A DUNFERMLINE takeaway has been crowned the best in Scotland at a national event last night (Tuesday).

The Curry Pot on Linburn Road jointly won the Just Eat award for Scotland’s best Asian Takeaway and Delivery establishment at the 2022 Asian Restaurant Awards. It was announced at the ceremony, which was held at the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh.

They share the accolade with Edinburgh’s St John's Curry Club.

Winners were chosen from over 60 restaurants from across the country, chosen from a shortlist that was determined by more than 10,000 votes from the public.

The winning establishments were chosen by a panel of judges from the Asian Catering Federation (ACF).

Yawar Khan, the chairman of the ACF, said: “We warmly congratulate tonight’s 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.”

The Curry Pot and it's fellow award winners will be included in the ACF's new 'One Hundred Top Curry Restaurants’ guide, which can be found at https://top100curryrestaurants.co.uk/ or in print next year.
