What makes the Pride of Sylhet special?
There are thousands of 'Indian' restaurants in the UK, many run by Bangladeshi expatriates serving traditional 'Curry'. However, that word is almost as misleading as the term 'Chop Suey' was to Chinese cuisine. Now, well known local restaurateurs Zia Chowdhury and Omar Shorif are correcting that misdemeanor.
They were born in Sylhet, a city in north eastern Bangladesh that's located on the banks of the River Surma and surrounded by the Jaintia, Khasi and Tripura hills. The region is known for its tea gardens, tropical forests and many lakes. Sylhetis enjoy fish from the lakes and fruits and pickles from the hills of Assam that contribute to the distinct nature of their cuisine.
Zia and Omar bring to Great Dunmow the authentic flavours of Sylheti cuisine at the Pride of Sylhet restaurant. Their reputation for attention to detail, fine ingredients, low cholesterol sunlower oil, no colouring and excellent service precedes them.
So as we learnt to distinguish between the different styles of cooking, why not come and discover an intriguing menu from the Sylhet division of Bangladesh? The regional variations of dishes, cooking and serving styles in the delightful Pride of Sylhet restaurant are bound to please.
Come and try - we look forward to your visit.
