Curry fans are being given a chance to vote for their favourite eatery in the North-east.
The ballot is now open to choose the best restaurant or takeaway for the Aberdeen Best Curry Awards.
Voting closes for the Evening Express Reader’s Choice on Sunday, just before midnight.
Sumon Hoque of the awards said: “The awards is now only weeks away and the feedback I have had from the judges has been that this year is too close to call.
“I think every eatery that has been judged has a chance to win.
“The Evening Express Readers’ Choice is a fantastic opportunity for all the restaurants to get on board and make sure they let their customers know to vote for them online.
“It doesn’t matter if you have not been previously nominated – this award is open to everyone.
“We are expecting the awards to be a sensational event, with a delicious four-course dinner, comedy from Hardeep Singh Kholi and entertainment from Navin Kundra, a renowned Bollywood singer.
“I urge the public to buy tickets and join us and celebrate the best curry houses in the North-east of Scotland.”
Those who cast their ballot will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win a pair of VIP tickets to the awards ceremony worth more than £150.
All you have to do is say what is your favourite curry-serving restaurant or takeaway in the Evening Express circulation area.
Evening Express features editor Scott Begbie said: “We know Evening Express readers have great taste … especially when it comes to curry. So we are delighted to offer them the opportunity to vote for their favourite place, right across the North-east.
“Even better is the chance for one lucky reader to win tickets to the Aberdeen’s Best Curry Awards’ glittering ceremony.
“I hope as many readers as possible take the time to cast their ballot.
“I’m sure they will help the Evening Express Readers’ Award go to a very worthy winner.”
The competition is expected to be fierce among the Indian, Thai, Bangladeshi, Pakistani, Nepalese and Chinese eateries taking part.
Money raised from the event will go towards Foodbox Aberdeen and Foodbox Bangladesh as well as the British Asian Trust.
