Don't come for the food just come for the experience. U get good food elsewhere but u can't get charity like this everywhere. Nice and thoughtful I say. Heard a lot about it, visited it and realised what charity means.

They want to leave a message to the youth and other people that it feels like heaven when you are serving someone with selflessness. They have a menu of 5-6 items daily, you can order whatever you want and as much as you want... More
