FOODIES with a taste for something spicy are in for a treat, with the opening of a new Indian restaurant in Swinton.

Around 90 people packed into the Spice Lounge, on Church Street, for the opening night.

The new venture has created 10 jobs, will be open seven days a week and also offers a takeaway service.

Owner Akbar Ali said: “The venue has undergone a refurbishment and it looks great inside. I was really pleased with how the opening went, we managed to pack the place out.

“People were very complimentary about the food inside the restaurant, and they were also talking about it in the Gate Inn pub across the road!”

He added: “We have experienced chefs who were previously working in Mexborough’s Spice Library”.
