Support your favourite restaurant! The search is on to find the Welsh Curry House of the Year 2013.

Chefs across Wales are preparing to tantalise your taste buds, seduce your senses and pamper your palate as they compete to become Welsh Curry House of the Year 2013.

The search is now on to see who will win the coveted award, now in its seventh year, with more than 280 Indian restaurants in Wales eligible to compete. Voting opens on Friday 4 January 2013.

“It feels like only yesterday that we started on our journey of discovery to find the best curry houses of Wales, but this is our seventh year! I always get excited when we launch the competition, we received 13,000 votes last year and in 2013 I think we will see yet another increase as the people of Wales confirm their passion for Indian food,” said Berwyn Rowlands from The Festivals Company, the founders of the competition.

“The competition is also a fantastic opportunity for talented chefs to demonstrate how they can take the best we have in Wales and combine them with the best in Indian cuisine,” added Berwyn Rowlands.

Between 4 – 31 January 2013 diners will be able to cast their votes to decide the top restaurants from each of the three regions by visiting www.welshcurryhouse.co.uk. The 30 short-listed restaurants will be announced on Friday 15 February 2013.

Independent regional judges will then visit each of the 30 short-listed restaurants. The top three restaurants in Wales, one from each region, will be announced on Wednesday 3 April 2013.

The national judges will spend a full day visiting all three restaurants competing in the final. During the visit each restaurant will be invited to impress the judges with one of their signature dishes, available from the public menu.

The national winner will be announced during a special event on Monday 22 April 2013.
