Lincolnite readers’ top curry restaurants and takeaways in Lincoln

Is your favourite on the list?

Around 350 Lincolnite readers have ranked their top curry houses and mobile kitchens in Lincoln and the surrounding villages.

The fun vote, which people took part in across 24 hours on The Lincolnite’s Facebook page, resulted in two extremely popular frontrunners.

The winner had a huge majority of the votes and the second place business was also miles in front of the others.

Votes were counted at just after 10am on Tuesday, July 9. Comments counted as a vote, as well as ‘likes’ and ‘loves’. Duplicate comments, ‘likes’ and ‘loves’ were not counted.

Here are the results.
