Three others from Sussex are also nominated for the regional title; Tamasha Lindfield on High Street, Lindfield, Tarana on Selsfield Road in Crawley and Naasta Indian Street Food on London Road, Burgess Hill.
Award-winning Indian restaurant The Chilli Pickle on Jubilee Street, Brighton is also shortlisted for Best Take Away.
The UK’s leading curry restaurateurs will come together to unveil the winners of this year’s awards at a ceremony in London on 28 November.
This year’s awards honor the event’s founder, Enam Ali MBE, who passed away in July at the age of 61.
