Of the things we liked :

  1. Various gourmet options to choose from.
  2. Lively music in the background.
  3. The tranquil decor.
  4. Reasonably priced entry fee of Rs. 100 (online bookings : early bird discount) and Rs. 200 (on the spot booking).
  5. Reasonably priced food items with a good amount of helping.

Of the things that could be better :

  1. The seating arrangement could have been better, with proper sheds to help protect the visitors from sunlight, as it isn’t quite easy to eat while standing. The seats were few in ratio of the amount of people coming in !
  2.  Restaurants and Cafes coming from PAN India would have made the experience better rather than a few of them coming from Delhi and most of them being from Chandigarh itself.

The Grub Fest was an absolute go-to. For those who attended it would agree with me and for the others , I’m sure we are soon going to get grubbed in the coming few months with the type of enthralling response the fest got from people this very season. 😉

I hope you liked the post, stay tuned for more !!!
