Restaurant situated in the outskirts of Pune has introduced a unique offer to invite customers. While most of the restaurants are still finding ways and means to achieve a break-even point after suffering heavy losses due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, Shivraj Hotel has introduced a ‘Win a Bullet bike’ contest for those who manage to finish off a massive Bullet Thali within 60 minutes.
WHAT IS THE CONTEST ALL ABOUT?
If you wish to win a Royal Enfield Bullet, all you need to do is finish a non-veg thali within 60 minutes. The winner will be presented with the aforementioned bike worth Rs 1.65 lakh.
In an interview with India Today Television, Atul Waikar, owner of Shivraj Hotel located in the Wadgaon Maval area, said that he thought of introducing the contest in order to invite customers to his eatery.
HOW DID THE OWNER PLAN THE CONTEST?
To begin with, Atul Waikar placed five brand new Royal Enfield Bullets in the verandah of his restaurant. Banners as well as the menu cards of the eatery illustrated instructions of the Bullet Thali contest.
WHAT DOES THE BULLET THALI CONSIST OF?
The Bullet Thali is a non-veg platter that consists of around 12 types of dishes made with 4kgs of mutton and fried fish. 55 members get to work to prepare the thali that comprises dishes such as Fried Surmai, Pomfret Fried Fish, Chicken Tandoori, Dry Mutton, Grey Mutton, Chicken Masala and Kolumbi (Prawn) Biryani.
HOW WAS THE RESPONSE?
Atul Waikar told India Today Television that the response towards the contest has been great as people have been visiting his restaurant to try the thali and also participate in the contest. Social distancing norms are being followed as well, Waikar assured. Shivraj Hotel sells around 65 thalis daily.
Shivraj Hotel serves six types of giant thalis – Special Ravan Thali, Bullet Thali, Malvani Fish Thali, Pahelwan Mutton Thali, Bakasur Chicken Thali and Sarkar Mutton Thali.
WHAT IS THE PRICE OF EACH THALI?
Each thali is priced at Rs 2500.
Shivraj Hotel, inaugurated eight years ago, often introduces unique offers for customers. Atul Waikar, previously, had arranged a contest that required four people to finish the 8kg Ravan Thali within 60 minutes. The winner was awarded with a cash prize of Rs 5000 and also, was asked to refrain from paying for the thali.
HAS ANY PARTICIPANT MANAGED TO WIN THE CONTEST SO FAR?
Atul Waikar said that Somnath Pawar, a resident of the Solapur district of Maharashtra, managed to finish the Bullet Thali in less than one hour. He was presented with a Bullet.
