The British Chinese Food Awards

About The Awards

The Story

The British Chinese Food Awards is the original awards for the Chinese culinary industry, and the highest awards for chefs and restaurateurs of its kind.  

Over many generations, Chinese restaurants have forged the very character of some of the largest cities across the UK. Today, these restaurants bring the creativity, excitement and buzz into the community. We believe that's worth celebrating about. 

Encompassing the rich heritage and respecting the grass root traditions of Chinese culture, we launch ourselves into the 21st century where even today, food is often associated with health, wealth and happiness. 

The British Chinese Food Awards mission is to celebrate delicious Chinese cuisine, entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and sheer raw talent of Chinese restaurateurs in the UK. 

Our Awards encourage participation and will engage communities so that we can give well-deserved recognition to the most skilled in the industry. 

Working together with our judges, sponsors and stakeholders, the Awards will celebrate the finest of Chinese food across Britain.
