Glasgow has been named Curry Capital of Britain for a record fourth time in the past 10 years.

It fought off competition from 11 other UK cities to take the title which was being run during National Curry Week.

Glasgow City Council submitted an entry with four local restaurants. They were judged top in areas such as standards of food, service and cleanliness.

Glasgow was represented in the final by Balbir's, KoolBa, Mister Singh's India and Mother India café.

Lord provost Bob Winter said: "I am delighted the title is coming back to Glasgow where it belongs. It's wonderful news.

"Winning the Curry Capital of Britain title this year is very much down to our four chosen ambassadors. They do our city proud."

Members of the public were asked to vote for their favourite Indian restaurant and of the 66 Glasgow restaurants to receive a nomination, Balbir's, KoolBa, Mister Singh's India and Mother India Café secured the most.

They went on to impress the judges with their innovative dishes, first class service and "incredible fundraising".

Glasgow won the Curry Capital of Britain title in 2002, 2003 and 2006. It was runner up in 2004, 2005 and 2007.

This year Bradford came second with Wolverhampton in third place.
