A restaurant on the outskirts of Norwich has been recognised in the annual English Curry Awards 2018.
Giyash Miah, originally from Bangladesh, was named General Manager of The Year for his work at Tamarind Fine Indian Dining restaurant on Blofield Heath.
The 42-year-old has worked in the catering industry for 25 years and at Tamarind for the five years it has been established.

'I've been cooking all my life,' he said, 'so I really know which combinations work and I can always advise on which foods go together.'
The award was conferred on Mr Miah at a black tie event in Dudley which took place on September 17.
