About Us! #SPICE2022!

After a hugely successful first year, the SPICE Awards in association with Goldstar Chefs are returning for 2022! Over 800 restaurants from across Scotland were engaged in its inaugural year and over 22,000 votes were counted to find our finalists, we were absolutely delighted with the response, so much so that the SPICE Awards are returning, bigger and better than before!

A cuisine enjoyed by thousands of Scottish families and establishments loved by local communities, we are looking to the people of Scotland to vote for their favourite restaurants they think deserve recognition. From Gretna Green to John O’Groats and over the sea to Skye, we welcome nominations from across the nation.

The venues with the most votes will make up a shortlist of Scotland’s most loved restaurants. Our independent panel of industry experts will tour the country sampling traditional favourites and chef specials alike.

Our judges will we required to fill in a site visit report awarding scores for various criteria across taste, presentation, service and environment. All the SPICE scorecards will be sent to the venue in order that we may help to continue raise standards and improve service across this celebrated industry.

All our finalists are invited to a sparkling Gala Final; a night of good food and celebration of the Scottish curry industry. The finalists with the most points in each category will be crowned the winner!

There are no registration fees and no distribution ties and required to enter – your first public vote is your official entry into the awards. We even give you free material to get those votes rolling!
