Michelin Star Hopes For Barnsley Restaurant

Tuesday June 17 2014

A CURRY chef has set his sights on his Barnsley restaurant becoming one of the first Michelin-starred Asian establishments.

Jakir Hussain Liton, of the Dilraj on High Street, Dodworth, attended an exclusive workshop at the London’s Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel with restaurant manager Miron Rahman.

It was organised by the Curry Life magazine to raise the standard of British curry houses.

Michelin stars are considered the pinnacle of achievement in the culinary world but there are relatively few Indian restaurants which have achieved the honour.

Jakir was awarded a special certificate in recognition of his dedication and commitment to raising the standards of food and service in the business.

He said: "I am already beginning to plan the changes and customers can look forward to exciting new menus which include local produce in the coming months."

It's good but it's no where near good enough for a Michelin Star I'm afraid. I do hope that he can raise his standards high enough but I think we may be waiting a while
