The restaurant won Best Indian Restaurant in the East Midlands at the hungryhouse English Curry Awards 2011.
Owner Arfan Razak, better known as Raz, said: “It’s wonderful to see the hard work from everyone at the Curry Lounge rewarded like this. This is a very competitive market, but I am really pleased that our passion for authentic Indian cuisine has been recognised.”
This is the first year that the English Curry Awards have been held. The public nominated venues, and then judges for each category visited those shortlisted to sample the food anonymously, with each restaurant judged against a specific set of criteria.
Over 700 guests from all over the UK came to celebrate the winners and finalists at the event, held at The Sheridan Suite in Manchester.
