Owner and head chef Mariketty Grana, who is known for her signature lamb gyros,  is excited about this new venture and so are all the fans of this restaurant often considered Goa’s hottest!

Food served  with sautéed veggies in an oval plate will take you back to the amazing shacks and restaurants in Goa. Also Read - Will Delhi Open Borders From June 8? Kejriwal Likely to Decide Today
