice to be honoured. We all work very hard and everyone is passionate here.

“To stand out from the rest and be appreciated for our quality of service and food is great. We have a very strong team here, like a family really. And, we have got loyal customers who we know on first name terms.”
