ANYONE who has been to Indian Balti on Kirkwood Rd can attest to its quality, authentic meals.

It's why the restaurant has been nominated for The Observer's Westpac Best in Business 2014 awards.

"We have quality controls," owner Ajay Bakshi said.

"Everything is cooked fresh. We only cook once the order is received."

The restaurant opened in early 2012 and Mr Bakshi said the business had built a loyal customer base.

"Because we are the only Indian restaurant in Gladstone, which is supporting the community outright," he said.

"We support every event happening in Gladstone.

"We've become part of the community."

Indian Balti is currently competing against last year's winner, Rocksalt, for 2014 honours.

Nominations are slowly coming through, so your vote will still make an impact.

If there's a local business that you think needs to be recognised, make sure you find the time to give them a vote.

Nomination forms appear about three times a week in The Observer and entries close on September 23.

Award recipients will be revealed in October.
