Toronto Curry Awards to Highlight Canadian Leadership in Curry

A night of glittering entertainment and mouth-watering food is coming to Toronto in 2018 to celebrate the best curry houses across the City of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.

Food establishments are invited to battle it out in a bid to be crowned the winner of one of the following categories: Best Pub Restaurant, Best Takeaway, Best Vegetarian Restaurant, Best New Restaurant, Best Fine Dining Restaurant and Restaurant of the Year.

Romail Gulzar, Founder of the Toronto Curry Awards and Pukaar News UK, said: “We started our search for the very best curry in the city of Leicester, UK and cannot wait to kick-start our international hunt in Toronto. This vibrant and diverse city is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, making it an ideal place to hold the Awards.”

Corporations based in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area who are looking at creating more brand awareness and promoting their products and services to both the South Asian community and other communities, are invited to participate in the event and take advantage of some great sponsorship opportunities.

Mr Gulzar added: “Toronto has some leading and innovative curry houses which are worth embracing and promoting. We will be campaigning right across the City of Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area, using a variety of different platforms to spread the word about our curry hunt, including exposure via radio and television channels, and through social media.”

The Toronto Curry Awards is also looking to support leading local charities. Charities looking to form partnerships with the Toronto Curry Awards, can email the Awards’ Director of Marketing & Public Affairs, Brett McDermott, at

Romail Gulzar will be travelling to Toronto from October 20-27. Should anyone like to interview or meet him during this time, please get in touch via Mr. McDermott.

Nominations for the Toronto Curry Awards will open soon, with a date for the event being announced shortly.
