it has been shortlisted in the Takeaway of the Year Wales category at the Nation's Curry Awards this year, and are hoping to retain the title for the second time having come out on top at last year's ceremony. 

Their victory in the Good Food Awards earlier this month notched their third award there in a row.

Owners Muhammad Ahmed and Niaz Haidari, said: "Our takeaway has built up a good reputation over the years, because we provide excellent service and maintain our quality.

"We are always seeking new ideas and trying to improve to ensure our business keeps its valuable reputation and loyal customer base.

“Thank you to our customers who are continually supporting us.”
