Britain’s outgoing Prime Minister David Cameron spiced up his ‘last supper’ at his 10 Downing Street office/home with Indian food such as Hyderabadi Saffron Chicken, Kashmiri Rogan Josh and Samosas.

Kennington Tandoori in central London tweeted last evening that it had delivered Cameron’s “last supper”.

“The dishes include Hyderabadi Saffron Chicken, Kashmiri Rogan Josh, Nasheeli Gost, KT Mixed Grill (Lamb and Chicken), Chicken Zalfrazi, Saag Alloo, Saag Paneer, Palak Gost, Veg Samosas, Naan bread and Rice among other dishes,” restaurant manager Dr Kowsar Hoque told PTI.

“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,” the restaurant said.

“It’s been a pleasure Prime Minister,” said the restaurant that offers Indian cuisine and is popular among MPs based in the Westminster area near Parliament.

Cameron has often spoken of his love for Indian food, which he says he likes “pretty hot”.

Over the years, the Prime Minister’s office has been at 10 Downing Street but the family home has been next door as it is more spacious.

UK chancellor George Osborne currently occupies No 10’s upstairs living quarters but may soon have to move if new Prime Minister Theresa May decides to shuffle him out of the post.

On Wednesday evening, Cameron will be joined by wife Samantha Sheffield, daughters Nancy Gwen and Florence Rose Endellion, and son Arthur Elwen as the family leave for their new privately rented home in central London as their own home in Notting Hill area of the city is not yet vacant.

They also have a home in Oxford but are unlikely to move there while all three children are at school in London.

The son of a stockbroker, 49-year-old Cameron enjoyed an upper-middle class upbringing and studied philosophy, politics and economics at Oxford University.

He began working for former prime minister John Major from 1988-93 and gradually rose up the ranks of the Conservative party. He briefly quit politics in 1994 to work for media company Carlton Communications as director of corporate affairs.

He concluded his final day as Prime Minister after six years in office on Wednesday on a light note, exchanging banter with fellow MPs and Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn in the House of Commons.
