AN INDIAN restaurant in Glasgow is giving diners a free guide to love to add a little extra spice to their Valentine's Day dinner.

The Dhabba In Candleriggs will be offering the first thirty couples who book a Valentine’s Day meal a free book about the Indian God of Desire Kamadeva.

Kamadeva is the Hindu Cupid, angel or deity of love and is often represented as a young and handsome winged man who wields a bow and arrows.

His bow is made of sugarcane with a string of honeybees, and his arrows are decorated with five kinds of fragrant flowers - the Ashoka tree flowers, white and blue lotus flowers, Mallika tree and Mango tree flowers.

Owner Navdeep Basi said: “India is responsible for a lot of romance and as well as nourishing our customers with food we like to quench their thirst for knowledge.

"Kamadeva will make you look at romance eclectically.”

It comes after the restaurant's last Valentine's venture, which saw guests offered a full aphrodisiac menu.

In India, as well as celebrating Valentine's Day, young people also enjoy the days leading up to it and , according to some Indian calendars there is also a break up day on February 21.

Navdeep joked: “At the Dhabba we will be ready to feed you whether you are happy or sad during the month of February.

"Our chef can make you comfort food as well as an array of healthy dishes too.”
