Foodies know that while dining out, food that satiates their taste buds is as important as the ambiance, especially when restaurant themes are unique and interesting. But we can guarantee that you would never have thought of restaurant themes like the kind you will find in this list below. From sitting on a toilet seat or in a prison room while eating, this list has it all. Let's take you through it.
Top 10 Unusually-Themed Restaurants To Visit In India
1. Tihar Food Court, Delhi
This unique restaurant lies within the complex of the Tihar Jail on Jail Road in Delhi. What makes this restaurant famous is that it is run by the inmates. Everything from preparing meals, waiting at the tables, and even managing accounts, is done by the inmates of the Jail.
2. New Lucky Restaurant, Ahmedabad
Contradictory to its name, New Lucky Restaurant gives its customers an eerie experience of dining with the dead. This restaurant functions in a place that was a graveyard once. Not just that, there are graveyards inside the restaurant too.
3. Mirchi And Mime, Mumbai
Mirchi and Mime in Mumbai employ servers that are specially-abled. While the word 'Mirchi' suggests the degree of spice and flavour of food on offer, Mime refers to the waiters at the restaurant who are hearing and speech impaired. There is a sign marked for every row and column; to place that order, you must mime that symbol to your appointed waiter.
4. Taste Of Darkness Restaurant, Hyderabad
'The Taste of Darkness' in Hyderabad allows you the thrill of savouring unique flavours in complete darkness. Right from the entrance, your whole dining experience won't include even a single ray of light. With the sense of sight impaired in that environment, the heightened experience encourages the customer to appreciate the food using all other four senses.
5. The Bar Stock Exchange, Mumbai
The Bar Stock Exchange is a bar chain in Mumbai that works on the basic principles of the stock market. The prices of drinks and liquor keep adjusting according to their popularity and publicity. The most popular drink will be charged higher, and vice versa.
6. Nature's Toilet Cafe, Ahmedabad
The aim is to spread awareness about good sanitation and good hygiene and is inspired by the Environmental sanitation organization Safai Vidyalaya. If you are tired of the regular Cafes, Nature's Toilet Cafe would give you an altogether unique experience of sitting on the 'reverse mechanism of food'.
7. Kaidi Kitchen, Chennai
While Tihar Food Court is an actual prison, this restaurant has taken more of a real-life approach. Kaidi Kitchen is set up like a jail, complete with staff dressed as convicts and jailers. The idea is to give the customer a taste of what it feels like to be a prisoner, but the experience could be likened to enjoying a meal on a movie set.
8. Seva Cafe, Ahmedabad
With a warm social message, this cafe is based on the concept of giving forward. It is run by volunteers from around the world, who create an atmosphere of service and friendship.
9. Dialogue In The Dark, Bangalore
This restaurant allows you to experience the life of a visually disabled person for a short time. At Dialogue in the Dark, you can choose from either a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian option for your meal and you cannot see what you eat. You have to keep your mobile phone and other gadgets away too.
10. Veli Lake Floating Restaurant, Thiruvananthapuram
