AN Italian restaurant is set to open in premises that were previously home to a curry house.

A sign on the building in Station Road, Taunton, informs passers by: "Italian restaurant open soon".

The County Gazette is trying to establish who the new owner is.

The previous occupant, Maliha Bengali and Indian Restaurant and Take Away, relocated in March this year.

Business partners Mohammad Islam and Omar Faruq re-opened in premises formerly known as the Taj Mahal Indian in nearby Staplegrove Road.

Their new venture named Maliha and Taj Bengali Indian Restaurant is currently closed to eat in diners due to the coronavirus lockdown.
