Finalists for the 13th Scottish Curry Awards 2020 are revealed

Finalists for the 13th official Scottish Curry Awards 2020 are now revealed.

The curry campaign has been hugely successful across the UK with Scottish, English and London editions to the awards.

Nominations came in from the central belt to the Highlands, reflecting Scotland’s love for South-Asian cuisine. The Scottish 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.

The renowned black-tie awards ceremony will take place on 6th April at Glasgow’s Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The 13th Scottish Curry Awards 2020 are organised by Oceanic Consulting – the UK’s leading ethnic awards company. CEO Irfan Younis said “The Scottish Curry Awards were one of our first and remain one of our best awards. It’s always a brilliant night of fun, food and celebration. Despite the many challenges facing the curry industry, these awards prove year after year how much talent there is fuelling the industry, satisfying all of our curry cravings. Best of luck to all finalists.”
