PARTIAL to a pasanda? Or keen on a korma? Monmouth MP David Davies is urging foodies with a fondness for curries to put forward their favourite restaurant for a national competition.


He is seeking nominations for the local round of the prestigious Tiffin Cup contest to find the best South Asian restaurant in the UK.

The annual event, now in its tenth year, is organised by a cross-party group of curry-loving Members of Parliament known as the Tiffin Club.

Each MP is asked to nominate one South Asian restaurant from their constituency to go through to a regional final. Ten entrants will then be shortlisted and invited to a special cook-in at Bellamy’s Restaurant in Westminster where the overall winner will be crowned.  

The competition aims to raise the profile of the quality and diversity of South Asian food in Britain while raising money for the charities World Vision and WaterAid.

Last year’s winner was Flavours by Kumar in Ramsgate.

Mr Davies said:

“There are some truly fantastic curry houses in the Monmouth constituency, many of which I have visited myself, and this is a chance for local residents to champion their favourite. The choice of our nominee is in your hands!

“It would be wonderful if we could bring the Tiffin Cup home.”

Nominations should be emailed to david.davies.mp@parliament.uk by Thursday April 14 2016.
