Masala Tandoori received the Gold Award with 4 stars for Quality of Services from the Affiliation of Master Chefs (U.K.) Limited in 2006 for great quality food at excellent prices and standards.

Following their excellent performances Masala tandoori proudly sponsors two excellent football teams, Hirst park middle school and Seaton Hirst middle. Then for a local business to seek them out for sponsorship was a great way to start their season in the school division.

With both teams doing exceptionally well, having Masala Tandoori on their strips is an honor. Mr Karim has made a lot of donations to the teams, exciting team raffles, quizzes and discounted food.
As all three of his children studied at Seaton Hirst middle and Mr Karim is close with both Mr lowe (Seaton Hirst sport teacher) and Mr Davison (Hirst Park sport teacher).
