Ashiana at North Muskham, near Newark, lends customer suit and tie in last-minute wedding hitch
An Indian restaurant near Newark has proved it serves up much more than award-winning curries.
The Ashiana at North Muskham came to the rescue of a customer who, on arrival to the restaurant, realised he had forgotten his suit for his best friend's wedding.
Kurt Moseley, who was staying in one of the Ashiana's rooms, instead of travelling back home to Stevenage — was pleasantly surprised the restaurant was happy to go above and beyond and lend him a suit and tie.
“Too good to be true," said Kurt. "I arrived and had ten minutes to get dressed for my best friend’s wedding and realised I had left my suit at home in Stevenage.
“The guy who gave us our key sent his wife home to get me a suit. When she returned they realised I had no tie, so they went into the restaurant — knowing the waiters keep ties in there — and gave me a one.
"This doesn’t happen, but it did.
“I arrived at the wedding looking great and my dignity well and truly saved. It turned out to be the thing that everyone remembers the most.
“Later when I came back, the owner of the tie (who knew nothing of what had happened) happily took it back.
“What incredible people.”
The Ashiana said it was always happy to go the extra mile for its customers.
