Started from 2009, the Curry Life Awards is an annual celebration of British Curry Industry. CURRY LIFE AWARDS reward and recognises the individual who represent the very best of CURRY Businesses in Great Britain and shown innovation and inspiration to their work. Each year the awards are given in different categories and interested participants are requested to check with our Awards Team for category they wish to nominate for.
The main purpose of this event is to honour the outstanding restaurants and chefs, who have excelled every way in the trade and culinary excellence of Curry Cuisine.
The assessment process is rigorous and tailored to suit each category. Establishments are visited once our anonymous judges draw up a short-list. The establishments are not notified in advance.
The judges inspect premises once; although where they feel a second visit is required they will return. The Judges decisions are final.
Winning an award really can make a difference and lead to increase sales and awareness about your business. The Curry Life Awards provide the confidence and the motivation to set sights higher for aspiring chefs and restaurateurs.
The Curry Life Media Group is the main organiser and leader of the Curry Life Awards in London, a branch of the Curry Life Magazine and Curry Life Events Team.
The Awards reward and recognise the individuals who represent the very best of the British curry industry and have shown innovation and inspiration in their work. The primary purpose of this event is to honour the outstanding chefs, takeaways, and restaurants which have excelled in every way in the trade and culinary sector. Curry Life Magazine, a long-established voice of curry houses in Britain and continental Europe, constantly and actively searches for restaurants that fit its criteria.
It reaches around 10,000 Indian, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Nepalese and Pakistani restaurants, with an estimated readership of over 100,000.
For the last 20 years, Curry Life Magazine and Curry Life Events have been successfully organising Trade Fairs, Food Festivals, Business Networking Events, Exhibitions, Competitions and Awards Ceremonies in different countries, including the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Norway, USA, Middle East, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
Since the awards’ inception, Curry Life has been unique in recognising the best curry houses and curry chefs on a massive national scale. No other institution or organisation has ever recognised or promoted so many curry chefs on a national scale as the Curry Life Magazine has done in Britain. The Curry Life Awards and Curry Life Culinary Workshop attract hundreds of professionals from the industry to come together for an annual gathering in London and other cities.
Curry Life Magazine also organises an international food festival called ‘British Curry Festival’. Events are a vital part of Curry Life Magazine’s strategy to promote the presentational, artistic and culinary skills of British curry chefs and highlight their leading role in making this food popular in the UK and beyond. British Curry Festival is a globetrotting event that has promoted the best of British Curry for over a decade in regions as far afield as the Middle East and Asia. This festival has made stars of chefs by showcasing British curry brands globally.
