Banff & Buchan MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford is to present a ‘Highly-Commended’ certificate and embroidered chef’s tunic to award-winning restaurateurs Baldev and Gopa Soni of the B-Raj Tandoori Restauant, Broad Street, Fraserburgh at 4.30pm on Friday 4 February (tomorrow). The restaurant achieved ‘Highly-Commended’ status in the most recent Newby Teas Tiffin Cup competition.
The award follows the restaurant’s previous success in the prestigious Tiffin Cup Competition, when the B-Raj Tandoori was the only Scottish restaurant to be placed in 2006.
Dr Whiteford commented:
“Mr and Mrs Soni have once again done exceptionally well to achieve such high recognition in the face of UK-wide competition. There are more South Asian restaurants in London alone than there are in Mumbai and Delhi put together, so that gives you an idea of the challenge faced by the B-Raj Tandoori.
“The judges could not have failed but to be impressed by the consistently high standard of Asian cuisine in Mr and Mrs Soni’s restaurant.”
