Restaurant Profile

Abul Hussain

The Chef - Abul Hussain opened his Indian restaurant in Corwen during a chilly November, 2012. Since then, he has certainly turned up the heat as far as traditional Bangladeshi cuisine is concerned. Originally from Sylhet, a bustling city on the banks of the Surma River in the north-east of Bangladesh, Abul is a dedicated, self-taught chef who prides himself on creating only the best experience for the customers who beat a path to his door. With personally selected spices and fresh, local produce such as Welsh lamb, Abul offers firm favourites alongside award-winning signature dishes.

The Area - Corwen is set on the banks of the legendary River Dee, and has a busy community with a rich heritage. As a designated Area of Outstanding National Beauty there is much on offer for locals and tourists alike. A recently extended steam railway now allows visitors to travel back in time for the short hop from Llangollen to Corwen, and hillwalkers can choose from dozens of different walks starting and ending in the town. The nearby beautiful Snowdonia National Park is a mecca for walkers, hill-runners and explorers alike, and let us not forget that Arthurian myths, fairy-tales and folklore are embedded here as deep as the Dee is old.

The Restaurant - Abul's Spice sits alongside the A5 in Corwen, separated from it by a cobbled pedestrian area and off-road parking bays. There is a vast public car park just round the corner, which is free of charge in the evenings. The restaurant features seating for 50 people, plus seats for those waiting for takeaways. Alcohol is not sold within, but the restaurant does have a Table License, so patrons are welcome to bring their own wine or beer. This can be purchased from the nearby Bargain Booze off-license, or by the glass from the pub next-door - The Harp (glasses can be left in the restaurant).
