Shropshire Restaurant Wins Best UK Thai Eatery

The King and Thai in Broseley, Shropshire, are winners of prestigious UK Thai Eatery - Asian Curry Restaurant of the Year Award

At a star studded ceremony held at the London Lancaster Gate Hotel last night, over 400 restaurateurs, and industry specialists packed the opulent dining suite, to hear the nominees and lucky winners.

The King and Thai were praised for their fresh produce and true authentic Thai cuisine, and commended for their commitment to customer requirements.

The National Asian Curry Awards are designed to recognise and reward excellence across the whole Asian dining sector in the UK. The awards went to the establishment or person who, in the eyes of the panel of expert judges, had made an exceptional contribution to the UK curry industry. Chef Suree Coates today commented“ We were so delighted to be nominated, and then to win is unbelievable. To be recognised for our achievements by this highly prestigious award and be amongst such successful fellow nominees is way beyond our wildest dreams” Since their move from Ironbridge to the Forester Arms in Broseley, The King and Thai have beenwowing customers from across the region, and beyond, with their focus on authentic Thai Cuisine, fusing with local ingredients including meats from the local butchers, 28 day aged steaks for their signature ‘Weeping Tiger’ free range eggs, and fresh fish from Birmingham market, which Suree goes to choose early every Friday morning, plus her incredible desserts.

Suree adds  “This award helps recognise the dedication of our team, and the support and on-going feedback from our customers, which we take very seriously. We focus on the best the region has to offer, and ensure that all our ingredients are fresh, and true to traditions – using fresh herbs, and spices, enhanced by our own creations, and fresh sauces – we don’t use any artificial ingredients, and even grow some of them ourselves in our gardens at the rear”. James Day (pictured) of Leisure Marketing Midlands LTD, who supported The King and Thai and Suree at the awards added "This profile award helps continue to highlight the success of the Midlands in not only producing some of the finest produce, but that our chefs also keep raising the standards to compete with, and clearly become, some of the best restaurants in the Country."

The awards were presented industry experts including the founder of the 'Curry Club' Pat Chapman, and Lord Bradford in the presence of media and politicians including Rt.Hon. Simon Hughes MP. Suree adds "We would just like to thank all our customers for their on-going support and the judges for their recognition and kind words"
