This year’s celebrations had a special significance, the organizers said, considering the challenges faced by the industry in the last 18 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inam Ali MBE, founder of the British Curry Awards, told FEMAIL: ‘What a year we’ve had – full of highs and lows as we come out of the pandemic to try and rebuild our businesses after lockdown Have to try to make. The support from our customers has been incredible but the challenges are still significant.

‘At the British Curry Awards we have always stood up for causes that matter to the industry. We are all now benefiting from the so called Vindaloo Visa which has helped to address the problem of shortage of chefs. We will always fight with your corner. And the government listens to us.

‘This year we have received several reports that restaurants that have received high, four or five star ‘scores at the door’ in the past from local environmental health authorities are only getting marked down to one or two stars. From the reports we are getting, it seems that restaurants are being flagged for frequent, minor, technical violations. Even though these can often be corrected quickly, they require waiting up to six months for re-evaluation. This is unfair and is putting many already struggling businesses on the verge of closure.

“What we are demanding is that the government needs to appeal to the local authorities and speed up the re-certification process, so that those who have been identified can be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks, Not in 4-6 months. Otherwise, we will not be able to play our part in rebuilding our high lanes, as this inflexible process will prove to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.’

In a message of support, Boris Johnson said, ‘I am delighted that one of the biggest events in our gastronomic calendar, the Curry Oscars, is back and it is fantastic to celebrate the talent of our curry restaurants, who have made their mark for decades. Offered aromatic blend.

‘During the past two years of testing time, you have always responded with determination and creativity, dispatching fleets of mopeds to feed our NHS heroes and spice up the lives of millions at home.

‘And now I’m pleased to say that customers are returning en masse and Curry Houses is once again bustling across the length and breadth of these islands, more than 10,000 of them across the United Kingdom.

‘It’s 200 for every city, more London than Mumbai and as the British Curry Awards are now in their 17th year, with a record number of nominations, we’re not just building better. And I want to thank you all – the restaurant, the chefs and the waiters have blessed us with their delicious morsels.’

Andrew Kenny, UK Managing Director, Just Eat, said: “It is a great honor to sponsor the British Curry Awards once again. After an incredibly challenging 18 months, there has never been a better time to recognize the resilient and hard-working individuals in the restaurant and takeaway sector.

Despite facing many hurdles ranging from supply chain constraints to difficulty in recruiting skilled workers, restaurants have risen to the occasion and given customers a taste of normality when they need it most. We want to ensure that takeaway restaurants – especially in the region that contributes so much to British culture – not only survive, but thrive in today’s challenging economic climate.’
