its about 100 years old as per my information! the waiter informed me and also said that tao is a religion in Japan and the owner belongs to Japan. You may order food and enjoy in the open garden. its something different in the city. just near by the Sonwar area.

If you need a break from the bustle of the streets this cafe is ideal: located in an enclosed flower garden it's a little oasis of calm. Food tasty and very good masala chai.

Good Chinese food. Serene place, cool breeze under the Chinars. You would love the ambience. Not a crowded place so you can enjoy with your family. Paid parking is just opposite the road and would charge you ₹20 for the day.
