Al Abraaj Restaurant and Mashawi Al Abraaj will reward their customers with a VAT-free dine-in, takeaway, and delivery experience by discounting the five per cent Value Added Tax from every bill in January and February at all their locations around Bahrain.
The decision follows the government’s announcement of the implementation of the 5pc VAT Law as part of the 2016 Unified VAT Agreement by the GCC states, which took effect from January 1.
Al Abraaj Restaurant has expressed its enthusiasm in announcing this community initiative that promises to ease the planning for this transitional period as the kingdom welcomes VAT.
Bahrain is the third country within the GCC to implement the new VAT Law, following the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
Al Abraaj Restaurant, a well-established and well-rooted company within the Bahraini community, has decided to sustain the costs on behalf of its customers as a way to lower expenses for customers who have remained loyal over the years.
“We have decided to implement this rewarding experience for two months as a way to comfort and ease our regulars into this era of change,” said Al Abraaj Restaurants Group managing director Hamad Rashid Isa. “As a company deep-rooted in Bahraini culture, we sincerely care about our customers, and sought to extend our gratitude to them through this simple initiative.”
Al Abraaj Restaurants Group was established in 1987 in Sehla, and has been present in the Bahraini restaurant industry for 30 years. Al Abraaj Restaurant embodies Bahraini heritage and provides dishes that reflect authentic Bahraini taste, whilst harmonising the flavours of many different cuisines from across the world.
A local brand with a rich heritage, Al Abraaj will continue to emphasise its ethos throughout this transitional period by greeting customers with even wider arms.
With its rising popularity, Al Abraaj has expanded to a number of areas around Bahrain and has become a household name in many communities, and has since opened a number of restaurants and cafes such as Al Bindaira, LUMEE, Nu Asia, YaSalaam! Otto, San Carlo and TCBY.
