A new pop-up eatery offering a taste of India has opened in the Eastgate Shopping Centre in Inverness.

Eat Around the Corner is the latest addition to Black Sheep Hotels' Highland portfolio.

Part of the Mars Enterprises and Hospitality group, Black Sheep Hotels owns several hospitality businesses in the Highlands including Tiger on the Wall, a popular Asian restaurant at Strathness House Hotel in Adross Terrace, Inverness.

It also owns Cluanie Inn in Glen Shiel, the five-star Whispering Pine Lodge on the shores of Loch Lochy and Rokeby Manor in Invergarry.

The new pop-up located on the lower level of the Eastgate Shopping Centre comes at a time the chain has been investing in the expansion of its Highland portfolio.

Eat Around the Corner is one of the group's well-known brands in India and on the first day of opening in Inverness, staff were asked if it was connected to the restarant in Mumbai.

It offers authentic-flavored Indian cuisine, plus a range of soups, starters, sandwiches, combo meals and cakes.

It also caters for those with vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets, with meals such as dal makhani and aloo gobi with steamed rice, and cauliflower and potato biryani with raita.

Shopping centre manager Jackie Cuddy said: "It is very exciting to be working Black Sheep Hotels who already have a great reputation in Inverness through their Tiger on the Wall Restaurant.

" I am sure their pop up restaurant which brings great food to Eastgate, Eat Around the Corner, will be just as successful."

It joins an ever-growing list of eateries at the centre including Costa Coffee, Starbucks, Jammy Piece, the Filling Station, Pizza Express, Subway, and Burger King.

Mars Enterprises and Hospitality was established in 1991 by entrepreneurial siblings, Sanjay and Rachna Narang.
