Aktar Islam

Chef Director Aktar Islam of Lasan Restaurant in Birmingham attended Prince Albert in the late eighties through to the early nineties.  Aktar Islam won the prestigious F Word title after beating off competition from British restaurants.  Lasan received the highest score from The F Word diners, made up of leading food critics, to be crowned the winner by Gordon Ramsay, who made the final decision.

Aktar said, “Winning The F Word competition is an amazing achievement and I’m honoured to have worked so closely with one of the world’s best chefs. This title goes a long way to proving that not only is Indian food one of the most popular in the UK, but that it is more than just takeaways and Tikka Massalas. I aim to create authentic menus that are a true representation of Indian cuisine.”
