NHS staff, police officers and other essential frontline workers are being given a spicy treat by the owner of an Indian restaurant.

Hasnath Miah, owner of the Indian Dream takeaway in Didcot, has been offering free meals to key workers since the start of the lockdown.

Mr Miah, who has been running the popular restaurant for nearly eight years, said: “It is time to give something back to the community because we really have to help each other. We are in difficult times now.”

Unsurprisingly, the takeaway owner said he has only had good feedback from the free takeaways, adding: "Everyone likes Indian food."

He has also been offering meals to rough sleepers. He said: “We have been giving meals to homeless people as well because I think they need more help just like the NHS needs more help.”

This offer is just for orders made over the phone and not online.

NHS staff, police and other key workers including teachers can collect their free Indian meal by showing their ID when they pick up their takeaway on Sundays and Tuesdays from 5-9pm.
