Charity Fundraising Owner Syed Rahman has made a committment to national and local charities and good causes to help them to raise £500,000 by 2020 by holding fundraising nights at Cuisine Of India and our sister restaurant Chef and Spice.
Ticket prices are £15 on these evenings and £9 (60%) goes to the charity with only £6 retained by the restaurant. This £6 does not even cover costs but this isn't important to Syed because he is determined to help the community as much as he can and help make a change.
Organisers may also hold raffles and auctions to raise more money.
By the end of 2014 the two restaurants have helped to raise over £200,000. Click here to see the charities involved over the eight years of fundraising at Cuisine of India.
See the Chef and Spice website to see the many charities supported there.

leics Mercury photo7/12 Cuisine in Schools Initiative.
Syed entertained 60 pupils and teachers from the local Meadow Community Primary School. The children were shown around the kitchen and watched the Chef preparing and cooking food.
The visit was the first of many planned by Syed who hopes to draw attention to the skills shortage in restaurants and to encourage young people to consider careers in catering.
The children are learning about different ways of life in different cultures and the visit told them a little bit about Asian food. They were told about spices and other ingredients by Syed and Chef (right) and sampled the onion bhajis they had seen being cooked.

The Leicester Mercury featured the visit in the 8th December edition. Read the full article here»
