A Hatfield curry house is hot stuff after being named the nation’s best at the recent Curry Awards in London. 

Taste of India in Salisbury Square scooped the top prize after being voted the nation's Best Curry Restaurant at the glittering awards night hosted by Curry Magazine at the Royal Lancaster Hotel. 

Restaurant owner Mofiz Ullah, and his son, executive chef Junayd Ullah were delighted to win the award, despite only entering the Curry Awards for the first time this year. 

“What a great tribute for us to be recognised in this way,” said Mofiz. 

“The past couple of years have been extremely challenging for businesses like ours – and it is marvellous to emerge from such difficult times with such a top award. 

"Our success is very much a team effort – and is all about giving our customers the quality of service that they demand and deserve.  

“I'd like to thank everyone who has played a part in achieving this top honour.”
