The Mowchak has been voted the best rated restaurant in the city of Portsmouth. Please check out the gallery for the award certificate.
The Mowchak has achieved the top rating for food hygiene. Delighted Master Chef Kowsar Miah has vowed, “not to rest on our laurels,” and to “continue the quest to making the best Indian food not just in UK but the entire world.” 

Please view the gallery to inspect Mowchak’s food hygiene certificate.
For the second year running the Mowchak was voted Britain's best Indian restaurant by the prestigious Curry Life magazine. Again, Master Chef Kowsar Miah was crowned King of Curry. And as if that's not enough, head chef Kowsar Miah was awarded Chef of the Year 2012 by the well respected organisation BCA.
Check out the gallery for the latest round of award ceremony pictures and to see the Oscar style statuette awarded to Master Chef Kowsar Miah.
Mowchak's Master Chef Kowsar Miah has been chosen from hundreds of hopefuls to represent Britain at the Taste of Britain Curry Festival in Slovenia.
Master Chef Miah who earlier was crowned "Curry Chef of the Year 2011-12" by Curry Life Magazine, will fly out to the Slovenian captial city of Ljubljana on February 10th.
Chef Miah will showcase his artistic culinary skills between February 11th to the 15th. "This is very exciting and I can't wait to demonstrate what we can do. It'll be an honour to represent Mowchak abroad."

Under the tutelage of Mowchak's former Head Chef, Mr. Ahmed, Master Chef Kowsar Miah was recently crowned King of Curry by the prestigious Curry Life magazine.
Master chef Miah fought off competition from all across the UK to become "Curry Chef of the Year 2011-12."
He proudly received his award from the former Chairman of the Conservative Party and present Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles MP, and former Health Secretary, Mr. Frank Dobson at a gala ceremony in London (picture below).
"I'm delighted to have been crowned the best curry chef in the whole of UK and I intend to go on from strength to strength and get better and better." said the ecstatic winner. "The Mowchak has a proud history of regularly winning these titles and I'm honoured to become part of Mowchak's prestigious roll call of winners."

The Mowchak was nominated for the Pearsons Prize. Narrowly losing out in the "Glass For Retail And Interior Design" category at the awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in Cardiff, the staff are nevertheless proud to have had their unique glass lighting feature nominated for the exclusive prize.
