Whetstone restaurant in House of Commons curry contest

Theresa Villiers, MP for Chipping Barnet, has nominated the Bayleaf Restaurant on Whetstone High Road for the Tiffin Cup. This competition is run by MPs to find the country’s best Indian restaurant. This is the second year that Theresa has nominated the Bayleaf which is owned by local resident, Toffozul Miah. She recently dropped into the Bayleaf to wish them well with the competition.

Theresa said “Toff Miah and his team at the Bayleaf are a great asset to my constituency. Toff’s Bayleaf take-away is a long established and much valued part of our local community. The excellent Bayleaf restaurant which he opened two years ago has been going from strength to strength and is also very popular.”

“It is a real pleasure to nominate the Bayleaf once again for this prestigious competition. They did very well in 2014 and were highly commended. This year, they have once again reached the regional finals and I dropped in to wish them luck in the forthcoming contest. The restaurant has an extremely talented head chef, Chef Taj, and I am sure he and all the staff at the Bayleaf will perform brilliantly.”

A mystery diner will visit the Bayleaf within the next few weeks to judge whether they should go forward to the national final in October.
