Countdown to Grand Finale


Asian Restaurant & Takeaway Awards

Rewarding excellence, craft, and great taste, the Asian Restaurant & Takeaway Awards (ARTA) is a nationwide celebration of British-Asian Cuisine and the individuals involved in its creation. This British Curry Award asks members of the public to vote for their favourite restaurants and takeaway from across the UK. ARTA will then challenge the regional winners to a series of live ‘cook offs’, before crowning one overall ‘Champion of Champions’. Read More

One of the best Asian Curry Awards in the UK, ARTA gives everyday diners a chance to elevate their most beloved restaurants. The awards will draw attention to the most perfect meals, the most talented chefs, and the highly skilled service staff.

Organised in partnership with ChefOnline and our lead partner, ARTA seeks to reward the men and women who run the country’s best-loved restaurants.


Voting opens at 1pm on Tuesday 22nd January. After this date, members of the public will be invited to vote for their favourite restaurants. Once the votes have been tallied, the shortlisted restaurants will be invited to regional events at fifteen locations throughout the UK to determine the regional winners.

At our final event on TBC, we will announce the regional winners, as well as the overall ‘Champion of Champions’, who will be presented with a custom-made trophy designed by the world-famous Thomas Lyte.

Join us on our journey and vote now to help us find out who truly represents the best of British dining!
