The French Table, Surbiton
We are delighted to be shortlisted. We love what we do and hope that both our regular guests and first time diners to The French Table can see that. Looking after people, presenting them with beautiful plates of good food and seeing them leave happy and satisfied; planning their next visit is what motivates us to keep driving our business forward. As a family-run restaurant, we know first-hand of the blood, sweat and tears shed and the laughter needed to survive in this industry and so we take off our hats to the other restaurants nominated in this category!
London House, Old Woking but moving to West Byfleet
Restaurant of the year is the best award as it’s all about the team. The service is as important as the food and everyone has pulled together to help us get nominated. Many of our customers have seen us through our journey and we have built up relationships with them that the trust our menu composition and our food delivery. We know some by name, what they like to drink, and will even chose their dishes for them on the night! Taking the time to know the finer details make them feel a part of our LH family and this award.
It is a great honour to be voted as finalists. We won the Woking Advertiser’s curry of the year 2014 and to be recognised by our diners as finalists among the top restaurants in Surrey is a fantastic achievement for us. RaysIndian are always looking to bring our customers new and exciting dishes with innovative and explosive flavours. We are overwhelmed with the support of all our customers and thank them all for their encouragement without them we would not be the successful business we are today.
