The news of Colin Firths Oscar win last night was especially a triumph for a Thailand restaurant in Winchester, Hampshire, United Kingdom. The restaurant, Bangkok Brasserie, celebrated Firth’s win not only because the actor hails from the town but also because they’ve named a dish after him.

With the actor’s approval, Bangkok Brasserie recently created a dish called Colin Firth’s Thai Mango Chicken. Each time the meal is purchased, a portion of the meal price is donated to the Southampton and Winchester Visitors’ Group, which helps refugees looking for a safe haven.

The dish is one of the restaurant’s house specials and, from this description, looks just as delicious as it is charitable:

Colin Firth’s Thai Mango Chicken (Geang Kari Mamuang) a traditional mild yellow curry with added mango; especially created for actor Colin Firth. This is a sponsored item, & for every portion sold Bangkok Brasserie will donate 85p to Southampton & Winchester Visitors Group, a local charity supporting refugees & asylum seekers.


“He is a very, very generous guy,” said restaurant owner Abdul Kayam. “He is so, so successful but he makes time for local causes in Winchester and he visits local schools and colleges.”

Kayam added, “We are thoroughly pleased for him to win the Oscar. We are big, big fans here and we watch all his films. We should all be extremely proud in Winchester of all he has done.”

We are also big, big fans. (And we must admit, he and eco-dressed Livia Firth looked stunning last night.)
