Mr Prasad, a professional chef with 14 years of experience, keeps the focus of his Mediterranean-style menu using quality produce.

Other finalists in the Formal Dining category are: Pier 26 Seafood Cafe, Summer Hill; Angelo's On The Bay Restaurant, Cabarita; Qui Ristorante Cafe, Five Dock; Ecco Restaurant, Drummoyne, and Da Franco Incontro Italian Restaurant, Concord.

HUSBAND and wife team, Matthew and Jodi Arthur, who own My Guitar School, Five Dock, are extremely thankful to their students and their families for being nominated as a finalist in the Business/ Professional Services category of this year's TrueLocal Business Awards. This bond with students is in part due to the school exclusively teaching guitar and specialising in small classes with no more than six students in each class. ''We are now in our 10th year of business, teaching students aged from seven to 65 years. The school has grown significantly so we have recently opened a Drummoyne studio with 185 students in total attending our two studios,'' Mrs Arthur said. ''We have a strong following, teaching all levels including experienced guitarists wanting a change in style.''

Catherine Doyle, who with business partner Alana Mclean founded the business 31/2 years ago says: ''It is really lovely to be recognised by our customers with the nomination, as it is really a passion for us and has evolved from the dog-walking business and pet-minding services we started with.'' The business, which uses only gentle quick- release restraints to secure pets, attracts customers seeking a kind, quality grooming service for their pets from a wide area, spanning from Auburn to Leichhardt. Only quality, environmentally-friendly products which are soap-free and safe for all pet skin types are used in the pet grooming service.
