WEST Fifers are being invited to Eat Out To Help Out again with an appetising offer from one Dunfermline restaurant.

Dhoom Indian “streatery” and cocktail bar has decided to implement its own version of the popular scheme which was initially introduced to help the hospitality industry after lockdown.

The Dunfermline restaurant is offering a 50 per cent discount on its evening taster menu starting tonight (Thursday) and running on the remaining Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays in January.

A winner in the 2021 Scottish Curry Awards, Dhoom continues to showcase Dhaba style food as offered at authentic roadside eateries across India.

Owner Dhaneswhar Prasad: “We thought it would be a good idea to bring back our own version of Eat Out To Help Out for January as a way of thanking loyal customers once again who stuck with us over the festive season, and who most definitely contributed to our continuing success in 2021 when we were fortunate enough to pick up more industry awards for our food.

“This is traditionally a quiet time for the trade, and money can be tight for customers.

"We thought that by doing a discounted scheme we would enable diners to still enjoy the little treat of the delicious evening taster menu at Dhoom for midweek dining. Our Indian spice and colourful surroundings will brighten up the Winter days."

Throughout the pandemic, Dhoom has donated hundreds of free meals to local community groups and members of the public.

“We were happy to do our bit to help out in earlier in the pandemic, and very much enjoyed donating the meals,” added Prasad. “Things are still very difficult for the hospitality industry as the pandemic lingers on, but we are very lucky to have built up a strong customer base in the town, and also attract many customers from out with Dunfermline.

"We have to look forward to brighter days in the Spring and Summer.”
