Popular restaurants and takeaways in Bradford district have been named as finalists in the Yorkshire Curry Awards.

The inaugural awards, run by Oceanic Consulting, offer a guide to the best places for curry in the region.

From the top takeaways, traditional curryhouses, to fine dining experiences, Bradford's talented chefs have earned several places in the prestigious shortlist.

The awards are run by the same company behind celebrations such as Britain's Asian Wedding Awards, the British Muslim Awards, and much more.

The winners will be announced at an elegant ceremony later this year.

A spokesperson for the 1st ever Yorkshire Curry Awards 2024 said: “We’re very proud of how we’ve been able to grow the curry awards and celebrate the vibrant curry scene in the UK.

“We felt Yorkshire was a region worthy of highlighting as it's done so much for the modern British curry. We want to congratulate all our finalists and wish them the best of luck.”
