Parliamentary Tiffin Cup

Kolkata Lounge impresses judges

Stirchley’s very own Kolkata Lounge was presented with an award from Selly Oak MP Steve McCabe after being named as a West Midlands Runner up in Parliamentís annual Tiffin Cup competition.

Steve nominated the family-owned restaurant last year after asking his Facebook followers for their local recommendations. He received lots of worthy suggestions but in the end, Kolkata Lounge came out on top.

The restaurant was opened in 2007 and has firmly established itself as a local favourite. Owner Ameer Hussain told Steve how he and his brother, head chef Shah Hussain, carefully selected their menu to reflect authentic Bangladeshi cuisine. They also took the opportunity to show Steve the recent revamp of the restaurant. Steve gave the brothers a framed certificate and the all-important Tiffin Cup Chef Whites to mark their achievement.

Kolkata Lounge Impresses King Charles

The Tiffin Cup is a parliamentary competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in Britain; it started in 2006 and is now in its 13th year. It is renowned for attracting high-quality judges. This year, the competition was judged by pioneering restaurateur Sanjay Anand MBE. The aim of the competition is not only to applaud the quality of South Asian food in Britain but also to raise much-needed money for charity. This year, the competition is in aid of the charity World Vision.

Mr Hussain said:

It was a great honour to be nominated for this competition by local residents and we were thrilled to be named as runner up for the West Midlands. I have worked in the restaurant industry alongside my brother since I was a teenager and we have always focused on offering quality authentic Bangladeshi cuisine. Being a family-owned business means we really care about the restaurant and the food we serve.

Steve McCabe MP said:

I was delighted to present Kolkata Lounge with an award recognising their well-loved cuisine. My constituency has many brilliant South Asian restaurants, but this year, Kolkata Lounge came out on top. I’m glad the judges highly commended Kolkata Lounge and recognised the quality of South Asian food they produce, Iím looking forward to another visit there very soon.
