In 1988 he made his mark in the city centre by opening the Bombay Brasserie in its orginal, smaller Broadway location, before moving into the new, purpose-built restaurant he now occupies in 2004.

“I love what I do and I thought 35 years was an anniversary worth celebrating - I won’t be doing it in another 35 years that is for sure,” he said recently..

“I also wanted to repay the loyalty of my customers. I have been successful down the years because of their loyalty and they deserve it.”
