A Forest Gate eatery is in the running for the top prize at the inaugural London Curry Awards.

Aromas Tandoori Restaurant, in Forest Lane, is among ten finalists for Restaurant of the Year (east London).

Two dozen awards will trade hands at the black tie event on April 30.

The glamorous gathering follows the success of the decade-old Scottish Curry Awards and eight-year-old English Curry Awards.

“We are extremely excited to launch the first ever London Curry Awards at a time where the capital’s food industry is booming and the curry sector, in particular, is playing a massive part in creating this buzz,” said Irfan Younis, CEO of event organiser Oceanic Consulting.

“We can’t wait to find out more about the individuals and organisations involved and we wish them all the best of luck.”

The ceremony will include a drinks reception, entertainment and, unsurprisingly, a four-course meal.
