THE owners of a popular Sottish restaurant have offered to train and employ any refugee who is looking for a job.

Bosses at Shish Mahal on Park Road in Glasgow's West End made the generous offer on Monday, saying they will train job-seeking refugees and then give them employment at their restaurant – or find roles for them at other establishments. 

A post on the restaurant's Facebook page, which was accompanied by a Ukrainian flag, read: "Hey Shish Snobs...We promise to train and employ any refugee who seeks a job... if we cannot employ, we will guarantee a job within our hospitality network."

The post was praised by members of the public, with one saying: "Well done. A fantastic job opportunity for someone."

Others said: "Well done guys" and "excellent news!"

Shish Mahal has previously been credited with the invention of chicken tikka masala.

It's believed a local ordered a chicken tikka and returned the plate to the waiter, saying it was too dry for him.

After hearing this, chef Ali Ahmed Aslam is reported to have created what we now call chicken tikka masala by adding a tin of tomato soup.
