Doncaster’s Red Tomato beat off national competition to win the UK’s Best Pizza & Pasta Takeaway Gold Award at a gala dinner dance in London.
Brothers Comron and Darius Hayati received their award from celebrity chef Aldo Zilli, and also met Gennaro Contaldo, pictured.
Comron said: “When you go to work day after day trying to create good food, not even for a second are you thinking of a national award. We like what we do and we give it 110 per cent. However, I have to admit, when you do get an award, it makes it even more worthwhile.”
Founder Parviz Hayati said he was very proud of what his sons had achieved since they bought the business four years ago. The firm is also shortlisted for a Doncaster Chamber of Commerce customer care award.
