We are part of the community and it is our duty to give something back to our community.

Atul is actively involved in the diverse local communities where his restaurants operate and lends his support whenever he can. He believes that running a business and being socially responsible are inextricably linked, which stems back to the values instilled in him since childhood. These values are about giving back and supporting others. It is this philosophy which Atul carries forward in his business and is highlighted in his motto:“We are part of the community and it is our duty to give something back to our community.”
