Female chef wins entrepreneur award

Tania Rahman, who runs Chit Chaat Chai in Wandsworth, was named Entrepreneur of the Year at the South London Business Awards, recognising her groundbreaking achievements.


The journey to the top has not been easy for Tania who has had to face traditional barriers on the basis she is a woman. She reflects, “Asian women are not expected to run a business or become a business owner. The idea of starting up a business and risking everything by giving up a stable career and remortgaging my house to open an Indian restaurant is pretty crazy, especially having no female role models to look up to the restaurant world. To have now gone on and won awards is incredible.”
