This is due to difficulties in attracting staff and the retirement of the owner, Ahmed Chowdhury. We wish him and all the staff well and we will remember the many good times and the great food. PetaHaynes says: July 7, 2012 at 18:52 Rajpoot in Bath was named the best South Asian restaurant in the South West in the Tiffin Cup Grand Final, the competition to find the best South Asian restaurant in the country. The Final of this annual competition took place at Bellamy’s restaurant in the Houses of Parliament with a competitive cook off by the 12 finalists from across the country. Rajpoot prepared their signature dish – Achari Golda Chingri which received very high marks from the judging panel. The winners were announced by the Speaker of the House of Commons, the Rt Hon John Bercow MP, who also presented the finalists with their Tiffin Cup chef’s hats and jackets. The competition, now in its seventh year, is organised by the Tiffin Club of MPs who invited their colleagues to nominate the best restaurants from their constituencies. This year the competition received a record 89 nominations. The judging panel was made up of a number of special guests such as celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott and restaurant owner Sanjay Anand MBE, who marked each contestant’s specialties. All proceeds from the event went to the charity World Vision. Rajpoot was nominated by Don Foster, MP for Bath, who said: “This is such a prestigious award and I am sure everyone in Bath will be delighted for Ahmed and the team. Rajpoot is an institution in the city and it’s always great to see our restaurants receive national recognition. Long may it continue.” Kate Wickham says: July 6, 2011 at 14:54 although we had booked, our party was squeezed into too small a space for comfort. The staff were very busy as opposed to friendly. The food was too die for, as usual, so the rest could be forgiven, more happily if it were not so expensive. Still, absolutely delicious.
