"The UK's love affair with curry has come a very long way since we started the Tiffin Club in 2005. I am delighted the launch will be at the Red Fort Restaurant in Central London, one of the first to tickle the British taste buds. This will be a first of many events to find MPs' Best South Asian restaurant in the country and it's all for an excellent cause"
