Restaurant industry coverage for Offie

Restaurant Industry News reports on warnings that post-Brexit immigration plans will turn UK curry houses into “Indian themed English cafés”

The restaurant industry press have reported on warnings that the government’s post-Brexit immigration plans will turn Britain’s curry houses into little more than “Indian themed English cafés”.

The dire prediction has been made by industry leaders including Asad Khan, the CEO of restaurant support service Offie and a client of consumer PR agency Palamedes.

He said that stricter laws will mean that Indian and Bangladeshi chefs are replaced by untrained British cooks with no experience of authentic south Asian cuisine.

This will lead to the western homogenisation of Indian restaurants, which could lead to them serving bland, anglicised dishes like spicy beans on toast within a decade.

Mr Khan added that the impact of the new immigration rules would also result in technically challenging dishes like paturi, chicken momo and Kashmiri harissa disappearing from the high street altogether.
