Asha’s in Birmingham’s Newhall Street is celebrating after being named the best spice restaurant in the Midlands by the British Curry Awards.

It is the second major honour this year for the Indian restaurant and cocktail bar which proved too hot for the rest of the 16-strong shortlist – it was previously named winner of the Restaurant Award in the Asian Business Awards Midlands 2016.

General manager Domnic Norunha said: “We are thrilled, proud and delighted.”

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: “Our thanks go to our valued customers and hard-working team, without whom winning awards like this would not be possible.”

The British Curry Awards have built a reputation as being the “Curry Oscars”.

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

“To be recognised in this way by our peers just as we are celebrating our tenth anniversary is particularly poignant and gratifying,” added Mr Kenth.

The restaurant is recommended in the Michelin Guide 2015, is listed as one of the top 130 restaurants in Britain for under £50 by the Sunday Times, and has also been awarded a certificate of excellence from Tripadvisor.

Asha’s facilities include a bar lounge, meeting rooms and private dining in addition to the main restaurant area, and is a popular venue for private parties and corporate events.
