An iconic Indian restaurant in Bamber Bridge has announced its closure after almost 30 years of trading.Advertisement
The restaurant, located at Club Street in Preston, was one of the very first restaurants of its kind to open in the South Ribble area.
The owners of the eatery cited inflation and a reduction in the disposable income of customers as the reason for the closure.
A statement on their Facebook page said: “It is with a heavy heart that after almost 30 years of great food, delicious wine, wonderful people, fun times, hard work, ups and downs, (and a few Hokey Pokeys thrown into the mix), we have decided it’s time to move on, due to inflationary pressures and stagnating disposable incomes.
“This has been a very difficult and emotional decision and we are so sad to say goodbye.
