Calling it a ‘labour of love’, Priyanka shared few inside pics on social media. “What started as a simple craving for great Indian food has become this labour of love, and I can’t wait to welcome you all in, and for you to experience timeless India in the heart of NYC!",” she said.

Priyanka also shared glimpses into the desi cuisine that the restaurant offers. The restaurant’s official Instagram handle also shared inside pics of the decor and the food. Recently, Priyanka had shared pics from the inaugural ceremony of the restaurant and a prayer meeting.
