A SHOREHAM restaurant has been highly commended in a national competition.
Indian Cottage Tandoori, in High Street, was awarded a Tiffin Cup certificate and chef’s jacket.
The annual competition is run by the Tiffin Club, a cross-party group of MPs set up in 2005 to promote South Asian cuisine.
East Worthing and Shoreham MP Tim Loughton and the constituency’s branch of Conservative Future, the youth wing of the Conservative party, dined at the restaurant to mark the occasion.
He said he was ‘incredibly pleased’ to be able to present the certificate and chef’s jacket to owner Abdul Manik and his team.
Mr Loughton said: “It was especially pleasing that along with lots of interested and motivated young people, I was able to support the Indian Cottage Tandoori, which is a great example of one of the many fine businesses we have in this constituency.”
The Indian Cottage Tandoori’s success in the Festival of Curry at the House of Commons followed last year’s nomination by Mr Loughton for Jafran, in Broadwater Street West, Worthing, which was also highly commended.
