Abul’s Spice, the award winning Bangladeshi / Indian restaurant in Corwen, will be open on Christmas Day giving three-course meals free of charge to the elderly and the homeless.

In true Christmas spirit, the restaurant’s chef-proprietor Abul Hussain is opening his doors to those who may not have someone to spend Christmas with, or even somewhere to spend Christmas. 

“I want to give back to the community that has given me, and my business, so much support,” Abul said. 

“To me, Christmas this year is an opportunity to do something for others and I’m looking forward to meeting those who would like to visit my restaurant on Christmas Day.” 

Abul’s Spice will also be delivering three-course meals from Christmas Eve through to New Year’s Eve to all care and residential homes within twenty miles of Corwen, providing his award-winning dishes to the individuals who may not be able to get out and about, especially at this time of year.

Corwen town councillor Tony Sutherland said: “Personally,  I think that's very, very generous at this time of year. There's a lot of people who aren't as fortunate as some of us are and it's a nice gesture to think of people who may not have the opportunity of a decent meal.

“It's a very kind thing to do.

“I think I can speak for the rest of the town council to say we support what they're doing.

“We hope that people will take them up on the offer. 

“It's nice to extend a hand of friendship to people who are lonely and want a bit of camaraderie and community as well.

“Christmas can be an especially lonely time of year so it's a lovely opportunity to come in somewhere and talk to people."

Set in the heart of Corwen, Abul’s Spice brings authentic Bangladeshi flavours and local Welsh produce together, creating quality cuisine. 

Since opening in November 2012, Abul’s Spice has won 'Best Indian Establishment in Wales' at the 2016 Food Awards in Wales, and in 2015 it was crowned 'Welsh Curry House of the Year' on the BBC series ‘Curry Wars’.
