“We wanted to do something that would help us and give something back to society. Everything is done by our own hands.

“I study innovation and skills for social change at Leeds University and I applied the logic to this restaurant. I applied the theory of change to this project.

“We have had lots of views on Google. We are now getting the gist of Foodhub and other online platforms - we are also on JustEat.”

Ovidiu, who is from Sheffield, had opened a Romanian restaurant previously but now wanted to try something different.

Dot . opened on June 19.

He added: “This is a mixture of Balkan and Mediterranean food. We have three kinds of pizza. We also have some vegetarian options too.

“We make our burgers from scratch.

“It is a combination of street food and restaurant food. We are trying to focus on the quality of the base product.”

Dot . is open 11am-11pm Tuesday til Friday, and 5pm-11.30pm Saturday and Sunday. It is closed on Mondays.
