Tussle over the title of Scotland’s best newcomer

Sister restaurants compete for title of best newcomer

Both are among four restaurants shortlisted for the Newcomer title in the Asian Restaurant Awards, which will be announced at a presentation dinner at the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa in Edinburgh on November 1.
