The Scottish Curry Awards 2011 at the Thistle Hotel, Glasgow.

Hector’s DVD presentation is not required after much effort at short notice. Mr Cowan  is awarded the honour. Trampy and The Tramp and Hector’s names are not even read out.

There was audible booing, but not from the table where Hector, Trampy and The Tramp were sitting.

A massive renovation, nay expansion, is underway…

September 14, 2012

The Village is due to open the new build this weekend, sometime.

Hector has not been for almost ten months…

November 10, 2012

I feel a München Curry coming on, could it be a return to the Indien Mango?

December 2012

The Akash in Helensburgh will re-open on January 20th, 2013, if other rumours of a December 23 opening prove untrue.

This is unlikely to be under the auspices of the Ali Family who have run it for more than thirty years.  Every Curry  incarnation in these premises,  of what was the Sangam  as far back as 1981, has come to a sticky end.

Meanwhile, along the road, the former Teak and Ash would make a splendid location for a Curry House.

March 25,  2013

Curry-Heute passed the Million Clicks in the small hours of this morning –  two weeks short of the three years since the inception.
