Ruddington Curry House is Hot Stuff!

Village restaurant owner Mahbu Noor and his staff say they’re delighted at picking up a special national award for their work at The Three Spices on Easthorpe Street – after being nominated for it by their customers.

The Ruddington eatery picked up the title ‘Best Customers’ Choice Restaurant’ in this year’s prestigious National Curry Awards – staged by Curry Life Magazine at a glittering event in London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel. The gong was presented to him by well known broadcasters Angela Rippon and Mike Bushell {top photo}.

Speaking after the ceremony, Mr Noor said: “What a great tribute for us to be recognised in this way – especially as we have been nominated by the people who matter most, our customers! The past couple of years have been extremely challenging for businesses like ours – and it is marvellous to emerge from such difficult times with such a top award.”

He added: “Our success is very much a team effort – and is all about giving our customers the quality of service that they demand and deserve. I’d like to thank everyone who has played a part in achieving this top honour.”

The Curry Life Awards celebrate the unique fusion cuisine of Indian food in the UK and are part of a wider organisation that organises the British Curry Festival around the world. Of the 12 annual Curry Life Awards so far, The Three Spices has also won in 3 previous years.

Editor of Curry Life Media Group, Syed Belal Ahmed, said: “One of the major aims of the awards has always been to highlight best practice going on across the country – so that everyone has the opportunity to learn from the best – and that indeed has always been a driving principle behind Curry Life itself. That so many owners have chosen to use their lockdown time to invest in their businesses, and raise standards, is a real credit to the perseverance and ingenuity of all involved.”

Matt Bushby, the UK Marketing Director for Just Eat, added: “We are thrilled to sponsor the Curry Life Awards, celebrating one of our most treasured and iconic industries; one that has helped so many communities in so many ways over the last 18 months. Our congratulations go to all of those who have won awards. You fully deserve them for standing out in this excitingly crowded and competitive industry.”

Commenting on the importance of the awards, President of the CBI and Chairman of Cobra Beer, Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, said: “Like many business sectors over the past couple of years, the hospitality industry has been through the ringer because of the Covid pandemic. It is great to see it not only emerging from this dark period but also leading the way for other business sectors. Now that the economy is gathering momentum, it is truly heart-warming and instructive to hear of some of the stories of innovation, and pure hard work, emerging from this year’s Curry Life Awards.”

The Curry Life raised just over £2,000 for the British Asian Trust at this year’s Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner.
