Asha's named number one Indian restaurant in Midlands for the second time!

Asha's Indian Restaurant and Bar in Birmingham's Newhall Street is celebrating after being named the best Indian restaurant in the Midlands by the British Curry Awards.

It is the second successive year it has taken the honour - the first time this has been achieved.

Asha's director Pawan Kenth, who owns the Birmingham outlet in conjunction with business partner Paul Bassi - there are Asha's restaurants around the world - said: "We have won many awards over the years, but this is 'hot' even by our own high standards.

Our thanks go to our valued customers and hard-working team, without whom accolades like this would not be possible.
To be recognised in this way by our peers is hugely gratifying and it is great for Birmingham.
The British Curry Awards have built a reputation as the "Curry Oscars"

They took place at London's Battersea Evolution at a glittering event attended by the great and good of the Asian culinary community.

Asha's is named after famous Hindi singer Asha Bhosle, and opened in December 2006.

Facilities include a bar lounge, meeting rooms and private dining in addition to the main restaurant area. It is a popular venue for TV celebrities, politicians, footballers and leading business leaders.
