A popular Ayr takeaway has opened up to dine-in customers for the first time. 

Priya Authentic Indian Kitchen, on the Sandgate, is now welcoming diners to sit in and enjoy their meal with their own drinks. 

The Indian had previously been used as a takeaway only, but expanded its offering to hungry diners earlier this month. 

Its owners have thanked the public for their support in the new venture, and are looking forward to welcoming more locals through the doors. 

A spokesperson said: "I would like to thank all my previous customers who have come to dine in and to the new customers too. 

"A big thank you from team Priya for wishing us the best. I look forward to seeing more regular faces and new ones in the coming weeks."
