Customers want their booze back

An Indian restaurant in Tring, The Jubraj, has decided to stop selling alcohol. But the move has apparently not gone down well with customers. Over 240 people have joined a group on social networking website Facebook demanding for booze to be put back on

to the menu. The Get Alcohol Back into the Jubraj group is campaigning for a change of heart. Members of the group have posted messages protesting their dis- satisfaction with the move and some have said they have chosen to go

elsewhere for their Indian meals. Restaurant manager Monnan Miah told a local newspaper that Jubraj has gone teetotal as a business deci- sion, which will be reviewed after three months.

Restaurant owner secures UKBA assistance

Neelofar, who is also Chair of the Pakistan Restaurant Owners Association UK, has spent years championing the cause of small busi- nesses in the London Borough of Lambeth. Over the years, develop- ing links with organisations such as Croydon Business, Croydon Chamber of Commerce and the London Development Agency. Chilli Chutney is also extremely proud of its long rela- tionship with the Lambeth Council and has hosted the Mayor’s Charity Dinners for the past few years, providing finger buffets for departmental events and banqueting for more formal events at the Town Hall and other Lambeth venues.

Neelofar Khan, of Chilli Chutney in Streatham, has launched an immigra- tion advuce programme together with the UK Borders Agency (UKBA) to help the local business community. The programme was launched at a busi- ness briefing that was sponsored and hosted by the restaurant, assisted by the Southside Chamber of Commerce and endorsed by Sadiq Khan, MP.

One-to-one appointments with UKBA officers can now be arranged via the

Southside Chamber of Commerce, and these will take place on a monthly basis. This, Neelofar points out, is a significant development, as UKBA is normally seen as an enforcement agency and not one that can provide assistance. Amongst other things, this programme will encourage busi- nesses to engage with the UKBA’s Local Immigration Teams for initial advice, while applying for a Sponsor License under the Points Based Scheme.

Restaurant could transform troubled Norfolk site

A building in Norwich that has become a hotspot for vandals could be trans- formed into an Indian restaurant. The Norwich Evening News recently reported on plans to change the

Spice Business Magazine

derelict site of the former Viking pub, which was closed in 2007, into a res- taurant called The Royal Bengal.

Restaurant boss Sazu Miah tabled the

30

plans and Broadland District Council is now considering giving him a new premises licence.
