The opening of a new Indian restaurant wowed a full house of diners last Wednesday, including Mayor of Pendle Coun. Rosemary Carroll.
The Mayor and Mayoress were among 300 guests enjoying a complimentary buffet meal and entertainment from live band Biscuit Brothers at the launch party of Suruchi Indian Lounge, Bar and Restaurant, Barrowford.
Conducting a grand opening ceremony, the Mayor urged residents to support the new restaurant, which in turn is hoping to champion fund-raisers in the area.
The restaurant is kicking off its third week by hosting a charity curry night for Holly Grove School, Barden Lane, Burnley.
"The launch party was fantastic," said Co-manager Jitu Miah. "It went better than expected.
"Everyone enjoyed the food. We served a whole lamb, grilled and slow-cooked."
The charity curry night will take place tomorrow at 7pm. Tickets cost £12.95 and can be booked at Holly Grove School with a £5 deposit.
Suruchi is open every day from 5-30 - 10-30pm at 1 Church Street, Barrowford. Delivery service is now available.
