Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards 2016: Best International Restaurant


This new category enables restaurants that serve international cuisine to be recognised. We championed businesses that use the best of Somerset’s produce but use them to produce something other than typical British fayre.

The Somerset Life Food & Drink Awards are one of the biggest events in the local calendar and it is hugely anticipated by the region’s food and drink industry all year round.

We champion the best local producers, suppliers and businesses that are passionate about Somerset and the future of our local environment.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the ‘Best International Restaurant’.

This year’s finalists

Chandni Indian, Burnham-On-Sea

The popular restaurant in Burnham-on-Sea has loyal following of guests who love the vibrant, flavoursome dishes and lively atmosphere. With an extensive menu, there is something for all palettes and spice levels from delicious creamy coconut curries to famously fiery vindaloos.

Thai Elephant, Street

Readers love the fresh, healthy food created at the Thai Elephant and judges were impressed by the use of local produce throughout it’s menu. Bursting with traditional flavours, it’s menu is authentic and varied with staff more than happy to help you to discover something new and exciting.

And the winner is…

The Mitre, Burnham-on-Sea

Judges were impressed with the excellent service and the high standard of food the received at the Mitre and they aren’t alone- readers praised the consistent high standard and presentation of food, all served with a smile by their friendly front of house team.
