The new eaterie, called Zaynab, is located in the village of Capel St Mary near Ipswich in premises that were formerly known as the Harvest Moon Cafe.

Owner Sam Chowdhury said there are plans to hold regular music and party nights to entertain diners.

He said: “We have been made very welcome in the village and had a full house with over 100 people turning up to our opening.

“They enjoyed the Bollywwod dancers who performed on the night and we are planning more evenings like that - our next evening event will be an Elvis impersonator on December 18th.”
