Dhoom Indian “streatery” and cocktail bar, the first of its type in Fife, is now open in New Row, Dunfermline. The exciting venue, occupying the unit which was formerly the Eastern Buffet, was opened last week by Provost Jim Leishman, at a celebratory  official opening event, with a number of invited VIP guests.

The restaurant also 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.

The new 100 seat restaurant is open now

Adopting the hastag #letsmachaodhoom which means “let’s hold a celebration”, Dhoom, offers a 100 cover restaurant serving authentic tapas style street food from all regions of India.

“It has its own cocktail bar – the first using Indian herbs in the UK – which serves a wide range of innovative and well priced cocktails, with a late licence in place at the weekend. Featuring herbs and spices such as turmeric, basil, ginger, coriander, and star anise, and given a dramatic presentation through dry ice, the cocktails are served up with gummie bear garnishes in another novel twist.

Owner Dhaneswhar Prasad has spared no expense in creating a bright and luxurious interior for Dhoom with swing seats and other talking point features, sure to delight diners in Dunfermline.

Customers can also take out or have food delivered at Dhoom, with the business introducing the first Indian Railway canteen taster thali. Presented in a recyclable and reusable box, it contains a choice of starters, mains, dips, breads and desserts.

Commenting on the opening of Dhoom, Dhaneswhar Prasad said: “We are very exciting 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.”

“Dhoom represents a completely new eating and drinking experience in the town, which we are inviting everyone to come along and try. If you use social media we encourage you are to use our hashtag #letsmachaodhoom which picks up on the spirit of celebration.

“It’s what this place is all about. We have a fantastic, very central location, which could not be better known. Street food of all types is a massive concept at the moment, and Indian tapas of the quality and authenticity we are presenting at Dhoom creates a very sociable eating experience, enhanced by my innovative spicy cocktails.”

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