He also is planning to introduce Odia pitha and mitha like manda pitha, kakera pitha, chakuli pitha, chena poda and rasogolla in the regular menu of the restaurant for Pravasi Odias and Delhi people.

Raj said the 52-seater restaurant will have a pleasing decor to give you a feel of Odisha in Delhi.  “All our chefs are from Odisha, so the taste of Odisha remains in every bite,” he said.
