‘Order Of British Empire’ Awarded To Indian-Origin Restaurateur For Selfless Service

An Indian-origin restaurateur and philanthropist based in London, Amritpal Singh Maan, was added to the ‘United Kingdom’s New Year’s Honours List.’ The Queen conferred Maan with the coveted Order of the British Empire award for supplying over 200,000 meals to the poor amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Extremely well-known in the British Sikh community and known as ‘Amrit Maan,’ he is the managing director of a restaurant in London’s Covent Garden called ‘Punjab,’ which was founded by his great-grandfather. It opened in 1946 and was the first Punjabi restaurant in the country. Amrit Maan devoted his entire life to a noble cause. His contributions during the pandemic are well-known. During major community events in London, he provided £ 1 million worth of meals to the poor. Maan works as a solicitor in addition to owning the popular restaurant. He assisted several victims pro gratis and provided legal assistance to small and growing enterprises.

Amrit Maan, a patriotic Sikh, has advocated for his community on numerous occasions and projects. He founded a social company to encourage British Punjabi artists and is on the boards of The Sharan Project, Khalsa Academies Trust, and other organisations.
It takes a lot of courage to be recognised by your country for your selfless work. Amritpal Singh Maan is ecstatic to have received such a prestigious award.

Maan goes on to say that receiving the honour has further increased his resolve to make the world a better place. He aspires to raise the profile of the Sikh community and serve as a role model for those around him.

“I feel truly humbled to have received this honour for services to charity and community. Seva, selfless service for the community has been the ethos of our family business since it was founded. I accept this honour not just for me but on behalf of the generations that came before who made huge sacrifices, took chances, and shared their spirit with me,” says Amritpal Singh Maan.
