Long-standing Penrith Indian restaurant Taj of the Valley has announced it will close its doors next weekend.
The High Street restaurant will serve its final butter chicken on Saturday night.
It opened 17 years ago and survived the pandemic and Penrith’s changing food scene, and outlasted a number of rival Indian restaurants that opened during that time.
“It is with mixed emotions we announce that Taj of the Valley will be closing its doors after 17 years of feeding the local Penrith community,” the restaurant said in a statement.
“We thank you all for your support and friendship in the past 17 years. We are blessed to have met you, shared our friendship and made so many beautiful memories during your visits.
“Hope you are able to visit us in the next week so we get to meet you and say our goodbyes.”
