26 November 2016: A Nepalese-owned takeaway has beaten established local businesses in South West England to be shortlisted for a prestigious British food award.

To be hosted by actor and TV personality Rob Brydon, the annual prize honours England’s star takeaways serving best of the best food to British consumers.

Gurkha’s Kitchen in Stoke is emerging as a serious contender for the Just Eat British Takeaways Award which will be announced in January. It has gone through two rounds of public voting to be ranked among top 13 regional takeaways.

Gurkha’s Kitchen, which serves both authentic Nepalese food as well as Indian, does a signature dish which apparently is a smashing hit among the locals. According to a review by Plymouth Herald, the signature Gurkhali Chicken is “the star of the show because it’s both delicious and searingly hot”.

“Like the restaurant, the takeaway’s cookery is rooted in traditional Nepalese family recipes which are packed with flavour,” a report by the regional newspaper noted.

According to reports, Gurkha’s received the most votes across two rounds of public voting when over 110,000 online votes were cast.

If it wins the final award, Gurkha’s will be eligible for an award of £5,000.

The restaurant is owned by one Usha Giri. “We’ve only been open two years so getting to the final of the British Takeaway Awards and top five in the South West is a real achievement for us,” Ms Giri was quoted as saying by the Herlad.
