Bath City’s much-admired Indian restaurant Bandook wins the Best Restaurant category at the prestigious Bath Life Awards 2024

From its inception to its opening in 2019 in Bath’s fashionable Milsom Place, Bandook has been the name to reckon with when it comes to the city’s famed restaurants and none more so than now as it scoops the Best Restaurant accolade at the esteemed Bath Life Awards 2024.

Held at the iconic Bath Pavillion, the well-attended event boasted a number of new and established businesses amongst its nominees and none more so in the latter than Bandook which was announced to take the top prize much to the jubilation of the audience as the restaurant has carved itself a fabulous reputation for being one of the finest places to dine at for its well-honed mix of authentic, casual dining Indian street food dishes to inventive signature items with their own inimitable modernist twists. Diners lovingly lap it up!

The glitz and the glamour of the annual awards night may have been all inducing yet Bandook’s winning team kept its feet firmly on the ground albeit the evening’s hero proved to be none other than the ecstatic Moe Rahman, Bandook’s Founder and Managing Director.

“I feel so lucky yet so honoured by this award,” said Moe Rahman, “and who knows with all that hard work that not just me but my highly industrious team, both the back of house in the kitchen and the front of house manager and waiting staff, maybe it was just the right time for us to get recognition from the high echelons of this magnificent city. The interesting thing is that when we first opened, it was just before COVID and like so many businesses, it was an awful time. However, we came through it with Bandook now doing better than ever and this award proves as much.”

Bandook’s celebrations don’t just end there with this award as the beginning of a great new year for the restaurant also brings more news in the form of a talented new Head Chef ensconced in the kitchen heralding a new menu coming soon along with some very exciting changes forthcoming at Bandook Bristol – all to be announced soon!
