Speaking after the ceremony, owner of the eatery Ruhel Hoque Shamim said: “It is wonderful to be recognised in this way. 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.”

He added: “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.”
