Any nominated establishment in Britain will have a chance to win the award if they receive the highest number of live, public votes on the night.
Jeffrey Ali, director of the British Curry Awards said: “The British Curry Awards 2022 marks the first year without our founder, the late Enam Ali MBE. For decades, he tirelessly dedicated his life towards promoting and championing the UK Curry Industry, cementing The British Curry Awards as an ‘institution’. As the natural custodian of this revered brand, we proudly strive forward with our responsibility to continue his legacy, ensuring The British Curry Awards remain the platform to inspire future generations to push the boundaries and innovate Britain’s favourite cuisine.
“Whilst the international community, especially the UK, faces a continued onslaught of economic uncertainty and political instability, we take solace from the general public who continue to support local businesses such as their local curry restaurants.
“As a consumer forward award platform, our goal is to promote the best in Britain, bringing real value to our nation’s customers. We have received tens of thousands of nominations this year and look forward to announcing the results of our months-long judging process and live vote due to be held at the biggest and most anticipated ceremony on the hospitality calendar.”
