A multi award-winning Buckinghamshire Indian restaurant celebrated another big win at the “Oscars” for best British curry.

UK’s top curry restaurants were announced at this year’s British Curry Awards supported by the food delivery app Just Eat.

Following a public vote by British diners, Malik’s Express Kitchen and its team in Gerrards Cross bagged the Best Takeaway award at the star- studded ceremony held in London’s Battersea Park on Wednesday (November 28).

Manager of Malik’s Syed Hussain said: “British Curry Awards is the British Curry Awards – it’s the Oscars of our industry!

“We’re very privileged and very proud, because this is not the first time got it as well.”

Curry fans can enjoy Malik’s in Cookham and Marlow also, and all the group’s branches made the shortlist at this year’s awards “cementing Malik’s reputation amongst the best-of-the-best top 100 establishment in Great Britain,” the company said.

At the 2022 awards ceremony, TV and sports personalities came to celebrate with chefs, restaurant owners and staff, including

This Morning’s Hayley Sparkes, Chris Tarrant and Nadia Essex of Celebs Go Dating fame, Channel 4 First Dates Dr Ranj Singh and Merlin Griffiths, former England footballer David Seaman and Chris Grayling MP.

In a video message, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak thanked all curry restaurants “for everything you do to fill our high streets and our homes with some of the best curry in the world”

He said: “The thing I've learnt about being Prime Minister is that the best training I ever had was working in a curry house.

“I know how hard every one of you works from the chefs to the waiters to the restaurant managers and the delivery drivers. And that experience gave me a huge appreciation of business, of the importance of treating people fairly and the value of this most iconic of British Asian industries.”
