Aberdeen’s 8848 Restaurant has been named runner up in the Scotland’s Best Indian Restaurant category at the Scottish Entertainment and Hospitality Awards.
Krish Bhetuwal, director at 8848 and his business partner, Manoj Neupane, attended the awards which celebrated the nation’s favourite eateries, hotels, bars and pubs at a ceremony at the Glasgow City Hotel.
Krish said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been named as runner up at these awards. Being nominated was a terrific achievement for a restaurant that is just 16 months old, but to have closely competed for the winner’s prize was beyond our expectations.”
The restaurant opened its doors in Aberdeen in January 2015 and offers an extensive menu of traditional Indian and Nepalese cuisine with produce sourced from local suppliers across the region.
8848 success recently tasted its first awards success as when it won the Best of Aberdeen at the Scottish Curry Awards during a ceremony held in Glasgow held last month.
The city centre-based eatery can seat up to 75 people in its main dining area and can hold functions in a private area with a separate bar for up to 30 guests.
8848 is open 2pm until 10pm from Sundays to Thursdays and 2pm until 10.30pm from Fridays to Mondays. Lunch, à la carte and all-day tapas menus are available.
The restaurant 8848 was pipped to the Scotland’s Best Indian Restaurant accolade by a Glasgow-based restaurant.
