The owner of an award-winning Asian restaurant in MK has been dubbed the ‘Queen of Curry’ after her efforts over Christmas.

Naseem Khan, who runs Namji in the Xscape and Wolverton, was helped by her staff and customers to put together 150 food parcels containing everything families would need to make a Christmas dinner.

The parcels were delivered to people in need all over MK.

On top of this, the restaurant cooked and delivered Chicken Tikka Masala and Vegetable Curry to hard-working local NHS frontline staff on Christmas Day.

Namji, which recently won a title in Best Restaurants in Buckinghamshire at the Asian Food & Restaurant Awards, provides meals every week for homeless people.

Naseem said: “Namji is currently the only restaurant in the area providing hot meals on a weekly basis to the homeless, those who are struggling financially and basically anyone who is hungry.

"We are so proud of everyone who has contributed to making this possible because we really couldn’t have done it without them. And we are all so grateful that we are in a position to support our community with food.”

Food parcels were delivered

Namji Xscape and Namji Wolverton regularly run food appeal campaigns on social media.

If you would like to get involved and help, you can drop off food at either of the Namji restaurants in Wolverton or the Xscape and Naseem and her team will ensure that it is distributed to those who are in need.
