Jimmi Harkishin Opens Aagrah Restaurant Crystal Peaks

From the cobbles of Coronation Street to not so sunny Sheffield  Jimmi Harkishin  officially opened  the stunning new Aagrah restaurant at Crystal Peaks to a packed house.

Aagrah Crystal Peaks takes centre stage as the latest in one of the most famous  Kashmiri restaurant chains in the UK and Europe. The new restaurant is close to the Crystal Peaks Retail Park and  is set in it’s own grounds with a large car park.

The stunning world buffet only restaurant will be serving over 60 international dishes daily, prepared by Aagrah’s accomplished chefs .  With over 50 industry accolades, Aagrah are renowned for their high quality restaurants and great Kashmiri dining.

The company’s  Managing Director Mr. Mohammed Aslam MBE said: “We are extremely proud to announce that we have launched this rather significant concept  at Aagrah Crystal Peaks. Our objective is to offer something exclusive and indeed a memorable experience. What sets us apart is simply our proposition, an exclusive World Buffet only restaurant in this region. Our cuisine is very  distinctive and our locations, glamorous,  we believe this to be a perfect combination for an international dining experience”.

The new development has cost  hundreds  of thousands of pounds. This is evident as you drive into the large car park and see the imposing building all on one level. The modern contemporary decor is very stylish without being over the top.   You’re greeted with an impressive bar by the entrance, and to the left a  purpose built  world buffet  section with an open plan theatre kitchen where diners can see live cooking. To the right is a large seating area for dining fitted  with a camera through to the kitchen providing a live feed to the  plasma screens in the restaurant. This allows the customers to see their food being cooked in a high standard and hygienic environment. The large restaurant has dedicated close to 60% of the total space to the kitchen, Buffet and bar and has helped to create 30 new jobs in Sheffield.

A family owned business setup 36 years ago by the founder and Group chairman, Dr. Mohammed Sabir MBE,  Aagrah has 16 restaurants throughout Yorkshire and  employ over 400 staff.

Aagrah also offer their unique dining experience for the home diner. Their range of Tarka Cooking Sauces, Chutnies, Pickles and marinades  offer the same authentic Kashmiri taste to re create at home.
