A WESTON couple have re-opened an Indian restaurant which was previously owned by their family.
Sheema and Naz Hoque have opened the doors to Panache in Orchard Street, Weston, which used to be Surma Tandoori, owed by Sheema’s father.
Syed Ahmed owned the business from the 1980s to the early 2000s and now the couple have taken over and given the venue a new look.
Sheema said: “We have revamped it, made it look more elegant, and are trying to give it a new look. We want to create a place for fine dining with a relaxed atmosphere.
“Naz has been in Weston for years and has had a restaurant on the Boulevard and it feels good to take on this place, I’m really happy.

Naz and Sheema hope to give customers in Weston a unique experience with some of Sheema’s own recepies, an a la carte menu and alternative options on their take-away menu.
