ARTA received more than 2,400 applications from across the country and the winners were selected by a panel of ambassadors and judges.
Syed Forid, the owner of Mother India, said: "We are absolutely delighted to be named as the national newcomer of the year.
"Mother India specialises in serving food prepared in the best Indian tradition from a menu that reflects the great regional diversity of Indian cuisine.
"We thank our customers from Hornchurch without whose loyal support and backing we couldn't have won. They truly inspire us to be the best."
