“Now in their 7th year the Asian Curry Awards are immensely popular and winning restaurants receive a tremendous boost to their business, when they feature the prestigious accolade in their marketing programme,” said Asian Catering Federation chairman, Yawar Khan, “But the term ‘curry’ isn’t always relevant, as these are the only awards open to all Asian cuisines.
“Although these awards are national, we also want to host an event in the north of England, to make them more accessible to venues outside London and the south east.”
