Restaurants around the borough of Richmond are registering for National Curry Week, which takes place from 21-27 November.

The purpose of this annual event is to highlight the nation's favourite cuisine, to show just how much it has become part of community life in Britain and also to raise funds for the malnourished.


Local ventures can register for National Curry Week free of charge at and then choose their own way to support the event and raise money for charity.


Some of the special events include:

  • Customer Restaurant of the Year 2010
  • A new World Poppadom Tower Record attempt
  • The Samosa Speed Challenge.
  • Competitions for the Best Signature Dish (Classic) or Best Signature Dish (Innovative)
  • The new "Chutney Challenge" to determine Britain's best chutney.


Peter Grove, founder of the event said: "Each year the way people choose to support the event amazes me. From schools to universities and local councils to private curry parties - the list is endless."


This year marks the 13th running of National Curry Week in Britain and the 200th anniversary of Dean Mahomed opening the first Indian restaurant in Britain in London in London's West End.


If you're looking to celebrate this event in style, why not take advantage of this fantastic offer from bestofrichmond favourite, Moidul's Rawalpindi.
