It’s once again, the Golden Chopsticks Award is now LIVE, so put down that Prawn Cracker and vote

Sponsored by Just Eat and led by chef and celebrity Gok Wang, the Golden Chopsticks Awards celebrate the enormous contribution of East and Southeast Asian cuisine to the UK restaurant industry and champion those who work there.

Any restaurant can enter for free, whether it’s your cheap and cheerful local takeout, or a stylish urban establishment where your bank balance takes a hit.

And when you vote you have a chance to win £500 CASH PLUS a £150 voucher to a GCA winning restaurant PLUS a basket from Lee Kum Kee sponsors

The 19 award categories represent not only the excellence of East and South East Asian restaurants across the UK, but also the contribution of suppliers, supermarkets, food editors and individuals to the growth of East and Southeast Asia’s food sector.
