The Lasan Group is famous in these parts. When it’s not serving up the best Argentinian food in Brum at Fiesta Del Asado, it’s providing everyone with arguably the best Indian food in the city. The award-winning Lasan restaurant in the Jewellery Quarter won Gordon Ramsay’s ‘The F Word’ programme back in 2010. This is Indian fine dining at the top of its game.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
