The Jalori Indian Cuisine restaurant from Woburn Sands has been highly commended in the prestigious Tiffin Cup competition.
Although the restaurant was put through to the regional finals it just missed out in a slot at the grand final.
The Tiffin Cup is organised by a group in the House of Commons and every year MPs are encouraged to nominate a deserving local South Asian Restaurant.
Iain Stewart, MP for Milton Keynes South, entered Jalori for this year’s competition.
The Jalori Indian Cuisine has been running since 1994 and has previously won many prestigious awards, as well as many celebrity visits, including England Cricket Captain Alistair Cook.
Mr Stewart said: “We have many great Indian restaurants in Milton Keynes, it is a shame I can’t nominate them all! I have eaten at Jalori several times and the food has always been great.
“Although they only just missed out this year, they will be receiving a certificate and a branded chef’s jacket.
“To be highly commended pays testament to the staff’s hard work.”
Mr Abdul Hai, owner of the Jalori, said “We thank Iain very much for nominating us this year. We are extremely happy to have been highly commended and we hope to go that little bit further if we are entered again.”
