Turriff’s Moonlight Tandoori restaurant has won the Scottish section of the prestigious Tiffin Cup competition at last week’s Grand Final.
The Grand Final of the Lyca Tiffin Cup 2011 was held in the House of Commons on Wednesday 6 July 2011. The competition is held each year to find the best South Asian restaurant in the UK.
The Tiffin Cup winner is chosen from a list of restaurants that have been nominated by their local MPs. This year 62 restaurants were nominated by local MPs, and the Moonlight Tandoori was nominated by Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP.
Commenting on the success of the Moonlight Tandoori, Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford said:

& Moonlight Tandoori proprietor Mr Salim Chowdhury
“The Tiffin Cup is a prestigious award, which also does very good work in raising funds for the World Vision Charity.
“Mr Chowdhury and his team are to be congratulated on their success and also for putting Turriff on the culinary map. I am sure that we will see an increase in people coming to Turriff to sample the wares of Scotland’s top Tiffin Cup restaurant.”
