A total of 24 cafes and restaurants were nominated by the food-lovers of St Albans – providing a sumptuous task for our hungry mystery shoppers and judges.

Councillor Melvyn Teare, introducing the award, joked that his strict new diet had prevented him form frequenting all the establishments concerned but was fulsome in his praise of quality of dining available in the city.

Eventually overall winner, Chez Mumtaj, claimed victory in this category, ahead of Freddie’s, in Adelaide Street, Bar Espresso, in Victoria Street, Café Nes, at the Alban Arena, and Kashu, in Hatfield Road.

Owner and executive chef Chez Mumtaj said: “I feel very proud of this award and very grateful to all my customers.”

Funny that. When ever I have been passed Chez Mumtaj it is always empty!
I know somone who even got chased by the waitress for 'not' leaving as much tip as they are used to receiving!!

I thought last night’s Retailer of the Year was the best yet, certainly well received by the 300+ audience who joined in the fun. Well done The Review, Civic Society, Chamber of Commerce and those Councillors and Council staff who helped organise the event along with Roma. St Albans has great retailers who deserve to be celebrated and that’s precisely what happened last night.
