London: the "champion" of curry
1st December 2014

No need to debate over the best curry in town...the panel at the British Curry Awards have done it for you.

The estimated 10,000 curry restaurants across the UK add around £3.6 billion to the UK economy. The British Curry Awards, described as "the Oscars of curry", celebrate the chefs and businesses serving the nation's favourite dish.

This year around 200,000 nominations were received from the public.

Enam Ali, who started the event in 2005 said London is the "champion" of curry in Britain. He explained to Alison Earle how the prize-giving has changed over the past decade.

Other famous curry fans in attendance included ex-England goalkeeper David Seaman, Adil Ray the creator of Citizen Khan and the Home Secretary Theresa May.
