Picking the Best Local South Asian Restaurant

South Asian restaurant competition

Mike and his panel sampling dishes from local South Asian restaurants.

On Friday 9th July Mike held a competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in his constituency. The winner, Indian Kitchen, has been put forward as Hove and Portslade’s entrant in the 2010 Tiffin Cup.

Mike and his panel of experts, which included local food critic Audrey Simpson, Ben McKellar aka the Gingerman and talkSPORT presenter Mike Mendoza, tasted a selection of five starters and five main courses from Ashoka Tandoori, Indian Kitchen, Hove Tandoori, Ganges Brasserie and Curry Mahal. The evening was compered by local artist Julie-Anne Gilburt.

Competition was fierce and Mike and the panel were generally mixed in their opinions of the various curries. But a winner emerged.

Mike said: “It was a fantastic event that provided a great opportunity to sample some of the best dishes that Hove’s South Asian restaurants have to offer. Indian Kitchen clearly came out on top and I wish them the best of luck in the national competition. I will certainly be dropping by next time I fancy a takeaway!”
