Aberdeen & Highlands Curry Awards - About Us

Aberdeen & Highlands Curry Awards recognises the best restaurants and takeaways in the North East of Scotland.

The event has allowed the people of the North East of Scotland to celebrate the success of the curry industry, and on the back of the event, has raised a significant amount of money for charities at home and abroad.

History of Aberdeen's Curry Industry

The first curry house opened in Aberdeen in the early 1970s, similar to when the boom in the Oil & Gas industry began.  Like the energy sector, Aberdeen’s curry industry has grown from strength to strength and now there are over 100 restaurants & takeaways serving Indian, Thai, Bangladeshi, Pakistani & Nepalese curry in Aberdeen City & Shire!
