Two Taste Inverclyde Indian restaurants are in the running for prizes at the Scottish Curry Awards.
Nominations flooded in from across the country, say organisers, and the awards bash is set to take place on Monday 16 April at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow.
There are a lot of categories to get through – 21 to be precise – but Inverclyde is well represented, with some of the best Asian restaurants in the country competing.
The event is run by Oceanic Consulting this year, and Irfan Younis, CEO, said:
“The Scottish Curry Awards are very important to us with these being the first ever event organised by Oceanic Consulting and that led us on to launch the English Curry Awards and more recently, The London Curry Awards. We have seen the industry grow and flourish year on year despite the challenges that they have faced and we look forward to honouring that at the awards ceremony.”
The evening will also be used to help raise money for The Well Foundation, a charity working to provide safe, clean drinking water for all.
Here’s a list of the two categories that the Inverclyde finalists are in at the Curry Awards:
Restaurant of the Year
Gulab Tandoori (Irvine)
Masala Twist (Helensburgh)
Taj Tandoori (Prestwick)
Annaya’s Indian Restaurant (Helensburgh)
