“In a room full of MPs, Ministers, Lords, Mayors and the elite of our industry, and a distinguished judging panel, we were honoured with this award.
"I want to take this opportunity to thank our passionate team, you guys are brilliant! And of course our loyal customers who nominated us, championed us!! Thank you and thank you again! Our values are always of excellence, and to keep taking the customer experience further.”
The Asian Curry awards, which launched in 2010, are designed to recognise the best in the industry and are organised by the Asian Catering Federation and the Federation of Bangladeshi Caterers UK, which represents 35,000 UK restaurants and takeaways.
