Mavis’s Kitchen in Uki have won the Tourism Restaurant category at the 2022 NSW Restaurant and Catering Association awards, a great achievement considering that their business had to be rebuilt after the February–March 2022 floods. If you drove the roads around Stokers Siding, Uki, and Tweed after the floods, you’d know the roads that follow the rivers became rivers – Mavis’s Kitchen described their carpark as ‘full of giant trees and smashed cars’.

By April 3 they’d performed a mammoth task of rebuilding, including cabins and previously delightful gardens, and business manager Clive Bailey described the win as ‘an amazing achievement for our team’ given that they had to ‘completely rebuild the property’. The awards organisers say the awards are judged by an independent team of trained judges who visit anonymously.
