The Molson Coors Awards are somewhat unique. As a national award it’s highly-competitive; 8848 had to beat off some serious competition. The success speaks volumes about the Aberdeen restaurant’s achievement. 

In attendance at the event were 8848’s Director, Krish Bhetuwal, and General Manager N Paparao. Speaking to Larder Magazine after the triumph, Krish was asked to share the secret of 8848’s  success? Krish said, “It’s all down to teamwork; teamwork leading to great hospitality and high-quality dishes.”

The award is a fitting way to mark it’s ten year milestone. 8848 opened its doors to the Aberdeen public in November 2014. It’s known for authentic Nepalese and Indian cuisine, and it has become popular with both locals and visitors. Krish revealed to Larder that from a very popular menu there are a few dishes favoured by the regular clientele and “butter chicken,  akabari  lamb, and vegan dal makhani top the list”. Asked if he had seen any changes in dining habits over the restaurant’s ten-year life, Krish remarked that  people always want quality but in today’s world they want good quality delivered quickly, “people might be more time-sensitive now.”

The Molson Coors Scottish Event attracts over 5,000 businesses to compete annually, and is getting bigger each year with strong public support. Those lucky enough to make the final then face a judging process which involves a panel of “esteemed independent judges”.  As part of the process competitors can be asked to submit documentation participate in a live-competitions. The judges’ decision is final.

To win such an event is a significant achievement, well done 8848.
