The restaurants offering even better deals than Eat Out to Help Out

- Advertisement -

Thousands of people headed out yesterday to get a bargain breakfast, lunch and dinner on the first day of Rishi Sunak‘s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, which offers diners 50 per cent off all food and non-alcoholic drinks, up to the value of £10.

The scheme, which will run throughout August, will see the government subsidising the cost of meals in the hope to ignite the flames of the restaurant industry, which has hugely suffered due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While many have already bagged bargains at the likes of McDonalds, Pizza Express and Nando’s – some restaurants are being even more generous and ditching the £10 limit, while others have extended the scheme throughout September, or to include Thursday and Friday nights.  

Here, FEMAIL looks at some of the best deals being offered across the UK.

RESTAURANTS WITH NO £10 CAP ON 50 PERCENT OFF 

DISHOOM 

Iranian Bombay cafe Dishoom are going beyond the cap set by the Chancellor and are honouring this discount on all food and soft drinks, with no £10 cap.

From today, guests can enjoy a fulsome 50 per cent off at all Dishooms on any Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday in August. 

Characters can pick a breakfast of Akuri or Kejriwal and as many cups of (bottomless) Chai as one can drink for a little over £5. 

Or midday diners can order a delicious lunch of House Black Daal, Roomali Roti and a couple of Lamb Chops, which will set guests back less than £10.

The chain shook up Indian dining when it first launched in Covent Garden in 2010. The restaurant now has venues across London, Manchester and Edinburgh and is inspired by the cafes opened in India in the 1960s by Zoroastrian immigrants from Iran.
