AN INDIAN takeaway in Leigh which promises to deliver restaurant-quality food to customers’ front rooms is reopening after a month-long closure.

Asia Leigh, in Elmsleigh Drive, closed suddenly in February following a death in the family but is now ready to reopen.

Bosses have used the unexpected closure as a chance to develop a new expanded menu.

The family-run takeaway is led by head chef Ali Abbas Khan, who also owns Indian restaurant Asia Benfleet, in High Road, and he is over the moon to be getting back to business on Wednesday.

He has promised customers the takeaway will be delivering all the family’s signature dishes at restaurant quality.

Waheed Khan, 28, co-manager of the takeaway, said: “We have redone our menu entirely and we have more speciality house dishes that are able to be delivered.

“We have been working hard to develop our menu to ensure we have the best quality of food and we have been working hard to make sure we are the best for the reopening.

“Some of our speciality dishes are the Iraqui Lamb, which is a tender piece of meat with fresh ginger that was featured on national TV in the 1990s as one of my dad’s signature dishes.

“Our Asia Flame dish is also only served in restaurants, we adapted that, and my dad is the only person who knows that recipe, people will go crazy for that one.”

Mr Khan added that the “massive loss” of his grandfather had a huge impact on the business, which only opened last May, and is urging customers to show them support when it reopens.

“For the last month we have been barely surviving, for us this was a massive loss and a financial hit,” he said.

“We need all the support we can get from people to be up and running again.

“Asia Leigh will be primarily run by my older brother, Suag Khan, and my dad will be going there to get everything set up, we have three generations of chefs to deliver the best we can.”
