Indian takeaway shortlisted among top five in the South West

Masala at Pilton has been ranked among the top five takeaways in the South West after being chosen as a finalist for the British Takeaway Awards.

Owners the Rahman family will find out their national ranking during a star-studded awards night on November 9 at The Savoy Hotel in London.

The takeaway is the only one in Devon to be chosen, after customers voted for it through the Just Eat app and website.

The family would like to thank all their customers for their support.

Brothers Mahmudur and Monzur took over the business from their father Lucas in 2009.

Monzur said: “It’s a hard job and with the effort and hard work we have put in, this feels like a great achievement.”

Mahmudur added: “When you get something like this happening then you get recognition and it gives you that motivation to work harder and achieve more.”
