A POPULAR Indian restaurant in Lees really is bringing the spice of life to the community as it celebrates ten years in business.
Mr Raman began his journey in the food industry when he opened Lees Tandoori 31 years years ago – and the takeaway is still going strong on the village High Street.
Such was the demand from customers who came from far and wide that he jumped at the chance to start a restaurant – Lees Spice Lounge – just opposite.
And now as they celebrate a decade in business, Mr Raman has given the restaurant a refurb from top to bottom to ensure a fresh and contemporary look.
He reflected: “The takeaway was doing so well and we had customers coming from all over the area so I decided we needed a place for them to stay and sit down.
“We expanded into the restaurant and it’s been fantastic.”
The restaurant, manned by a team of 12 staff, can seat up to 58 covers and offers an extensive menu from Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Sri Lanka and the districts of Punjab.
Their chefs observe the true traditions of cooking, using the finest fresh ingredients to create food of the highest standard and quality.
And Wednesday night sees them serve up a special treat, their Tapas Night for just £11.95 per person which attracts diners from across the borough (booking essential).
If you’re thinking of celebrating there this Christmas or New Year, book early to avoid disappointment. Their menus are available online, including both Indian and traditional food.
Meanwhile, upstairs is an intimate function room ideal for any sort of event, and which can be hired out for no charge. It seats up to 70 people and has its own bar.
