The competition is heating up as the English Curry awards draw closer and Halifax’s very own Ziggy’s is in the running for a top prize.

The popular Indian restaurant on Carlton Street has been named a Yorkshire finalist in the ‘Team/Service of the Year’ category.

Saghir Hussein, owner of Ziggy’s, said: “It’s a great feeling to be nominated and I’m really pleased.”

With 14 awards up for grabs, accolades include Restaurant of the Year and Takeaway of the Year, as well as the highly sought after Curry King or Queen 2014.

Yasmin Mahmood, Operations Director for event organisers Oceanic Consulting, said: “Each year awards have grown from strength to strength, as we see an increase of nominations for those hidden gems as well as the better known curry houses.

“All the finalists are truly deserving and we wish everyone the best of luck.”

West Yorkshire is well represented in the awards, with restaurants in Bradford, Leeds and Huddersfield also nominated for awards.

The winners will be announced at a glittering black tie ceremony held at the AJ Bell Stadium in Salford on October 13.
