SHIMLA Spice is the real deal – and has a new award to prove it!

The Keighley restaurant won the accolade for Most Authentic Indian Cuisine of Northern England in the 2019 Business Innovator Awards.

The awards, run by Community Vision magazine, are open to organisations from across the world and are based on merit rather than the number of votes received.

Shimla Spice manager Faisal Hussain said: “This is another fantastic award to add to our growing list of regional and national awards.

“It’s a great achievement for the staff at Shimla Spice and it puts Keighley on the map.

“We have worked endlessly to have our work recognised in an industry where there are thousands of restaurants throughout the United Kingdom.”

Shimla Spice, in Damside, was nominated by one of its regular diners, then assessed by a mystery diner from Community Vision. The magazine looked at the Shimla Spice’s history and reasons it should win.

In its award citation, Community Vision stated: “Shimla Spice has demonstrated dedication to the industry as well as exceptional client/customer service, with an on-going commitment to excellent, innovation and quality of work.”

Shimla Spice will appear in Community Vision’s annual celebratory magazine, which is digitally distributed to more than 130,000 readers across the globe.
