What products do you use in your restaurants?

We do not focus on any particular brand or name while selecting the products for our restaurants. We just go for the best quality products available in the market. Rice powder is our main product and we manufacture it on our own in collaboration with the company.

How do you select on items to prepare the best menu?

Menu is the most essential part of any restaurant. We introduce new menu almost every day. Before deciding any menu, we do a lot of research; borrow ideas from our chefs, and also consider the new food trends.

Tell us about your marketing strategy to reach out to masses.

We believe in making our guests feel relaxed, nourished and satisfied by our food and services. We believe that if we focus on giving our customers the best service, keeping in mind the hygiene factors, ambience and tasty food, then we can make our customers walk in again.
