AN UNSTOPPABLE Indian takeaway in Barry is a finalist for yet another award.

Royal Balti Barry on Vere Street in Cadoxton is famous not just for its food (available for collection or delivery) but due to the numerous awards the business has won.

Following the venue winning a Good Food Award in January, Royal Balti Barry has been shortlisted for another Good Food Award.

Muhammad Ahmed, who co-owns the business with Niaz Haidari, said: “As owner I feel very proud to have been shortlisted again for a Good Food Award.

“Without my dedicated team and our loyal customers, we wouldn't have achieved this.

“So, a big thank you to all from team Royal Balti Barry.”

The multi-award-winning takeaway has celebrated many victories in 2023, including:

“Along with being a multi-award-winning Indian takeaway, we are proud to have re-achieved our ‘five’ food hygiene rating,” added Mr Ahmed.
