Nominations came in from the central belt to the Highlands, reflecting Scotland’s love for South-Asian cuisine.

The Scottish Curry Awards exist to recognise and celebrate the devotion, service and tasty food provided by the best establishments in the industry, who work their hardest to perfect every meal.

The nominees are:

Cafe Asia – Dining Experience (South West); The Curry Shack – Best Loved Restaurant (South West); Turban Tandoori – Best of Glasgow and Team of the Year; Lassani Tandoori – Takeaway of the Year (Glasgow); Over Indian Takeaway – Takeaway of the Year (Glasgow); New Gandhi Indian Restaurant – Curry Champions of the Year; Mount Cafe – Curry Champions of the Year; and The Courtyard – New Restaurant of the Year.

Irfan Younis, CEO of Oceanic Consulting, said: “The Scottish Curry Awards are very dear to my heart as they were one of the first events ever organised by Oceanic Consulting.

“I’ve watched them grow each year and the campaign evolved to include the English Curry Awards and the London Curry Awards, and I’m especially excited about the launch of Scottish Curry Day this year, which will remind us all why we feel in love with the dish all those years ago.”

The evening will help raise funds for The Well Foundation; a charity whose vision is to provide safe and clean drinking water for all.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Monday, April 15, in Glasgow.
