Frank Khalid, Director of Chak 89 said, “We are very proud to have been nominated by Siobhan McDonagh, who often dines at Chak 89 and has blessed us with her company on several occasions. To be judged by MP’s from across the UK is a very exciting opportunity for us, and the fact it is a national award makes it even more challenging. We are looking forward to seeing what’s to come for us this year – this is the start of bigger and better things!”
