An Indian and Bangladeshi restaurant has been named as the best in Brick Lane.

Masala scooped the ‘best of Brick Lane’ category in the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards (ARTA) last week.

Its website states it serves ‘traditional and contemporary Indian cuisine’ from ‘curries to tandoori clay oven baked delights as well a delicious array of seafood dishes’.

Mohammed Munim, ARTA founder, said: “These awards are truly based on the highest of merits and we wanted to ensure that when your future customers see that you have won an award, they’ll know that you’ve achieved one of the highest honours in the industry.”

Attendees at the award which was hosted by television chef Ainsley Harriott and BBC news presenter Samantha Simmonds included Sir John Vincent Cable, leader of the Liberal Democrats.

Other winners on the night included Grand Trunk Road in Ilford which was voted the best restaurant and takeaway in east London.
