Following a succession of successful restaurants Nazir then purchased the now famous Mumtaz Restaurant in Regent's Park, London, close to Lord's Cricket Ground and Madam Tussauds. Word quickly spread of the culinary delights on offer at Mumtaz under the new owners and soon Nazir was serving celebrities and royalty from around the world, including:
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Dolly Parton
  • Ian Bothan
  • Imran Khan
  • Take That
  • U2
  • Members of the British Government
Throughout his time in London Nazir regularly visited his family in Bristol and completely fell in love with the city. In 2008 Nazir opened the Kohi Noor of Bristol Indian Restaurant. The Kohi Noor has continually received outstanding reviews from both Bristol locals and the Bristol media. In 2012 Kohi Noor was the winner of the Best Indian category in the Bristol Good Food Awards. Nazir Ahmed Collecting Best Indian Restaurant Award
