The wait is over and the public have spoken. After thousands of nominations poured in for more than a hundred Indian food establishments, a shortlist of 30 finalists across the six awards categories has been announced.

Some of the City’s & County’s most popular eateries attended a special event hosted by Pukaar News at BBC Leicester where the announcement was made.

We’re thrilled to see such a positive response and now the fun starts; the next stage is made up of a public vote and in the hands of a team of mystery diners who will visit and rate all 30 restaurants while sampling an array of mouth-watering dishes.

So stay tuned and follow us on Twitter to keep updated with the latest Leicester Curry Awards news and views.
