The Bombay Restaurant is a family-run and owned business which is currently co-run by Kobir Hussain and his two brothers Sah and MJ and owned by their uncle for the last 40 years.

The restaurant serves traditional Indian cuisine, with their most popular dishes being tandoori dishes and their masala dishes.

It also offers four unique dining spaces including a jungle inspired area for families and a more formal area for events and parties.

Kobir said the awards marks the first award that the business has won since the 90s and has given the family a great sense of pride.

Speaking on the restaurant’s recent success, Kobir said: “There are no words to describe it.

“It’s just phenomenal.

“It's all thanks to the customers who voted and the colleagues who are working hard.”
