Founder of Nawaab restaurants Mehboob Hussain has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement award at the inaugural Asian Food and Restaurant Awards on August 1.

The awards held in London recognise the achievements and positive contribution being made by South Asians across the UK food industry. His Royal Nawaab in Manchester was also named Restaurant of the year North West.

The awards  aim to celebrate these special stories as well as honour the dedication and commitment of those who have spread their love for Asian flavours through their passion to take their food culture to the mainstream.

Hussain, from the Royal Nawaab Manchester, took a chance when he transformed an old cinema into a wedding banqueting suite. The decision has in many ways revolutionised how Asian weddings were celebrated.

Accepting his award Hussain said, “I am truly humbled and honoured. I am lost for words.  All I can say is that it has given me the ammunition and determination to continue with my goals. ”

In a statement to The Muslim News Chair of the awards, Atta Ul Haq congratulated “all the participants and stakeholders of the food industry for their huge contribution for setting legendary benchmarks, be them the waiters, the chefs or the owners.”
