The Ambrette wins Best Grub Award for 'Best Indian'

The Ambrette in Margate has won a national award for 'Best Indian' in Morrison Magazine's Great Grub Awards 2013. Winning the lion's share of nominations from the magazine's readers, the accolade marks out Dev Biswal's restaurant as one of Britain's best local eateries and is a big sign to foodies that Margate is at the cutting edge of modern cuisine.

"We're delighted to have won. But it's our customers who fuel our success" says Dev Biswal, with just a hint of modesty. "We're the people's restaurant. We hold cookery demos at schools and support our local catering college. It's important to give something back." Even the editor of the magazine, Katy Griffiths, admitted Dev's "efforts to give back to the community" were duly noted.

Since founding The Ambrette six years ago, Dev Biswal has brought an entrepreneurial verve to his role as head chef, from launching his own range of curry sauces for supermarkets to ensuring that much of his food is sourced locally:

"We specialise in foraged, wild mushrooms and Kentish lamb," explains Dev. "We offer a unique marriage between exotic produce and spices and the things that grow around you."

Sounds yummy, don't you agree?! It's wonderful to see that all Dev's efforts have paid off - we're very lucky to have a local restaurant that's so well-acclaimed. Well done, Dev - Margate salutes you!
