Birmingham's Maharaja Restaurant has been named the best in Britain by a BBC food magazine.

The city's oldest and finest Indian restaurant, established in 1971, has won the Top Quality Indian award in a culinary roll of honour in the latest issue of Olive magazine.

It was chosen from hundreds of Indian restaurants for its "superb curries" and "excellent tandoori specialities" served in "an elegant and civilised setting".

Nat Batt, the restaurant's proprietor, said: "We are delighted to receive this accolade by such a prestigious publication.

"It confirms our commitment to serving the finest authentic Indian food using a tandoor oven from India and spices prepared on our premises".
