News & Views Curry lovers map city favourites


With the costs of spices soaring, new legislation making it more difficult to recruit staff and a double-dip recession taking its toll, these are tough times for the country’s Indian restaurants. However, it’s not all bad news, as the nation most definitely still loves a curry.


In Scotland alone, there are more than 500 Indian restaurants – which is why the broadcaster STV has launched its own Curry Map, so people can share their favourite local curry houses, as well as highlight restaurants they want to visit.


This new feature has launched as part of the build-up to the Curry Capital of Britain contest held in October, with the channel asking for nominations in an attempt to determine the true curry capital of Scotland - Glasgow or Edinburgh?


Restaurant changes ‘no dogs’ policy


A restaurant owner in Slough has vowed to change his ‘no dogs’ policy after an investigation launched by the local council found that he had turned away blind charity chief Andy Shipley on the basis that ‘customers did not want a dog in the restaurant’. Muhammed Saleem was extremely apologetic after the incident and


has agreed to put up ‘assistant dogs allowed’ signs outside to avoid any con- fusion in the future. Mr Shipley’s char- ity – Fieldfare Trust – will also receive a donation from Mr Saleem, who has said he will offer a free meal to the party of six that was turned away. The law requires restaurants to accom- modate for diners with guide dogs.


Mr Saleem commented: “It was just a misunderstanding. I’m deeply con- cerned why it happened and I will be putting stickers in the window to show we accept guide dogs. I will also print a copy of the law so people can see what it says.”
