British Curry Awards organiser and founder Enam Ali said: "For any restaurant to get to this stage is really quite something. We've always had a very good public response to our nomination process, but this year it has been absolutely staggering”.
Indian Restaurant, The Mahaan, situated in East Street, in the centre of Farnham, are delighted to have reached this stage in such a prestigious competition. Shomraz Khan commented “the curry industry is a very tough market, being short listed for this award means a lot to us and we are very proud that our customers have voted for us”.

When asked what winning the British Curry Awards would mean to him he excitedly replied “It's fantastic to be nominated for a second consecutive year, I would be dancing!”
