Brighton’s Indian Summer has been named among the best Indian restaurants in the country, alongside London Michelin-starred eateries in this year’s Best in Britain Awards (BIBA).

The awards are organised by the Federation of Specialist Restaurants and judged by Mood Food magazine.

Indian Summer co owner Minesh Agnihotri, said: “Indian Summer has already been named as one of the top 100 Indian restaurants by the Cobra Good Curry Guide, so to be on an even shorter list in such exalted company as Michelin-starred venues like Tamarind, Benares and Quilion is a fantastic recognition.”

The Best in Britain Awards originated in 1999 to support the growth and development of ever higher standards in the ethnic restaurant sector, giving annual recognition to those restaurants Mood Food editor Peter Grove feels to be exceptional.

Also on this year’s top 50 list are TV chef Cyrus Todiwala’s Cafe Spice Namaste, Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Club, the ornate La Porte des Indes, Cinnamon Club, Gymkhana, Bombay Brasserie and The Ambrette.

Indian Summer edged out several other famous Indian eateries, including London’s Chor Bizarre, Eriki, Gaylord and Veeraswamy, which received ‘High Recommended’ accolades.
