Mangaluru: Just like many shops are closing down in the malls due to lack of clients, similarly few of the franchise restaurants have also shut down their doors due to lack of customers in City- the two restaurants namely ‘Chettiar’s Restaurant” near Shivbagh-Kadri, serving Chettinad cuisine; and “Vasudev Adiga’s Restaurant” inside Forum Fiza Mall, serving South Indian Vegetarian delicacies, have already hung signs like “Closed for Renovation”- but sources reveal that both the restaurants are out of business and are “Closed for Good”.
Drive around Bengaluru and you are sure to spot several Vasudev Adiga’s. Stop at any one and you’ll notice that the customers are a cross-section of society. Peek at the menu and you’ll find the prices extremely affordable. Order and you’ll be served in a flash. Take a bite and it will be your freshest, most delicious experience ever. That’s what Vasudev Adiga’s is all about. Fresh Food, served Fast. And for everyone. And these outlets in Bengaluru are always packed with customers- but that was not the scene here in Mangaluru. The food outlet inside the Mall had a very low turnout of customers- some people say that the location was not a proper place. Other have different opinion- but whatever the reasons are “Vasudev Adiga’s Restaurant” which was opened just a few months ago inside the Forum Fiza Mall is “Closed for Renovation” or in other words-“Closed for good’.
Chettiars restaurant opened just recently, which was located above KFC/Wines and Spirits-Kadri which served authentic, sumptuous and freshly prepared Chettinad food, where people came to relish delicacies from a region where its residents are master-chefs has also hung signs saying “Closed for Renovation” -but neighbours say the restaurant is gone out of business. I guess Chettinad food was not that Mangaloreans were craving for! What did localites expected to see- menu items like Manchow soup (Chinese cuisine) or Kori rotti (Mangalorean cuisine)-sorry this was an authentic Chettinad (Tamilnadu) cuisine restaurant. Too sad this restaurant had to stop serving due to lack of customers.
