Was It Worth Going ?
Definitely it was !!
* Besides food, there was a large open area for the visitors to sit comfortably and have their meals.
* Due to ‘Couponing System’ it was easier for the stalls to manage crowd as there was no hustle n bustle for the ‘Change’.
* Good music always complements food, so while you were enjoying spoonfuls of ‘Biryani’ it was that soothing melody that was arranged there to make it a more fascinating experience.
