Date published: 09 November 2019

The Milnrow Balti Restaurant and Takeaway has been named Curry Life Award’s Best Restaurant in Greater Manchester.

At a ceremony in London on 3 November 2019, The Milnrow Balti was nominated alongside 600 other restaurants, but was ultimately crowned the best in the business.

Manager of The Milnrow Balti, Mohammed, said: “It was an absolute honour receiving this award. It made me, and still does make me, feel rewarded for all the hard work one goes through.

“We are grateful for everyone who has been part of this journey, not to forget our customers, as this wouldn’t have been possible without their brilliant feedback. Thank you to all.

“We intend to carry on delivering exceptional food and service.”

Located on Dale Street, Milnrow, The Milnrow Balti was established in 1998, serving quality Indian cuisine in Rochdale.

Mohammed added: “The Milnrow Balti has a reputation of serving consistently high-quality food. There is lots of competition around, however with exceptional food and service we have won the hearts and minds of a loyal customer base.

“We are extremely proud of our food and always look for ways to improve. Our chef regularly innovates new dishes and trying to take our food to new levels.

“Running a successful restaurant is about giving the diners an overall food experience, and this is something we are very focused on.”

The Curry Life Awards was launched in 2009 and since then, has become the most celebrated annual event for British curry houses. The annual ceremony rewards and recognises the individuals who represent the very best of the British Curry Industry, who have shown innovation and inspiration to their work.
