Town on the culinary map as two restaurants land awards

Indian restaurant Viceroy, on<br/><br/>Earle Street, Yeovil, has been listed in<br/><br/>the British Curry Awards for<br/><br/>the fifth time in a row.


INDIAN and Italian food available


in Yeovil is among the best


in the country, according to restaurant


judges.


Indian restaurant Viceroy, on


Earle Street, has been listed in


the British Curry Awards for


the fifth time in a row, while


Italian eatery Tamburino in


South Western Terrace has won


a platinum award from the


Pizza, Pasta and Italian Food


Association.


Both restaurants were in the


awards after being nominated


by customers. Inspectors then


made under-cover visits to test


the food and service. Tamburino


was awarded for being


among the best independent


pizza restaurants in Britain.


Restaurant owner Dominico


Taravella said: We are really


proud of the fact that the restaurant


was at the awards. We


were up against some big city


restaurants, lots of them in London


and Glasgow. We have put


Yeovil on the map in a small


way.


The award given to familyrun


Viceroy places it as one of


the top 10 best curry houses in


the South West and in the top


100 nationally. It has won an


award every year since the British


Curry Awards were founded


five years ago.


Staff from the restaurant


along with family and friends


attended the national awards


ceremony at Battersea Park


Evolution Centre, London, last


month. The event was hosted by


broadcaster Trevor McDonald


and attended by Tory leader


David Cameron, whose favourite


curry is chicken balti.


Viceroy opened in Yeovil in


1994 and now has six restaurants


with the latest recently


opened in Dunkeswell in Devon.
