"To come up against so many top restaurants and win really has made our year," Sadik said.
 
"There's so very few second-generation restaurants that are still going strong after 50 years, so to be recognised for that makes it even more special."
    
The Khyber became Wiltshire's first Indian restaurant in 1962 and is still run by the same family today.
