London curry restaurants won big at this year's British Curry Awards that took place this week. 

Three London-based restaurants nabbed an award including best newcomer for Mathura Restaurant based in South West London. 

Breaking down by central London and the outer suburbs the winner for central was Benares in Mayfair. 

For the suburbs, Bromley-based curry restaurant Shampan Bromley took the winning crown.  

Known as the 'Curry Oscars' the awards honour the best UK curry restaurants which are nominated by diners. 

The ceremony took place in the Capital on Monday, November 29 where nominees from across the nation came together to celebrate the winning curry restaurants. 

In association with Just Eat, this year marks the 17th year of the awards, following the industry-wide struggles from the pandemic. 

Facing supply chain issues, staff shortages, and the knock-on effect of the multiple lockdowns that have had a lasting impact on the businesses, the winners this year got special recognition for their persistence.
