With the concept “Farm To Fork”, it’s the first of its kind highway restaurant, guaranteeing food that is fresh, safe & nutritious. He-Man, built on the values of authenticity and responsible leadership, is the brainchild of Indian film actor, producer and Lok Sabha Member, Mr. Dharmendra, who believes that “You feel good when you eat well”.
