The Shozna restaurant in Rochester has won a place in the regional final after being chosen to represent Rochester and Strood by Mark Reckless MP in the prestigious Lyca Tiffin Cup 2011 competition.
The national competition is held each year to find the best South Asian restaurant in the country.
This year 60 restaurants were nominated. Shozna, having won a place in the regional final will battle with other restaurants from the same region to become one of the national finalists in the Lyca Tiffin Cup 2011 Grand Final. The competition is in support of World Vision.
Within the next few weeks a mystery diner will visit the restaurant and judge whether the restaurant deserves to represent their region.
Mark Reckless MP, said:
“I am delighted that, following the public vote on my website, my nomination for Shozna has been accepted. I hope that Shozna will be chosen to represent our region in the Grand Final of such a prestigious award. I am particularly impressed with the amount of work Shozna does with local schools and children to promote healthy eating.
I am sure everyone in Rochester and Strood will be supporting our restaurant.”
“I’m thrilled and excited to have been nominated for the regional final. It’s good to be recognised for all the hard work we do.
I would like to thank everyone who voted for us, and Mark for putting forward the nomination.”
The Mayor of Medway, Cllr Ted Baker said:
“I’m very pleased with how they operate. The staff are always attentive and the ambience of the restaurant is very good. I wish them the very best of luck in the competition.”
Keith Vaz MP, Chair of the Tiffin Club said:
“We are delighted with the nomination of Shozna. It will really put Rochester and Strood on the culinary map.”
