It has been quite a year for the establishments as both were successful at the English Curry Awards and Dhamaka also won an accolade at the Asian Restaurant Awards.

Speaking after the event, which was attended by a number of MPs, Abdul Muhit said: “It is an honour to receive this award for both of my businesses, but I must say that it wouldn’t be possible without the support of our communities. I would like to thank everyone who continues to support us.”

Abdul Salam, restaurant owner at Dhamaka added “I am speechless. To be sat at the House of Lords with Members of Parliament is an honour for me and my uncle (Abdul Muhit).
