A new Indian “streatery” and cocktail bar, the first of its type in Fife, has opened in Dunfermline.

Named Dhoom, the new venue, occupying the unit which was formerly the Eastern Buffet on the town’s New Row, was opened by Provost Jim Leishman, at a celebratory party which acted as the official opening event.

The restaurant then held a soft launch for a number of days during which time many hundreds of meals have been given away to members of the Dunfermline public.

Offering a 100 cover restaurant serving authentic tapas style street food from all regions of India, Dhoom has its own cocktail bar – the first using Indian herbs in the UK – which serves a wide range of innovative cocktails, and has a late licence in place at the weekend.

Featuring herbs and spices such as turmeric, basil, ginger, coriander, and star anise, and presented using dry ice, the cocktails are served up with novel Gummy Bear garnishes.

The team say owner Dhaneswhar Prasad has invested heavily on the design to create a “bright and luxurious interior” with innovative features such as swing seats set to prove popular with future diners.

Mr Prasad said: “We are very excited to be open now at Dhoom, after weeks of hard work creating the new look, which will certainly create a bit of a buzz in the town centre.

“This eatery and cocktail bar is a completely new concept for me, and for Fife, representing my considerable experience in the industry where I have always striven to give customers what they are looking for – superb authentic Indian food to enjoy together.

“We’re putting Dunfermline on the culinary map – Dhoom is now part of a vibrant eating out scene in the town centre.”
