Success on a plate for restaurant.

A TEESSIDE Indian restaurant has come third in an annual national competition run by MPs.

Yarm's Raj Bari was one of 12 eateries chosen to take part in the final of the Tiffin Cup from 80 nominations.

Stockton South Conservative MP James Wharton put forward the restaurant, based on the high street. The restaurants each sent a delegation to Parliament to cook a dish for the judges, who then chose the winner and runners-up.

Judges included TV chef Ainsley Harriott and Nina Wadia from television's Goodness Gracious Me. Salim Ahmed Siddique, Raj Bari's owner and executive chef, said: "It is a great honour for Raj Bari to secure such a strong result."

Mr Wharton said: "This is well deserved recognition for the great food they offer and shows just what we can do in Stockton and Yarm."
