A RESTAURANT in Bolton has made it into the final round of the Asian Restaurant and Takeaway Awards (ARTA).

Hot Chilli Restaurant in Dunscar Business Park is a finalist in the North West category of the ARTA awards.

Taking place in London on October 13, the star-studded awards will celebrate the UK's huge curry industry, awarding all in the business from chefs to small eateries, food cart owners and five-star curry houses.

The winners will be finalised using data from ChefOnline, which surveyed over 350,000 customers about their South Asian cuisine preference in their local regions.
