Curry Life Awards timeline announced for 2024

The Curry Life Awards, which celebrate achievements across UK curry houses and takeaways and which showcase chefs and exceptional restaurants, will take place in October 2024.

Now in their 15th year, the Awards will be hosted once again at the London Marriott, Grosvenor Square on Sunday 13 October. The Awards celebrate the elite in the UK’s multi-billion-pound curry industry. Last year’s ceremony featured 44 awards across five categories: Editor’s Choice, Best Restaurant, Best Takeaway, Best Chef and Best Recommended Restaurant.

“This marks the first time in seven years that we are hosting the awards without JustEat,” said Syed Belal Ahmed, editor of Curry Life. “The curry sector plays a vital part in the UK’s economy, and being an Awards sponsor is a fantastic opportunity for brands to support and champion this important industry. There are many sponsorship opportunities available for those who want to be part of this exciting sector, and we can’t wait to welcome other sponsors on board.”

If you manage or work in an Indian restaurant/takeaway and want to get involved with the awards, you can enter by nominating yourself, and customers can also nominate their favourite restaurants. With six months to go, many nominations have already been received from both customers and restaurants. Restaurants, chefs and takeaways can go to the awards website and nominate their businesses for an award:

“There’s already a great buzz building up for the 2024 Awards, and we are looking forward to celebrating many achievements in October,” said Syed Nahas Pasha, editor-in-chief of Curry Life magazine.

Curry Life’s awards team finalises a shortlist based on the information submitted and will visit all shortlisted restaurants/businesses to obtain further details on each nomination. These are then forwarded to the judging panel to make anonymous visits to make the final decision.

Last year’s awards attracted more than 500 guests. Among the attendees were beer magnate Lord Karan Bilimoria, the founder of Cobra Beer and a current House of Lords member, and representatives from different sponsors. Other guests on the red carpet included Paul Scully MP, Minister for London, Tech and the Digital Economy, Steve Double MP, Member of the Parliament for St Austell and Newquay and Government post of Government Whip, Lord Commissioner of HM Treasury and Father of the House Sir Peter Bottomley MP.
