The shortlist was determined by thousands of votes from members of the public and the restaurants will be visited by a panel of judges from the ACF who will decide the winners for both national and regional award categories.

Liverpool restaurants: The three local restaurants shortlisted are Mowgli, Lu Ban and Mr Chilli, which all offer a different type of Asian cuisine.

  • Mowgli has two Liverpool city centre locations, and many more across the country. It serves Indian street food in a unique way that truly is an experience for the tastebuds. Currently, the Water Street branch is closed but, the Bold Street venue continues impress.
  • Mr Chilli is a Chinese restaurant on Seel Street, close to a range of popular pubs and bars. The eatery serves up classic Chinese dishes and provides a relaxed dining experience, with lovely Asian interior design.
  • Lu Ban is a popular Chinese restaurant in the heart of the Baltic Triangle, with a unique menu and offerings such as a Chinese bottomless brunch. Lu Ban was recently acquired by Mikhail Hotel & Leisure Group but it will still be led by head chef Dave Critchley.
