A South Shields restaurant has served up a winning performance in a national awards scheme.
Zeera Indian Cuisine in Ocean Road has been crowned the Indian Restaurant of the Year, Tyne & Wear, in the Corporate Livewire Prestige Awards and will be presented with their trophy in the New Year.
The awards, which have run nationally for 16 years, are recognised as one of the biggest honours in the hospitality industry.

Zeera owner Shah Choudhury said: “What an absolute honour it is to receive this award.

The judging panel base their decisions upon areas such as service excellence, quality of the product/ service provided, innovative practices, value, ethical or sustainable methods of working, as well as consistency in performance.Now 500,000 Prestige member subscribers will be notified of all the winners countrywide.
