Even after 37 years of service, we regularly love to look on the fond memories we have created at Rajnagar. One of the best moments for our team was when the Rajnagar was a destination spot for The Good Food Show (NEC Birmingham) visitors and crew; but unlike usual, we faced some of the most renowned food critics and celebrity chefs of the nation, and as expected the nerves of our team were piling up to ensure they all put on their best show...

Good memories last eternally, and at Rajnagar, we felt great joy to be hosts to the stars of the game. Upon the end of the Good Food Show at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham, Jamie Oliver, Anthony Worrall Thompson, Ainsley Harriott and Brian Turner enter with style, shocking both the kitchen team, service team and the diners enjoying their meals!
We asked our front of house team member, Manwar on his initial thoughts when he was host to the maestros of the sector - "I didn't expect it at first, because they are the guys you'd usually see on the papers or the Television, but after having a chat with them it became clear that the chefs were in it to 'try out the rave about Rajnagar' themselves..." said Manwar.
A loyal diner and Rajnagar fan, Mick recently shared his thoughts on Facebook (which gave us this blog idea), sharing his moment from Rajnagar when the top chefs walked in: "I was a regular at Rajnagar for many years. A memorable night was after the Good Food Show at the NEC, when Jamie Oliver, Anthony Worrall Thompson, Ainsley Harriott and others arrived..."
Pictured are some photos for the books, rewinding us back to the nineties. Rajnagar indeed was a hot topic for the city's raving diners, and has been host to a range of celebrities and personalities. We're really proud to have served a huge population of curry connosieurs over the years and we're glad these memories still live on!
Visit the Rajnagar to try out our Poultry or Lamb Signature Specials, to get an authentic yet creative experience of Bangladeshi cooking.
