A Kings Norton eatery has reached the grand final of The Tiffin Cup, a competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in the country.
The prestigious award was established in 2006 by Tiffin Club MPs. The aim of the Tiffin Cup was to reward the best South Asian restaurants and to raise money for charity: this year children’s charity World Vision.
Almost 100 restaurants have been nominated by their local MPs. Northfield MP Richard Burden (Lab) nominated Mahfil situated at The Green, Kings Norton after visiting earlier this year.
Mahfil’s owners are proud of their Bengali heritage and their family’s history in catering and passion for food. They serve traditional Bengali cuisine with a modern twist, all freshly prepared.
And Mahfil has been selected as one of just 13 nominees to attend The Grand Final of the Tiffin Cup 2014 in the House of Commons next week.
Mr Burden said: “I am delighted that Mahfil has made it into the final of the Tiffin Cup 2014. This is really prestigious award and I will certainly be there on 8th July to cheer on Mahfil. I am sure everyone in Birmingham Northfield will be rooting for our restaurant to be crowned the 2014 champion.”
Chair of the Tiffin Club, MP Keith Vaz said: “We are delighted that Mahfil has beaten extremely stiff competition in order to become one of the finalists of the Tiffin Cup on 8th July 2014. This is a great tribute not just to the nomination of Mahfil but also to the constituency of Birmingham Northfield as a whole. We wish them the very best luck for the final.”
We wish them the very best of luck!
