SRI LANKAN street food restaurant The Coconut Tree is extending its Eat Out To Help Out terms until the end of January.

The Old Christchurch Road restaurant will offer half price food and non-alcoholic drinks from Monday to Wednesday.

The street food pioneers said that they were originally inspired by the positive feedback they received for extending the Eat Out to Help Out offer into September and now they want to use the opportunity to put Sri Lankan cuisine firmly on the map.

Brand Director Anna Garrod said: "In the UK, Sri Lankan food is not as widely available or understood as say, Indian or Chinese cuisine, and we want to help change that. We want to be the ones to make it mainstream.

"Eat Out To Help Out gave people the confidence to try new things, and we met so many new customers as a result. We want to build on that momentum by extending the offer, and giving people an incentive to give our take on Sri Lankan street food a try this winter."
