The awards were presented by Sir Graham Brady MP, the Chairman of the Conservative Party’s 1922 Committee.
Addressing an audience of more than 500 of the country’s leading Asian restaurant owners, chefs and local dignitaries, Yawar Khan, Chairman of the Asian Catering Federation, praised the nominees’ "fresh culinary ideas" and their "willingness to embrace the more discerning needs of the public."
The first award to a Leeds venue went to My Lahore, the British Asian kitchen founded in Yorkshire which recently celebrated its 20th birthday. My Lahore picked up the award for the Best Asian Fusion.
As well as its branch in Cavendish Street, just off Kirkstall Road, the restaurant has branches in Bradford, Birmingham and Blackburn. It serves traditional dishes with modern twists, as well as milkshakes, pasta and a range of indulgent desserts.
Based in Bradford Road, it opened in January 2020 shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic, but has managed to become a firm favourite for diners in west Leeds.
