Winning team : Lasan ; Peppers; Rajdoot ; Coconut Lagoon

2004 put the spotlight on the twelve city teams involved plus Liverpool and Nottingham and the ethnic restaurants in those cities. This year we welcome Leeds as a new competitor and look forward to their participation. The aim is to profile the achievements of the cities and their communities to the media and the public in a way that is both interesting, enjoyable and useful. The cities are going for two titles : Curry Capital of Britain, covering the Indian sector, won in 2004 by Bradford, and EthniCity, covering the entire ethnic sector, won 2004 by Birmingham.

As well as being great fun and of vital income to charity to help feed the starving of the world, the winning of the title Curry Capital is of great prestige and commercial importance to the winning city attracting tourism and commerce.

All ethnic restaurants in the competing cities will be invited to participate with the aim of increasing the knowledge of both cuisine and culture.

It's victory for Birmingham as Curry Capital 2005 and Glasgow for EthniCity 2005
