UK’s top curry chef and his son wins national restaurant title
Matin Khan, who runs restaurants Itihaas in Dalkeith and The Radhuni in Loanhead, was given the accolade of UK top curry chef on Sunday at the Curry Life Awards at the Marriott Grosvenor House Hotel in London’s Mayfair.
In a double triumph the Radhuni was awarded the title of the UK’s best curry restaurant.
His son Habibur, who accepted the award on his behalf, has managed Radhuni since it opened in 2011. At the age of 23 in 2019 he became the youngest person to win a major award in the British Curry Awards.
“It’s a great honour to be described as the finest curry chef in the United Kingdom,” he commented.
“There are so many wonderful chefs working in thousands of restaurants all over the country that I am truly humbled and very proud. My emphasis has always been on developing authentic recipes and working with the finest kitchen and front of house staff.”
