A Moray curry house has been crowned as the best in the north at an awards ceremony celebrating Indian cuisine.
Lossie Restuarant, in Lossiemouth, was named Restuarant of the Year for the area at the 12th Scottish Curry Awards event, in Glasgow.
Meanwhile, Akash Tandoori in Elgin won the national prize for Best Dining Experience, while the 8848 eatery on Union Street in Aberdeen was declared the city’s best.
The lifetime achievement award went to the Shri Bheema restaurant, which has bases in Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
The business was born in the Granite City in 2012, with an outlet on Belmont Street, and a second opened in Bridge of Don the following year.
The event was sponsored by Oceanic Consulting and its chief executive, Irfan Younis, praised all of the entrants.
He said: “The Scottish Curry Awards are now established and unique in their own right.
“I’ve always admired the tenacity of the curry industry despite its many challenges, and that admiration has only grown following the 12th ceremony.
“The ceremony is one of the only means by which homage is paid to those individuals behind the country’s tastiest curries and I’d like to congratulate all winners and finalists for their fantastic achievement.”
Judges named Delhi’s Winter in Linlithgow as the overall best restaurant in the country, and the take-away award went to Indian Delight in Carfin, near Motherwell.
