Tony Stratford’s Calcutta Brasserie was honoured at the British Curry Awards on Monday 28th November. 

The Indian restaurant was presented as a ‘Finalist’ from 15 venues in the South East region that were shortlisted. Only five restaurants received this honour at the most prestigious Indian restaurant awards in the UK.

Held at Evolution in Battersea, London and hosted by celebrity chef and presenter James Martin, the glitzy event was attended by celebrities and dignitaries including legendary footballer David Seaman; Mayor of London Boris Johnson; PR Guru Max Clifford, Employment Minister Chris Grayling and Conservative Party co-Chairman Baroness Warsi.

Prime Minister David Cameron also contributed a broadcast message from Downing Street during which he announced the winner of one of the evening’s major awards.

Proprietor, Mo said: “There is no bigger prize in the Indian Restaurant business than the Curry Awards and to have been chosen out of so many fantastic restaurants is an unbelievable achievement. However, we are aiming to win the category next year no matter how hard it is.”
