15th May 2013 : A Year Of Winners

Since we ended up with 3 previous winners on the calendar, myself and Brian decided to have a whole year of winners - with the exception of Suruchi Too since they have had too many bad visits by the health inspectors.

Hopefully this will make for some interesting voting for this year's restaurant of the year!

30th January 2013 : Restaurant Of The Year (2012) : The Spice Pavilion

In yet another landslide victory, The Spice Pavilion has become the 2012 Restaurant Of The Year !! Obviously still well deserved as it remains at the top of our review table!

The Spice Pavilion has acheived what only one other restaurant has acheived before by becoming Restaurant Of The Year 2 years running.

This in itself is no mean feat as the current holder is always visited in January and has to make a significant impression if they are to be remembered at the end of the year.

Here'a a picture of Imran and Cristina Khan following presentation of their award.

25th January 2012 : Restaurant Of The Year (2011) : The Spice Pavilion

In a landslide victory, The Spice Pavilion became the 2011 restaurant of the year - and very well deserved it was too as it shot to the top of our review table!

Our visit to present their award was no exception: food and service as you would expect, even with a large group of 19 people, which they had the sense to split over 2 tables and put through as 2 orders.

There were a lot of smiling faces around the tables at the end, especially after they all learned of the 25% discount on Wednesday nights!

11th July 2011 : What Flash Floods?

Well the summer special outing to North Berwick's Tiger Coast was a massive success with happy faces all around the table.

Evidentally, Edinburgh had weather a little more severe than we enjoyed in North Berwick, a mere 25 miles away!

What Thunder Storm?
