A right carry on! Midlothian restaurants take away more plaudits
Midlothian restaurants Radhuni and Itihaas are carrying on where they left off – by being listed among Scotland’s top takeaways.
In September the India-Bangladeshi restaurants were ranked 2 and 5 on a list of the country’s best curry restaurants as reviewed by customers on Google.
Now they’ve proved to be similar hits in reviews posted by the global Internet provider – for takeaway food. Radhuni, in Loanhead, is listed at number 3 with an average score of 4.7 out of 5, with Itihaas, in Dalkeith, at number 6 with a mark of 4.5.
Both are owned and run by the same family.
Google’s top 16 includes takeaways from Shetland to the Borders and from Ullapool to Fife. Two Edinburgh restaurants make the list – Oink in Victoria Street at 9 and Kebab Mahal in Nicolson Square at 15 respectively.
The family firm’s distinctions include winning the title of Scotland’s Curry Chef of the Year twice – Matin Khan at Itihaas in 2014 and Ashok Ram of Radhuni last year. The 120-seater Radhuni is shortlisted in the 2019 British Curry Awards to be announced in London next Monday 25 November.
Matin Khan commented: “Itihaas and Radhuni lavish the same meticulous care and attention on our takeaways as the food we serve to in-house diners. We’re grateful to all the customers who praised our service for giving them the opportunity to enjoy the best Indian-Bangladeshi cuisine in the comfort of their own homes.”
