Asian Restaurant Awards 2023: All 35 Greater Manchester restaurants shortlisted

These Asian restaurants in Greater Manchester have been shortlisted for the Asian Restaurant awards 2023.

The nominations for this year’s Asian Restaurant Awards have been announced and 35 restaurants and takeaways in Greater Manchester have made the shortlist.

The awards, which are run by the Asian Catering Federation, celebrate food from all over the continent, including: Bangladeshi, Burmese, Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Middle Eastern, Pakistani, Singaporean, Sri Lankan, Thai, Turkish and Vietnamese cuisines.

In total, 100,000 votes were cast by the public for their favourite local restaurants.

The judges are now visiting all locations to decide who will win in each catagory. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Manchester at the end of July.

ACF chairman Yawar Khan said: “Vital for thriving high streets and the health of local economies, independent restaurants deserve praise for their fortitude and resilience. In the face of rampant food inflation, rising utility bills, raised bank interest rates, staff shortages and customers hit by the cost-of-living crisis, restaurant owners need to compete on quality – not price.”
