Finalists for the second London Curry Awards are revealed

Finalists are now revealed for the 2nd London Curry Awards, following the massive success of decade-long Scottish and English Curry campaigns.

A list of talented and dedicated individuals from London’s leading curry houses was compiled and is now live after public nominations flooded in from across the capital; the London 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 and host every guest. The renowned black-tie award ceremony will take place on 1st July at London’s Brentford Lock Holiday Inn Hotel.

The London Curry Awards 2019 presented by Greenleaf Catering are brought to you by Oceanic Consulting – the UK’s leading ethnic consulting and promotions organisation. With years of experience, they hold various world-class award ceremonies throughout major cities in Scotland, England and recently Ireland. Oceanic Consulting events are a major fixture in the calendars of both the Asian community and wider population and generate media interest both locally and internationally.

Irfan Younis, CEO of Oceanic Consulting said: “We can’t wait to host the 2nd London Curry Awards following the massive success of last year’s events. London’s general food industry is one of the most exciting and transformative in the world, with curry continuing to play a key role in its evolution and innovation.
