ARTA 2018 gives voters the opportunity to celebrate British Asian cuisine by selecting the candidates for the prestigious award, which is announced at the grand finale award ceremony in September at The O2 InterContinental, London.

The regional winners will be challenged to a series of live cook-offs before one overall 'Champion of Champions' is declared, highlighting the highest quality restaurant takeaway with the best staff and most talented chefs.

The acclaimed Bangkok Lounge Group are hoping for support from their legion of regulars who dine with them an average of twelve times a year even as they continually look to expand their restaurants.

Motin Miah, owner of Bangkok Lounge, said: "We'd like to thank our customers for all of their support and excellent feedback as we strive to bring authentic and delicious Thai cuisine on a daily basis.

"We think the quality of our food is good enough to go all the way to the final [of the awards], so please vote for us if you've enjoyed the meals that we hope have been delicious, as over the years we've worked hard to always bring our patrons the highest standard of Thai food."

Having won the St Albans District Chamber of Commerce Community Business Award, they have also been recognised as one of the top Thai restaurants for vegan food to add to a stellar and all-serving reputation.

Bangkok Lounge Group has continued to firm its local renown and not just for excellent Asian cuisine. They sponsor a Shefford youth football team and raise funds for the community pre-school, a registered charity in the town which relies heavily on fundraising and donations, as well as contributing to a breakfast and after-school club for children at Shefford Lower School.

The beloved restaurant located in Harpenden meanwhile has raised over £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and received recognition from Nationwide Building Society for its charitable work.
