The Car Hire Glasgow Airport branch will have to all get together and visit the restaurant at some point to sample the food and decide if it is worthy of the celebrity praise.
One of the more famous Indian restaurants in Glasgow, which is also the oldest, is celebrating fifty years, opened in 1964, will be raising money for Scottish charities. It also has some famous regulars with Billy Connolly whose favourite dish is sag aloo and names it as his favourite and singer Lulu and actor Alan Cumming have also been known to dine at Koh-I-Noor from time to time.
The week of fundraising begins today June 16th, with guests being able to get a meal and live entertainment for a £20 ticket. All the money is being split between five charities Stroke Scotland, Marie Curie, Beatson Cancer Charity, Yorkhill Children’s Charity and Alzheimer Scotland. The target is to raise about £12,000 over the five nights.
Owner Waseem Tahir said “For 50 years my family have served the people of Glasgow with a unique dining experience at the Koh-I-Noor. Our chef Latif has worked here since the doors opened for the first time and has continued to create exclusive dishes for our customers. We want to give something back to the city to mark our anniversary and what better way to do that than helping those Glaswegians in need. The charities we are working with are ones who carry out a great service in Glasgow and beyond.”
