British curry awards


Newcastle’s two Dabbawal street food kitchens and Trimdon’s Cinnamon Club were all nominated at the British Curry Awards, the Indian restaurant industry ‘Oscars’ in London.

Family owned and run, Dabbawal’s two branches in Newcastle’s High Bridge and Jesmond took two of the eight shortlisted positions in the hotly contested Casual Dining section of the awards, which was won by London-based Dishoom. “It’s a great honour for both our restaurants to be recognised in the nation’s most important Indian restaurant awards,” said owner Jalf Ali.

Meanwhile, Cinnamon Club was shortlisted in the Newcomer of the Year category, having opened in July 2014, missing out on the prize to Walsall’s Five Rivers A La Carte.

Guests at the ceremony included Theresa May MP, former England goalkeeper David Seaman, Paralympian David Weir, and broadcaster Krishnan Guru-Murthy.
