Huppert’s Tiffin Cup restaurant wins place in regional final
Cambridge’s Sitar Tandoori restaurant is hoping its Indian dishes will be to the taste of the judges in a prestigious national competition after being nominated by the city’s MP Julian Huppert.
The restaurant in Cherry Hinton High Street has won a place in the regional finals of the Tiffin Cup, a competition run by a cross-party group of MPs called the Tiffin Club to promote the finest South Asian food.
It is the third time Julian has nominated restaurants from the city for the competition. Last year Saffron Brasserie was named as runners up in the regional finals and Cocum also narrowly missed a place in the final in 2011.
All proceeds from the competition will be donated to World vision which raises money to transform the lives of the poorest people in the developing world.
Julian said: “I am delighted that the Sitar Tandoori has been entered for the regional final.
“This competition is an excellent opportunity to put Cambridge’s South Asian restaurants on the map and win recognition for our city at the same time.
“I wish the Sitar Tandoori every success in the regional finals and look forward to welcoming them to the House of Commons should they win their regional heat.”
Within the next couple of months a mystery diner will eat at the Sitar Tandoori and judge the restaurant on its food, ambience, location, service and décor.
