"The restaurant is a firm favourite with politicians across all parties."
David Cameron’s tenure as Prime Minister has recently come to an end.
For his last meal at No. 10 Downing Street, the PM decided to go for Indian food.
Westminster’s favourite curry restaurant, Kennington Tandoori, took to social media and tweeted on July 12, 2016 that they were going to deliver David Cameron’s ‘last supper’.
Kennington Tandoori offers a very modern Indian cuisine.
The takeaway also claims that they are a very popular choice for the MPs that are based in Westminster near the Houses of Parliament.

Dr Kowsar Hoque, manager of Kennington Tandoori, said: “The restaurant is a firm favourite with politicians across all parties.
“The residents of No. 10 Downing Street have enjoyed meals from the Kennington Tandoori since the restaurant opened in 1985 and the KT would hope that they continue to do so.”
According to International Business Times, Cameron’s last meal included the following items:
- Hyderabadi Saffron Chicken
- Kashmiri Rogan Josh
- Nasheeli Gost, KT Mixed Grill (Lamb and Chicken)
- Chicken Zalfrazi
- Saag Aloo
- Saag Paneer
- Palak Gost
- Vegetarian Samosas
- Naan bread and rice
Cameron has spoken before about his love of curries. Before the 2013 trip to Mumbai, he spoke about his love for curries amongst other things.
He said: “I like a pretty hot curry. And while I’m very proud that we’ve got some curries here in Britain that we’re exporting back to India, I’m also hoping to sample some of India’s finest during my trip.”
He has attended the British Curry Awards in the past as a guest and has a history of patronising many restaurants throughout his time in office.
Kennington Tandoori’s wide popularity with political figures and MPs was also shown in 2015, when it became the first ever curry house to be mentioned in the Prime Minister’s Questions.
When John Bercow, the speaker, reprimanded his colleagues by saying: “When you’re eating curry in the Kennington Tandoori, you don’t yell across the table.”
The restaurant has high hopes that this is not the end of their special relationship with Downing street.
Given that Theresa May, our new PM, is also a curry fan!
