And after 250 diners listened to him talk about his kitchen exploits and cook his signature dish, a millet pudding, £1,500 was raised for Ward 14 at the hospital which looks after elderly patients including those with dementia.

Paul Sharma, one of the restaurant owners, said: “The event was a real success. Everyone loved chatting with Santosh and it was great to raise this money which will help on the ward.”
