A Fife venue has been named Most Wanted Restaurant in the Scottish Curry Awards held in Glasgow.

It's a double for the Dhoom Indian 'streatery' and cocktail bar, based on New Row in Dunfermline, as it is also the holder of the Most Inspiring Restaurant title in the Scottish Virtual Restaurant Awards held in the Spring.

Established in 2008, the Scottish Curry Awards are customer-led, with diners being asked to nominate their favourite restaurants and chefs.

Dhoom, which is currently showcasing Dhaba-style food as offered at authentic roadside eateries across India, has just employed two new chefs to cope with the festive rush. Harvinder Singh and Shyam Sunder, both from India, have between them more than 32 years' experience in international hospitality businesses.

Dhoom owner Dhaneswhar Prasad said: “We are delighted to have picked up another award – we all had a great time at the awards ceremony and it was brilliant to attend in person. I want to take this opportunity once again to thank all my loyal customers for their continuing support in award schemes such as these. We’re also happy to welcome two new chefs to our team, and are committed to employing the very best professionals we can find.”
