The Bombay Dynasty in Corby has been nominated by the town’s MP Andy Sawford for the Tiffin Cup competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in the country.
The restaurant in George Street, in the town centre, is owned by Corby mayor Mohammed Rahman.
Following the success of the Tiffin Cup 2012, MPs have been asked to nominate a restaurant in their constituency to take part in the contest.
Last year a record 89 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 to recognise the quality of South Asian food in Britain and to raise much-needed money for charity. This year the competition is in aid of the charity World Vision.
Mr Sawford MP said: “I am delighted that the nomination for the Bombay Dynasty has been accepted and that it will take part in this year’s Tiffin Cup. This is such a prestigious competition and I look forward to welcoming Bombay Dynasty to the House of Commons should they win their regional heat.”
Chairman of the Tiffin Club, Mr Vaz, said: “After the overwhelming success of last year’s competition, we are looking forward to another chance to sample some of the best offerings of Indian food in Britain. I wish the Bombay Dynasty the best of luck in the competition.
“I am sure everyone in Corby will be rooting for Bombay Dynasty to become Tiffin Cup 2013 champions.”
The grand final of the competition will be held in the House of Commons on Tuesday, July 2.
