A husband and wife have described the reaction from the community to their new Lebanese takeaway as "amazing".

Daniel Morris and his wife, Alissar Hassanieh-Morris, launched their home-cooked business, Alissar’s Kitchen, in January after having the idea of starting a small business together last year.

The Lebanese takeaway is based in Standlake near Witney, and is ran entirely by the duo.

All of the food is freshly cooked and homemade from their home kitchen.

Mr Morris described it as "not a traditional takeaway service".

Orders have to be placed by Tuesday at midnight each week with the delivery service running every Friday and Saturday. 

He said: “It’s like having a chef do your cooking for you and then it is hand delivered. It’s a whole experience.

"The Google and Facebook reviews have just been fantastic."

The menu changes weekly and caters for vegans and vegetarians, and all of the supplies are sourced directly from Lebanon or within the Oxford and Witney area.

The launch event in January welcomed 75 people at Oxford Downs Cricket Club with tasting dishes of authentic Lebanese food.

The pair are aiming to educate the community about traditional Lebanese food through their business. 

Mrs Hassanieh-Morris said: "The food all goes well together - it's a family meal, everyone can dip in and mix and match.

"I cook from the heart, and I'm happy people are enjoying it."
