After donating 15k free meals Kushi to repoen Essex restaurants
Having donated over 15,000 free meals to frontline NHS staff and the needy during lockdown, Kushi is now preparing to reopen its restaurants across Essex next week.
The award-winning brand will also be introducing some exciting new Indian and Bangladeshi dishes when it welcomes back dine-in customers this coming Monday 17 May.
Although known for its exceptional dining experience, the family-owned restaurant was busy feeding frontline NHS staff, key workers, care home residents, elderly and the vulnerable in Essex and North Kent.
But with hospitality preparing for next week’s easing of covid restrictions, Kushi’s venues in Grays, Romford, Canvey Island, Brentwood, Ockendon, Linford and Tilbury have a number of surprises to welcome back its diners.
Executive Head Chef, Stephen Gomes, has spent time during lockdown tweaking the menu with dishes like Mas Biran – a fresh monkfish-based dish; King Prawn Pardaneshi; Dum Akhni – a popular Sylheti dish; and Lamb Kodu to be introduced in the coming weeks.
“Most curry restaurants offer static menus which haven’t charged for decades,” said Kushi owner Sharif Uddin.
“But by introducing weekly specials, which you see in most other restaurants and pubs, we want to encourage customers to explore new dishes and the chance to share in the rich diversity served in every Bengali home,” he added.
Kushi has been placed in the top 10 per cent of restaurants worldwide by Tripadvisor and was voted Best Venue by the local community during the Government’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme.
Offering free home delivery within a 4-mile radius, while the restaurant, which offers a fully Halal food menu, does not serve alcohol, it does operate a BYO policy.
