It is one of the popular asian restaurants in Jaipur. (Well, the pretty city happens to be my hometown and yes it has fancy places to eat too). I remember going there multiple times.

This is what these tiny little awesome gestures do to strike a chord. As a business house, this is all it takes to ‘delight’ a customer.
