THERE’S no stopping this Barry-based restaurant, which has recently won another award.

Indian restaurant and takeaway Mint Room, Barry, on Main Street in Cadoxton, has taken the food industry by storm since opening in February 2019 – earning numerous awards.

The food venue’s most recent accolade is South Wales’ Restaurant of the Year in the National Curry Awards 2021, which they were awarded at a ceremony earlier this month.

Business owner, Shah Uddin, said: “We have been honoured with the recognition of Restaurant of the Year in South Wales.

“Thank you to everyone for their continuous support and a huge thank you to the team.

“This was never about money – the only goal was to make the business successful and build a brand.”
