Britain’s best curry houses have been crowned in a national awards ceremony celebrating South Asian cuisine. 

On Sunday night, the country’s best restaurants, takeaways, chefs, and personalities were unveiled, after being chosen by 700,000 customers.

Salik Mohammed Munim, Founder of the Asian Restaurant & Takeaway Awards (ARTA), said that each year the bar set by every nominee is raised.

Winners were selected by a panel of judges composed of Chand Rahman, Executive Chef and multi-award winning Celebrity Chef; Mohammed Mujibur Rahman, ex-Mayor of Corby; and Graham Taylor, Senior Chef Lecturer, Cambridge Regional College. 

Restaurants were awarded based on three key factors: Quality of Food, Quality of Service, and Value for Money, were all considered, as well as Food Hygiene Ratings and reviews from websites such as TripAdvisor and Google. 

Restaurants that made it through the first phase were judged and invited to participate in a Cook-Off Competition. The scoring was based on flavour, appearance, texture, hygiene, and aroma.
