We hope to claim this spicy accolade in our home town of Manchester and look forward to an exciting evening mixing our spice with industry big wigs, restaurant owners and fellow curry lovers.
You can receive live and up to the minute coverage from the award night via our Twitter and Facebook pages on the evening of the 25th July. Why not tikka a minute to find out if we have been lucky enough to receive this great honour, what we get to eat (surely it must be a curry?) and instant news of which restaurants have scooped the prestigious awards throughout the night.
We face stiff competition in our award category from Mike Gatting (the former England cricket captain) and the Soldiers Charity (who organise the "Big Curry" which is month-long flagship fundraiser that takes place every April. They raise money for soldiers, former soldiers and their families).
The CurryCouncil hope that we have done enough to persuade the judges that we have a real passion for spice and are 100% CURRY LOVERS.
"Why do you do it?" is a much asked question from our friends, colleagues and many restaurant owners. It’s simply our love and passion for curry which drives currycouncil.com.
Our non-for-profit website began in the 90’s. Our strategy was simple. Ensure we meet every month; eat a curry, enjoy a beer (or two), eat more curry and socialise.
During our travels we have kept a comprehensive web record of where we have eaten. In many ways we’ve become the curry equivalent of a train spotter, with over 100 restaurants visited.
In 2005 our moto “The Whole Truth and Naanthin But The Truth” was born. We set out to review at least one restaurant per month and publish our findings. Our visitors then have the opportunity to post their own comments and state if they agree or disagree with our opinions.
We hope that our independent reviews have helped to raise the game within the Greater Manchester region. Our website enables people to make an informed decision where to eat.
In 2010, we developed our very own curry awards to salute our favourite restaurant of the year.
The six CurryCouncil members like to think of ourselves as “The North West Kings of Curry”.
We work (and eat) tirelessly to keep visitors upto date with local restaurant reviews across Manchester & Cheshire and also industry news from across the whole of England.
We are fanatical, dedicated, true curry lovers and hope that we can celebrate when the English Curry Award winners are announced.
