THE aptly-named Brilliant Restaurant in Southall is hot, hot, hot, after scoring a hat-trick at The British Curry Awards.
The venerable eaterie in Western Road, one of the oldest in west London, was one of 11 winners this year at the prestigious ceremony, hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald, in central London on Tuesday night.
Conservative party leader David Cameron was among the 1,500 guests who saw the Brilliant Restaurant pick up the award as the top curry restaurant in the London Suburbs for the third year running.
Owner Gulu Anand said he was delighted with the win: "It's fantastic. This is the third year running we've won so we're definitely doing something right."
Mr Anand said the venue's continued success was down to a combination of sophisticated surroundings and excellent food.
He said: "In 2007 we refurbished the entire restaurant, offering the sort of dining experience that people would expect in London's West End.
"We've improved the service and our overall product, and we insist on the finest ingredients."
Mr Anand said the restaurant has also made a push towards making their menu more healthy, with an emphasis on less fat and a better blend of spices in their dishes.
The British Curry Awards are recognised as the Oscars of Britain's £3.5billion spice restaurant industry.
