A WOKINGHAM curry restaurant owner has launched his third eatery in the town.
Faruk Bhuiya, 44, opened Boishakhi, in Peach Street, on Tuesday last week, with town mayor Peter Lucey cutting the ribbon. He has taken over the premises formerly occupied by the Royal India restaurant.=
The Bhuiya family first opened the Taj Mahal, in Denmark Street, in 1978, and Mr Bhuiya later took over from his father in running the restaurant.In 2004, he opened Baranda, also in Peach Street. His brothers brothers Omar and Sharif are also involved in the family business.
Mr Bhuiya said he is confident the new restaurant will provide an alternative menu to his other two venues. He said: "We will arrange dishes from many areas of both south and north India, including Calcutta and Rajasthan, and also have some Bangladeshi food."
Omar Bhuiya said he expected to be working hard, but was also optimistic the new restaurant could help provide jobs in the town.
He said: "We will be very busy, but that is the whole point of opening a third restaurant!
"The launch night was a splendid success. We hope to be able to offer a lot of jobs. It is very hard for youngsters looking for work at the moment, but we want to give back to the community. We will need more people as waiters, and drivers for the take-away service."
Regarding its new
customers, Faruk Bhuiya
added: "We hope to have local support and aim to make sure everyone will be happy."
