Many restaurants and food joints have been trying their best to attract more and more customers. Some do it by introducing discounts for a limited period or offers like one plus one or combo meals. But to make things more interesting, this restaurant in Pune, Shivraj Hotel, is offering a free Royal Enfield to anyone who can finish a 4 kg platter in 60 minutes.
The thali, which costs Rs. 2,500, is said to have 12 dishes with 4 kg of mutton and fish. It may seem easy to some but the Thali can be a true challenge. The Thali is Non-vegetarian and includes the dishes like Fried Surmai, Pomfret Fried Fish, Chicken Tandoori, Dry Mutton, Mutton Masala, Chicken Masala, and Prawn Biryani. The ‘Win a Bullet bike’ contest requires participants to finish a non-veg thali within 60 minutes.
The restaurant owner has placed five new Royal Enfield Bullet bikes in the verandah. The restaurant decided to come up with this idea to attract more customers and increase its sales amid the ongoing pandemic.
A resident of Solapur district in Maharashtra, Somnath Pawar, is said to have finished the thali in less than 60 minutes and has taken home the Royal Enfield bike.
Atul Waikar, the owner of Shivraj Hotel, told India Today that the Bullet Thali contest has received a good response as several people have visited the eatery to participate in the contest.
Earlier, the restaurant had also arranged a similar contest that required four people to finish the 8kg Ravan Thali within 60 minutes. The winner was awarded a cash prize of Rs 5000.
The thali and the restaurant have not only become popular locally but have also garnered attention on an international level. People have been showing up at the restaurant in the hopes of competing for the bike. Do you think you have what it takes to finish the Thali? Do share with us in the comment section.
