Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, is thrilled to announce that Azaro has been selected to go through to the regional finals of the parliamentary curry competition, the Tiffin Cup.
The Tiffin Cup is a prestigious food competition in the heart of Westminster politics. It seeks to celebrate the best South Asian restaurant in the country whilst also raising money for charity. This year’s beneficiary will be World Vision.
Looking to build upon the constituency’s near-win last year with Hove Tandoori’s valiant attempt and ‘Highly Commended’ status, Azaro was nominated by Mike to compete with the country’s top curry-creators in the House of Commons for the coveted Tiffin Cup. Located on Church Road in Hove, Azaro will be judged within the next couple of months by a mystery diner who will eat at the restaurant and award points in the following categories: Food, Ambience, Service and Décor.
As the Member of Parliament for this vibrant area of the town, Mike has pushed for a Hove victory each year. Azaro in 2014 marks the fifth entry to the competition that has been sponsored by Mike. As well as Hove Tandoori’s successes in 2013, Touch of India on Boundary Road also received ‘Highly Commended’ status in 2012.
Commenting Mike said, “It’s is great news that Azaro has been selected to compete in the regional final. They certainly deserve to get through to the final in Westminster, so hopefully I will see them in Parliament soon. Either way, this competition highlights the excellent culinary choices that residents have in Hove and Portslade and celebrates a restaurant I am particularly fond of.”
