Zaman's unique culinary skills are honoured

The Lifetime Achievement accolade from the Asian Curry Awards is a huge triumph for Zaman, celebrating his artistic style and love of experimental cooking. His unique culinary creativity fast tracked Zaman to head chef status at The Sportsman - the restaurant soon being named after him too. This award is also recognition of his commitment to offering the very best dining experience that is both accessible and affordable for customers.

With over 30 years’ experience in the restaurant industry, Zaman’s personally designed halal menu includes many mouth-watering delights, such as wagyu steak at one of London’s lowest prices. It also features an array of chefs specials from around the world - such as, lamb kebabs and Farruj Mussahab - as well as more traditional main courses - like grilled meats and fish, lamb cutlets and risotto.

Zaman says “It is a huge honour to win such a prestigious award. It's always nice when people recognise that good taste is guaranteed at Zaman. Fusion food is my passion, and I have enjoyed working with customers at The Sportsman over the years to evolve our menu to meet their specific needs and desires. I am very proud to be able to offer Londoners some of the finest cuisine the capital has to offer."
