Brighton, Horsham, and Crawley restaurants shortlisted for 'best in region' at top Asian food awards

Tarana Bar and Grill near Crawley has been shortlisted with a chance to take home the ‘Restaurant of the Year – South East’ title at the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards 2022

Three Indian restaurants from across Sussex are to battle it out to be crowned ‘Restaurant of the Year – South East’ at a top Asian restaurant award ceremony in London next week. Pavel Indian in Brighton, New Haldi Indian in Horsham, and Tarana Bar and Grill near Crawley have each been shortlisted to take home the ‘best’ title at the red-carpet event at the InterContinental Hotel this weekend (October 2).

It comes as the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards 2022 (ARTA) aims to celebrate excellence, creativity, and great taste in the craft. To do this it will bring the most prestigious Asian restaurants and best chefs together under one roof.

The three Sussex establishments to make the shortlist are among those narrowed down in a survey responded to by more than 70,000 people and out of 2,370 restaurants and takeaways spotlighted by ARTA. A final judging panel will now announce the winner in each region as well as in categories including National Champion of Champions, National Takeaway of the Year, and National Chef of the Year.

Additional categories will also champion newcomer restaurants and restaurants serving Thai, Chinese, and European cuisine. ARTA said it hopes to shine a spotlight on the pinnacle of restaurants and takeaways from a starting point of thousands.

The awards also claimed that the UK’s curry industry now contributes £5 billion annually. This is as well as highlighting that there are now said to be more Indian restaurants in London than in Dehli and Mumbai.

The red-carpet event will be hosted by journalist and broadcaster Samantha Simmonds and magician Paul Martin. Speaking on the awards founder member and CEO of ARTA Mohammed Munim said: “Britain has some of the most vibrant and dynamic Asain restaurants, and they are an integral part of the fabric and culture of the country.

“The ARTA awards are a celebration and recognition of these exceptional restaurants, takeaways, chefs, and restauranteurs all across the country, who are serving their local communities so exceptionally well.” He added: “Each nominee is a worthy winner and we look forward to celebrating with them all at the award ceremony on October 2.”
