AN INDIAN restaurant in Glasgow has scooped a top award.

Charcoals, at Trongate, was voted 'best Glasgow & West of Scotland establishment' at the annual Asian Restaurant Awards (Scotland).

The event, organised by the Asian Catering Federation (ACF) with Just Eat as the keynote sponsor, was held in the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh last night. 

Bosses at Charcoals took to Facebook after their win. 

They wrote: "Thanking you all as we have won an award at Asian curry awards in Edinburgh."

The awards programme recognises Scotland’s best-loved Asian diners.

More than 60 establishments were in the running for an award at the finals with the shortlist determined by more than 10,000 votes from members of the public.

The shortlisted establishments were all visited by a panel of judges from the ACF who determined the winners for seven national and nine regional award categories.

Yawar Khan, ACF chairman, said: “We warmly congratulate the winners at the sixth annual Asian Restaurant Awards (Scotland). They are acknowledged as being among the very best dining establishments across Scotland and are all great ambassadors for the Asian food sector.

“Asian restaurants contribute £5bn to the economy and employ more than 100,000 people across the UK.

"They are also a key feature of Scotland’s food and cultural landscape. We are delighted to celebrate their success and we will continue to support these important businesses, especially during these challenging times with the sector facing rising costs and staff shortages.”

Charcoals were the only Glasgow establishment to take home an award.
