AN award-winning chef is preparing to open his new Indian restaurant - in the middle of the Worcestershire countryside.

Sudha Saha will open entouraj in Cutnall Green, between Kidderminster and Droitwich, later this month.

Sudha Saha is one of the UK’s most celebrated chefs, winning awards and being recognised by both the Michelin and Hardens Guides.

He has also appeared on several television programmes including Channel 4’s Iron Chef, ITV’s Britain’s Best Dish, BBC2’s Restaurant with Alex Polizzi, CBBC’s Disaster Chef, Food Network’s Birmingham to Bombay, and Channel S’s Catering Circle.

The new restaurant will serve up traditional flavours with a gourmet twist when it opens on Tuesday, May 7.

He said: “The team and I have been working hard over the past few months to make entouraj a reality, and we’re thrilled to now be able to reveal the launch of my next restaurant opening.

"entouraj is simply a celebration of flavour, with the finest local produce taking centre stage to create an East-West love affair like no other.

“We aim to bring Indian dining into the 21st century, fusing traditional cooking methods with innovative techniques to create a menu that leaves a lasting impression. Our chefs take the time to prepare, cook and present our dishes in a way that truly defines what entouraj is about.

"I hope everyone will enjoy our brand-new dining experience and fall in love with the food in the same way that we have.”

Sudha joins Ameer Hussain and Shah Hussain in opening the restaurant, which is located on the Kidderminster Road in Cutnall Green.
