Awards ban Darlington restaurant

A Darlington Indian restaurant is the focus of an investigation by organisers of the British Curry Awards and local trading standards officers after promotional literature claimed they were the Awards’ North East winners.

The Garden of India restaurant has been banned from entering future British Curry Award events because of the false claim. The restaurant had actually only made the awards' north east regional shortlist.

Anwar Ali, in his restaurant's defence, said that the word 'shortlisted' had been accidentally left off the advertising in question. He told the Northern Echo, “It was an absolute mistake. We’re all human beings. We’ve got a very good reputation and were nominated by our customers, we’ve have been established for the last 30 years and established without their [the British Curry Awards'] name.

Ali blames rival local restaurants for stirring up trouble. “Our prices are a bit more expensive, but, in my opinion, we’re a lot better. They’re completely jealous.”
