Yum Cha Noodle Haus located at Hilton Surfers Paradise has won the Best Asian Restaurant category in the 2013 Savour Australia™ Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence – QLD

More than 250 restaurants and caterers were recognised at the 2013 Savour AustraliaTM Restaurant & Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence at the Brisbane City Hall on Monday 9 September.

Showing the diversity of hospitality businesses throughout the region, over 35 categories were hotly contested this year.

The Awards for Excellence is the most dependable and authoritative guide to Australia’s best restaurants and caterers, which has set the national benchmark for objectively recognising and promoting best practice.

The Awards for Excellence are judged by a team of trained judges who anonymously visit the venues to determine the winners.

Scores are based on the entire dining experience of that one judge on a specific evening.

Restaurant & Catering CEO John Hart says, “The winners should be proud that they have been judged and rigorously reviewed in one of the most objective awards systems, which looks at the entire dining experience, rather than a single food or service dimension”.

Yum Cha Noodle Haus will now compete with other region finalists in the National finals to be held at Royal Randwick in Sydney on Monday 28 October.

Restaurant & Catering Australia represents thousands of restaurant and catering businesses operating across Australia.

Each year about 1,500 members are reviewed in the Awards for Excellence, which is not only a great promotional and accreditation program for businesses, but also assists consumers in identifying some stand out establishments.
