Local favourite, Radhuni impresses judges in Parliamentary Tiffin Cup Competition

Kings Heath’s very own Radhuni was presented with an award from Selly Oak MP, Steve McCabe for being highly commended by the judges of Parliament’s annual Tiffin Cup competition.

Radhuni is well loved by locals and the owner, Emran Abul has recently changed the menu to reflect authentic Bangladeshi cuisine or as he calls it ‘home cooked classics’. The favourites such as chicken tikka will stay on the menu but he said as the owner and chef of the new dishes, the new dishes are also a hit with locals. Emran is well known by the local community and has told Steve that he plans on holding a free taster night for his new menu so keep an eye out!

The Tiffin Cup is a competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in Britain; started in 2006, now in its 10th year it is renowned for attracting high quality judges. The 2016 judges included Richard Tapner-Evans, Director of Catering at the House of Commons and the chair judge was Ainsley Harriot. The competition is sponsored by Lycamobile and this year is in aid of ‘World Vision’ Development charity that works with communities to overcome poverty. For the 10 past years, the competition has sponsored a child in Kenya called Otieno to attend school.

Steve McCabe MP said:

 “I was very pleased to present Radhuni with an award that recognises their well-loved cuisine. My constituency has many brilliant South Asian restaurants but this year, Radhuni came out on top.  I’m glad the judges highly commended Radhuni and recognised the quality of South Asian food they produce, I’ll be taking a trip down there very soon and look forward to tasting the new menu.”
