A DALRY takeaway is officially the best in Scotland after it picked up two top gongs.

Zains Curry House in the town won the Regional South West award for takeaway of the year and the Five Star Takeaway of the year at the Scottish Asian Food Awards.

Khurum Jabbar from Zains was suitably delighted and him and his team went along to the awards ceremony last week.

He told the Herald: “It was an amazing night. We were up against some really tough competition from all over Scotland. So to be winning an award like this is amazing.

“We just can’t believe it that a small town like Dalry would have the best takeaway in Scotland.”

A humble Khurum knows that it isn’t possible without the support of his staff and customers and added: “I personally would like to Thank all my team for all the hard work they put in and my friends and family for the support I have been getting.

“I would also like to give a huge thanks to my customers.

“I have the best customers in the world, without your support, love and loyalty we wouldn’t be a successful business, so a big thank you to my customers this one is for Dalry! Keep supporting us!”
