You're not suggesting some of these awards may be fixed!

I've seen them. Then I shrugged and yawned as it's too predictable.

Even worse when a couple of years back places that had only been open a week managed to win.

Really must get out more, and perhaps more importantly dig deeper in the pocket perhaps!

Been to 3 winners, China Sea, Loca and Limetree! Loca is disappointing in my view even though it does have a genuine Mexican chef!

Always smile when I see Zheng He in the lists. They used to have radio adverts saying the name just as it is written Sadly that is wrong as it is prounounced Jeng Her. I guess they saw it written somewhere but never checked with a Chinese speaker!!

Good to see Mr. Porte to pick up an award. Excellent chef and former squash partner!!
