Indian restaurant offers free loo roll with orders

Ingenuity is vital for small businesses at this time of need, and few can top this!

Secret Spices in Margate, Kent is offering one free loo roll with every order over £25. This exciting announcement will be fantastic news for many, who are struggling to find any toilet roll in the shops. Perhaps with a curry every fews days or so you might be able to get through?

However, it has been suggested that ordering a curry might be counter-intuitive to toilet roll rationing... for obvious reasons.

The restaurant owner, Raj Ali, came up with the idea after seeing shelves completely emptied of toilet paper. He knew the limited availability offer would turn around dwindling orders and provide a bit of comic relief to customers.

However, it has backfired somewhat, as the restaurant has been accused of the new cardinal sin: stockpiling. Undeniably, they're holding onto more than their fair share, and it's easy to view this funny and rather ingenuitive idea as a form of extortion. How many people are ordering a curry just so they can get their hands on the precious loo paper?

  • I believe I went to this restaurant years ago, when filming in Margate. Back in those days you didn't get free bog-roll. You just had curry, and you were grateful.
