Asha Bhosle Receives an Inspiration Achievement Award at British Curry Awards 2018.
As unique as her voice, the world-renowned Indian singer and actor, Asha Bhosle, is the driving force behind 17 award-winning culinary destinations.
The high profile opening of the first Asha’s restaurant at WAFI Dubai in 2002 heralded the realization of the second great passion in her life – outstanding Indian food.
In just 15 years, the global Indian restaurant chain has become a firm favorite of regional and international diners with locations in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar and KSA. Plus a further two locations in the UK-Birmingham and Manchester.
Asha Bhosle was honored with the Inspiration Award at the British Curry Awards 2018 in London. Although she couldn’t make it in person it was a wonderful occasion to celebrate her culinary dedication and achievements over the years.
The British Curry Awards, famously known as the “The Curry Oscars” honoured the heros behind Britain’s favourite cuisine at the 13th Annual Awards at Battersea Evolution, London.
The Awards were attended by luminaries from the worlds of politics, sport, arts and entertainment, as well as leading celebrity chefs, restaurant owners and their staff from across the country.

Age has never been a deterent for Asha Bhosle, who still cuts albums and tours the world singing songs that have made her famous across the globe. She ventured into the restaurant business eight years ago following a suggestion from her son, who manages her restaurants and concerts.
The first Asha’s opened in Wafi Dubai in 2002.
Asha still personally oversees the work of the restaurants’ spice master to ensure the essence of her culinary philosophy is imprinted in every kitchen and in the experience of every diner. Aromatic cardamom, piquant chillis, earthy cumin and other spices work in harmony with sweet, bold, spicy and sour notes to create a perfect repertoire of her unforgettable dishes.
