Asian cuisine is an essential and thriving part of the UK’s food scene. Curries, noodles, dim-sum, ramen, roti, fragrant spices and fiery sauces – from Sri Lanka to Japan, we Brits simply couldn’t live without Asia’s immensely diverse (and immensely tasty) variety of cuisine. 

But which Asian restaurants in Britain are doing it best? Well, that’s what the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards (ARTA) are for. The awards are a nationwide celebration of pan-Asian eateries throughout the country and this year’s national and regional winners have just been revealed. 

It’s been a pretty rigorous judging process. The competing restaurants were first determined by customer nominations before being whittled down via a round of scoring based on factors including ​​quality of food, quality of service and value for money and online reviews. Then they were subject to regional ‘cook-offs’ where judges rank dishes according to their flavour, appearance, texture, aroma and hygiene. 

After all of that, the Milnrow Balti Restaurant in Rochdale, Greater Manchester was officially declared this year’s champion of champions. According to its website, the winning restaurant ‘promises an immersion in renowned Asian hospitality. From the moment you step into our establishment, we envelop you in warmth, whether you’re here for a hearty meal, a light snack, or to await your takeaway. The tasteful decor, ambient lighting, and melodic tunes transport you to a realm of rich cultural heritage.’ 

The other national winners included The Chequers Indian Lounge in Ipswich for Chef of the Year, Kaani Kaana in Chelmsford for Takeaway of the Year and Coco Buffet in Weston-super-Mare, which won Newcomer of the Year.
