An Indian Restaurant in Kimberley has won an award for being the best takeaway in Nottinghamshire.
Shalimar in Main Street was awarded for having the best feedback on Just Eat – a website people use to find and order their takeaways across the country.
Farakh Najeeb, who runs the restaurant with his brother said he was ‘overjoyed’ at hearing the news.
“I’m so, so pleased. I really want everyone in Eastwood and Kimberley to know,” he told the Advertiser.
“I’m just so proud that we’ve had the highest ratings. I couldn’t believe it when I heard. I was overjoyed.”
Mr Najeeb said one of things his customers like is the fact that they ring them up and let them know if their food is going to be delivered late.
“We stay in touch and the customers really like that,” he added.
“But overall people just think it’s excellent food and excellent service, which is great.
“The comments also said the staff were friendly.”.
The director of the Just Eat site rang Mr Najeeb from London to tell him he was ‘top of the table’ for customer feedback throughout 2011.
“They said to me ‘you have been doing this consistently for a year and a half and the ratings prove it’,” said the restaurant manager.
The brothers were then presented with a framed certificate by the Just Eat director last week.
Shalimar opened in 2009 and went online in summer 2010.
