Edinburgh Midlothian Indian Restaurant joins UK’s “HOT HUNDRED”

Edinburgh / Midlothian restaurant The Radhuni is celebrating once more after being named in the UK’s top 100 curry houses.

The Indian-Bangladeshi restaurant in Loanhead, which won the title of Scotland’s Best South Asian Restaurant earlier in 2018, received the award at the British Curry Awards at London’s Battersea Evolution centre on 26 November 2018.

VIP guests included UK Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, Conservative Party Chairman and UK Minister Without Portfolio Brandon Lewis, Liberal Democrat Party leader Sir Vince Cable, former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, comedian Russell Brand, TV presenter Hardeep Kohli and former England goalkeeper David Seaman.

Habibur Khan, managing partner of the 120 seat restaurant in Clerk Street, commented: “There are around 12,000 curry restaurants in the UK, employing 100,000 staff, so being included in the leading 100 is another great honour for The Radhuni. Receiving the certificate at such a grand event at the start of British Curry Week was particularly satisfying since it pays tribute to the hard work, vision and enterprise of teams such as ours.”

The Radhuni History

As can be seen, our food is enthused with four generations of love and care. As a result, it has a story to tell. All in all, our story  spans over 100 years.

It all started in 1918 with Abdul Monaf Khan

Abdul was born in 1918 along the banks of Bangladesh’s Manu river. In the first place, he benefited from a deeply-rooted understanding of native spices, vegetables and rice. His passion grew from the ground up. Henceforth, he brought that significantly innate understanding of the subcontinent’s fullest flavours to the United Kingdom. Soon after, his son Makkadus Khan, worked his way to Sous chef. Grandson Matin then became a well-known Cambridge maître d’.

Time-honoured Recipes

After that, their fusion of time-honoured recipes and ingredients was combined with contemporary culinary know-how. As shown above, it was a winning formula. All of a sudden the business took off with the first independent Indian restaurant in St. Albans. It is also evident in the business’s flagship Indian restaurant, Itihaas in Dalkeith near Edinburgh. Now, almost three decades later, Matin extends the family legacy to every customer that walks through the restaurant’s doors.

Award Winning

You may find yourself experiencing Abdul Monaf Khan’s gift of fresh and flavour-packed ingredients. Or taking note of Makkadus’ and Matin’s award-winning knack for friendly service and creative dishes. Whatever your favourite dish may be, you can tell The Radhuni is something more than just another Indian restaurant.
