Ayr Spice Minishant Restaurant head chef Mafiz Ali celebrates Taste Ayrshire Food Festival

After his highly successful participation in Taste Ayrshire’s Largs Food Festival on 18 August, Ayr Spice Minishant Restaurant proprietor and head chef Mafiz Ali is participating in the weeklong Taste Ayrshire Food Festival later this month, which takes place in the culinary venues themselves. 

Ayr Spice Minishant Restaurant will present five special evenings from Sunday 22 September through to Thursday 26 September as its contribution to this year’s Taste Ayrshire Food Festival.

On Sunday 22 and Wednesday 25 September there will be special tasting evenings on two levels – there will be a £25 Bangladeshi “Thali” (a special tray with five bowls to try different curries and starters etc) for two people, but the Thali is, in point of fact, a very adequate, full meal for the two people concerned and not just a “Tasting”. A £5 “mini-taster” for one person will also be available.

 On Tuesday 24 September a special Thali featuring the “Healthy Option” (seafood and vegetarian etc) will be available also at £25 for two people. 

And finally, on Monday 23 September and Thursday 26 September there will be normal restaurant service with a difference! The difference will be that TV chef Mafiz Ali will give free cookery demonstrations at 7pm and 8pm for the patrons dining in the restaurant on those evenings.

Mafiz Ali commented: “In all my years in the restaurant business, I have always enjoyed supporting the local community and participating in local events like the Taste Ayrshire Food Festival. I hope to see many of my regular customers during the Festival, and hope to attract others to come along to Ayr Spice Restaurant in Minishant and try out our food for the first time.”

Ayr Spice Indian Restaurant

Ayr Spice Indian Cuisine can be found in the fine old red sandstone Memorial church at the entrance to the picturesque village of Minishant, 5 miles south of Ayr on the A77. The church was erected by the thread magnate Sir Peter Coats of nearby Auchendrane, in loving memory of his wife Glorianna, who died in 1877.

Indian food can be simple or elaborate, humble or opulent, within a culinary tradition that is centuries old. The unique gift of Indian cuisine is its inspired use of exotic spices and the finest fresh ingredients. Proprietor Mafiz Ali and his team at Ayr Spice are determined to bring you the best of that tradition, and look forward to welcoming you.

Ayr Spice Restaurant is open 7 days a week from 12 noon until 10pm including Bank Holidays, Christmas and New Year. Takeaway and home delivery are also available.
