Mumtaz Restaurant has been chosen to cook for The Queen at an event at the University of Huddersfield.

Preparations to create a menu fit for a Queen have been feverish in recent weeks with Mumtaz's head chef working around the clock to produce a tailored menu.

Mumtaz director, Rab Nawaz, said: "It's every chef's dream to be asked to cook for The Queen so this is an extremely special day for all of us at Mumtaz.

"Of course we've deliberated over what dishes would most like to taste, but we have a great selection of the highest quality and tasting Kashmiri food to choose from, so it wasn't difficult.' The lunch will form part of a Royal visit to Huddersfield University on the 24th May.

Mumtaz, based on Great Horton Road in Bradford, was chosen from a list of top restaurants and chefs to serve The Queen and the other guests on the strength of its famous and unique Kashmiri ingredients.

Mumtaz was chosen from a list of around 8,000 curry restaurants in the UK.

Rab explains: "We set the same high standards for every one of our customers who comes to our restaurant and we treat them all as royalty, so we see this honour as a special extension of that service.

"This menu for The Queen's lunch shows off a diverse and delicate mix of flavours. - the best of the best."
