Guwahati was lacking its kind, and as such we decided to start one. We operate from 9 pm to 3 am,” Amit Said. “The need of the hour in the city is such night joints. People tend to work till the wee hours. We follow normal restaurant menu – Indian, Chinese, continental and others,” Amit added. “Night restaurants are slowly becoming a necessity. Waking up late is part of the schedule nowadays. Night food service helps those who have no time to make food,” Rahul, who works in a studio, said. “We tend to skip usual hostel meal sometimes. Restaurants offering night food service are an option for us,” Sneha, an inmate of Gyanjyoti Girls Hostel, said.
