Naaz was one of the most iconic Indian restaurants in the area

The Naaz restaurant in Bamber Bridge is set to reopen in six to eight weeks.


The restaurant has a new owner who intends to have the iconic restaurant back open serving traditional Indian food ‘with some slight twists’.

The Naaz originally announced its closure back in April citing inflation and a reduction in disposable income of customers.

The new owner is Mohammed Enayet, who already runs the Silk Route on Strand Road, and is the son of Mr Ali, who ran Preston’s first Indian restaurant The Kismet from 1957 until 1990.

He told the Lancashire Post: “It was such a shame when the Naaz closed in April, but we are confident we can get it back to its best for the people of Bamber Bridge.
