Mike to Pick Best Local Curry House


For the fifth year running, Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, is holding a competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in his constituency. The winner will be put forward as Hove and Portslades entrant in the 2014 Tiffin Cup.

Once again, Mike is calling on his constituents to nominate their favourite local curry house so that Mike and his team of curry lovers can pick a winner to put forward for the competition. Not only will the winning restaurant receive local recognition of its excellence, it will also have the opportunity to compete in the national state of the competition in the House of Commons with the countrys top curry-creators for the coveted Tiffin Cup itself. Last year, Hove Tandoori on Church Road made it through to this stage and was highly commended by competition judges.

The Tiffin Cup is awarded every year by the Tiffin Club, which was formed in 2006 by a group of curry-loving Members of Parliament, including Michael Fabricant and Keith Vaz. The aim of the competition is not only to applaud the quality of South Asian food in Britain, but also to raise money for charity.

Nominations have to be in by 24th March. Please email details of your nomination to mike.weatherley.mp@parliament.uk.

Commenting Mike said, This is the fifth year that I have been involved and I was extremely impressed with the standard of the entrants last year and the years before. Nominations can come from both residents and the restaurants themselves, so please get in touch. Hove and Portslade have some great restaurants and I hope that in 2014 we can bring the Tiffin Cup home.
