Five of the nation’s top-rated Indian takeaways roll into Manchester to compete in an epic battle of the spices as fabulous dishes from across South Asia are cooked up for tonight’s takeout menu.
Competing from Scotland are mother and son Paula and Stevie, who run Sabzi in Edinburgh. Married couple Swati and Karthikk gave up their high-flying careers to start their takeaway business, Curry on Naanstop. Representing the north east of England are Shah and Gaurav of My Delhi in Newcastle. Mother and daughter Hasmita and Sivani run The Indians Next Door in London, and finally chefs Waqar and Mio run Bradford favourite, Sweet Centre Restaurant, which even the Queen has tried.
Judging the Indian cuisine and deciding who wins are a host of takeaway-loving families who eat, rate and score the food from the comfort of their dining table or sofa alongside the guest judges, Manchester Village Spartans Rugby Club.
But who will the families rate as their top Indian takeaway tonight?
