An Indian restaurant has been crowned the best in the capital at an awards celebrating the country's finest curries.

Ruhit's in Sidmouth Road, Kensal Rise, was named Best Restaurant in North London at this year's Euro Asia Curry Awards.

The annual event recognises the top curry houses in the UK and the hard-working and talented people behind them.   

Almost 500 businesses and individuals from across the UK were nominated for the awards this year, which also include categories such as Best Takeaway and Best Chef.    

Around 50 regional and national winners were chosen and received their awards at a ceremony at Mayfair Venue, in Romford, Essex, on November 15.    

The Euro Asia Awards, now in their seventh year, were founded by Bangladeshi chef Shorif Kahn.   

He said: "The UK is home to some fantastic curry restaurants and takeaways and the awards are a way to give something back to the brilliant people behind them.  

"2023 has been a great year for the country’s curry industry, with business generally back to pre-pandemic levels after a few very tough years."
