A YEOVIL restaurant has


been recognised as the best in


the region following a


national public voting campaign.


Signature Viceroy on


Middle Street was south west


regional winner in the Spice


Times Restaurant Awards


2010, which encouraged customers


to vote for their


favourite south Asian eating


place.


Voting took place in


November and the awards


were presented at a gala ceremony


in Romford last month,


attended by Bangladeshi high


commissioner to the UK, the


Rt. Hon Rushanara Ali, and


Shadow Education Minister


Sharon Hodgson.


A dozen restaraunts and


takeaways received regional


awards with the overall


national prize going to an eatery


in Gateshead. Signature


Viceroy is one of six restaurants


run by brothers Luthfur


and Moe Rahmen.


The two are no strangers to


accolades as their restaurants


have been shortlisted for the


British Curry Awards, a separate


competition, for six


years in a row.


Signature Viceroy opened


in 2008, 14 years after Luthfur


opened his first restaurant in


Yeovil, next door.


It has previously been


recognised as newcomer of


the year in the British Curry


Awards, and has an AA


Rosette and a recommendation


from Les Routiers and


Taste of the West.


The signature restaurant


focuses on offering a "fine


dining" experience, with


innovative cuisine and dishes


prepared to customers individual


orders.


Mr Rahmen said: "The restaurant


is Indian in origin but


continental in style.


"Yeovil is an unlikely place


to have a restaurant like this,


but we have a good clientelle.


"If we can make it work


here, we can make it anywhere."


The brothers next project


is to export the successful formula


from Yeovil to Bath.


They plan to open a new restaurant


in a converted Gospel


Hall on the Lower Bristol


Road next month.
