The second annual London Curry Awards welcomed 200 guests at the Holiday Inn Brentford on Monday, July 1, in a celebration of the London curry industry.

The London Curry Awards are a celebration of local businesses, where winners are a true reflection of quality and customer service, as they are chosen by members of the general public.

The awards recognised the hard work, determination, impeccable service and efforts of the best London curry establishment and professionals that create and serve delicious dishes at an excellent standard.

The black tie event was hosted by stand up comedian, Aatif Nawaz.

Several of the awards were split into local regions to ensure that smaller businesses from across London are also recognised.
