IT is hoped a new village restaurant will be curry-tastic!

Tahir Uddin, 45, is bringing a taste of India to Tolleshunt D’Arcy when he opens Ruby’s Indian Cuisine on February 1.

The dad-of-three from Mundon Road, Maldon, is looking forward to running his own restaurant after working at Maldon’s Princess Fish Bar and Tawana for six years.

He has completely refurbished the restaurant in South Street, which used to be an Italian, and has named it after his wife, Ruby, who he has been married to for 18 years.
