A year of generosity and incredible food at Boness Spice

It has been a year of amazing food,  incredible memories and unbelievable generosity for Indian restaurant  Bo’ness Spice

Since opening the restaurant on the 1st of June 2021, owner Mohammad Abbas, has ensured the community is at the forth front of his business. 

This doesn’t stop at their intimate and outstanding customer service and mouthwatering food. Mohammad is determined to make a difference to peoples lives with his charitable involvement. 

Over the last year Mohammad and his team at Bo’ness Spice have worked on three massive campaigns to support those in need. The What The Fork partner has blown our minds with his loving and generous heart, and we want to say thank you on behalf of all those he has helped and continues to help.

Festive free meals for people in domiciliary care

Over Christmas 2021, Bo’ness Spice offered free curries to the residents of the Dalriada Home Care facility to spread some festive cheer at a time that is not always easy for many, especially those that require help to live in their own homes.

Owner, Mohammad, said “I have always regarded working closely with the local community as an important part of being a businessman and I wanted to do something to cheer these people up a bit while at the same time contribute to the local community.”

The generosity of Mohammad was even more special to Dalradia staff because prior to Bo’ness Spice taking over the premises on South Street, they occupied the space for their office. 

This generous gesture by Mohammad has touched many and was also recognised by Martyn Day, the SNP MP for Linlithgow and Falkirk.

Complimentary meals for local ambulance crews

Back in October 2021 Mohammad decided to recognise the amazing work of the local ambulance crews. After 18 months of the Coronavirus pandemic, Mohammad felt it was time to say thank you on behalf of the local community. 

Mohammad said: “Ambulance drivers and paramedics don’t have much time to rest and eat during their busy shifts. Our tasty and healthy takeaways gave them a nutritious meal on the go”. So, Bo’ness Spice generously went on to provide free takeaway meals to ambulance crew for three days.

Curry for Kyiv

Mohammad has continued his generosity and philanthropy by raising funds for Ukrainian refugees effected by the recent war in Ukraine. On the 7th of April 2022, Mohammad welcomed diners into his restaurant for his Curry for Kyiv event and donated 50% of his profit from that night including that made through takeaway and delivery services to the Consulate of Ukraine. 

Mohammad said “The images coming out of Ukraine are truly heart-breaking. It is impossible to comprehend the nightmare which these poor people have been enduring since the invasion by Russia started. As a devoted family man, to see so many families suffering really struck a chord with me.'”

Back to their food

With all this amazing community work it’s hard to believe at the heart of it all is an incredible Bangladeshi and Indian restaurant situated in the small town of Bo’ness. Each dish represents distinctive cooking styles and dining rituals of ancient Indian and Bangladeshi nobility. This alluring cuisine has its distinct character in terms of aroma and flavours that will leave our guests craving for more. The food is truly mouthwatering and full of flavour, not just spice. 

Food bloggers, The Foodie Explorers, said “A hidden gem is a well-used term in the foodie scene but if you are in the Falkirk, Linlithgow, and dare we say even Edinburgh area,  then think about a visit to Bo’ness Spice. The owner, Mohammad, was part of the award-winning Itihaas team in Dalkeith, just on the outskirts of Edinburgh. He has now opened the BYOB Bo’ness Spice which serves Indian-Bangladeshi cuisine both as a small restaurant and takeaway with delivery to the greater Bo’ness area (which includes Linlithgow).”

If this isn’t enough, in May 2022 Bo’ness Spice were also awarded a recommendation badge by Restaurant Guru based on customer reviews!

Brand new sister restaurant

On the 8th June 2022 owner of Bo’ness Spice, Mohammad, opened a brand new sister restaurant on Albert Place in Leith, Edinburgh.  Cilantro has only been open for a week but it is already making its stamp on the area, serving delicious authentic Indian food.

Food Blogger Debbie at @dineoutwithdebbie said “I cannot recommend them highly enough and if you are looking for genuinely true authentic Indian cuisine then you really need to pay them a visit.”
