A Norwich curry house has been shortlisted for best restaurant in the British Curry Awards. 

The UK’s favourite curry restaurants, as nominated for by the British public, will once again be honoured at the British Curry Awards as it returns for its 17th year. 

Among them will be Norwich’s Spice Valley, located in Magdalen Street, which has been shorted listed for the Best Restaurant East Midlands Award. 

The finest curry restaurateurs from across the UK are invited to the awards ceremony, in association with Just Eat, in London at Battersea Evolution on Monday November 29.  

The ‘Curry Oscars’, coined by former Prime Minister David Cameron, will once again welcome personalities from the worlds of politics, sport, showbiz and entertainment alongside celebrity chefs and curry restaurant owners and their staff from across the country. 

Following the challenges faced by the industry over the past 18 months, this year’s ceremony will acknowledge the industry’s spirit and resilience through difficult times. 

British Curry Awards founder, Enam Ali MBE, said: “It gives me great joy that, after the challenges of the last 18 months, my industry friends in the UK curry fraternity and public figures will unite once again in person at the home of the British Curry Awards to celebrate the nation’s favourite curry houses while also recognising the issues we, as an industry and as a nation, have faced during the pandemic.
