The spice is right for curry houses

TWO curry houses in Carlisle have won top prizes in The Spice Times Restaurant Awards.

Multi-award winning curry house The Viceroy, on Rigg Street, has been voted the best in the north west.

And the Dhaka Tandoori on London Road, Carleton – which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year – was voted Best Local Restaurant in north-west England in the same awards.

The Viceroy award comes just weeks after it scooped a fifth British Curry Award and is the first accolade won by the business since founder Sukur Ali handed control to son Alamgir earlier this year.

The latest honour was presented at a gala dinner in Romford, Essex, hosted by ITV Daybreak presenter Tasmin Lucia Khan and Syed Ahmed, a former contestant on BBC’s The Apprentice show.

The Bangladeshi High Commissioner Dr Mohammad Sayeedur Rahman Khan was guest of honour.

Alamagir Ali collected the award on behalf of the Viceroy.

He said: ‘This is a great honour to win such a nice award. I’d like to thank my family and friends for all their support – especially my dad and a big thank-you to all the customers who voted for us.”

Representatives from the Dhaka were also at the ceremony to collect their award.
