I have nominated the Himalaya Tandoori Restaurant in Edinburgh, to take part in the prestigious Tiffin Cup competition to find the best South Asian Restaurant in the country.
Following the success of the Tiffin Cup 2015, MPs have, for the 11th year running, been asked to nominate a restaurant in their constituency as the best South Asian restaurant in the UK in this mouth watering competition. Last year 121 restaurants were nominated from around the country.
The Tiffin Cup is awarded every year by the Tiffin Club of MPs, formed in 2006 by former MP John Barrett, Michael Fabricant MP and Keith Vaz MP. The aim is not only to applaud the quality of South Asian food in Britain but also to raise much needed money for charity. This year the competition is in aid of the charities ‘World Vision’ and ‘Water Aid’.
The Grand Final of the Tiffin Cup 2016 is to be held in the House of Commons on Tuesday 12th July 2016.
I am delighted that the nomination for Himalaya Tandoori Restaurant has been accepted and will take part in this year’s Tiffin Cup. This is such a prestigious competition and I look forward to welcoming Himalaya Tandoori Restaurant to the House of Commons, should they win their regional heat.
