Swastika Dass, who studied commerce and economics, has always aspired to start her own business.

“I didn’t have a restaurant business in my mind just because I have done commerce and economics but I did hope that I would open up a business but I never thought it would be a food business.”

Dass says the twenty people employed by the restaurant come from different backgrounds.

The three sisters intend to expand their business in the coming months.
