Ziauddin Sardar named The Curry Mile one of the books of the year in New Statesman Magazine and wrote, "The Curry Mile by Zahid Hussain tells the story of a young, rebellious Muslim woman who is forced to rescue her father's restaurant business in Manchester's Asian area. Squabbling families with overbearing fathers, neighbourhood business feuds, charlatan mystics, music and mayhem - all human life is there".
