Haveli Restaurant in Chilwell have been voted runners up in Parliament’s prestigious Tiffin Cup. They were nominated by Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry in the competition for the best South East Asian restaurant in the UK and received runner up prizes from the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow.
Judges of the competition led by TV chef Ainsley Harriott voted Haveli the best in the East Midlands and third place in the UK competition.
In a “cook off” final at the House of Commons Haveli chefs competed with twelve other regional finalists in the competition organised by Leicester MP, Keith Vaz.
“I nominated Haveli because I have eaten there many times since they opened less than a year ago and the food is delicious. I am delighted they have done so well in this tough competition” said Anna.
“Haveli competed with some of the best Indian and South Eastern restaurants in the UK and beat most of them. For first timers this is a fantastic achievement.”
