Mint and Mustard, a new Indian restaurant on Station Road, has been opened by Jeremy Browne MP and Taunton Deane Mayor, Steve Brooks. Mint and Mustard is one of the UK’s most critically acclaimed Indian restaurants. It has a successful restaurant in Cardiff and this one in Taunton is the second.
Jeremy Browne said,
“It is great to see such an acclaimed restaurant in Taunton. I was honoured to be invited to open the Mint and Mustard on Station Road, Taunton. To see the dedication and enthusiasm its owner Ajit M Kandoran has for the restaurant and its success in Taunton was fantastic. The investment Mr Kandoran (who lives in Taunton and is a surgeon at Musgrove Park Hospital) has put into Mint and Mustard is brilliant. The change to the building itself is incredible and having celebrity Indian Chef Pramod designing and creating the diverse menu of contemporary Indian cuisine will be very popular with customers.
“I am delighted that Mr Kandoran chose Taunton as the new venue for his restaurant. Such new investment for the town is encouraging, especially as retail and restaurants are two of the business outlets that are finding it tougher in the current economic climate. I am sure Mint and Mustard will be a great success and I know I will be returning!”
Councillor Justine Baker was also at the launch and commented,
“I was delighted to be invited to the opening of Mint and Mustard. It was great to see the launch being made into such a local event, with even the red carpet being rolled out! The food was extremely good and was lovely to attend such a positive event for Taunton, having such an acclaimed and award winning restaurant in the town is a great asset and I wish it great success.”
The Minister and Mayor were joined by 200 guests, from Somerset businesses, borough and county councils and other local institutions for the grand opening.
