Describing the pathetic condition of the restaurant’s kitchen, Ishani wrote, “I do not understand how on a busy Thursday with 30 customers walking in every hour can a restaurant so reputed be so careless. Their kitchen was no apple to the eye. It stinks, half of it had no roof. I was disgusted by what I had seen and I will not settle for this. I have all rights to safety, even food safety.”

“A vegetarian restaurant whose owners are vegetarians, constantly told me that they would compensate me so that I stop making the video. Finally, I did say there was one way they could compensate. If being a vegetarian, they could sit in front of me and eat 8 cockroaches, I would not make the complaint. And here I am, so you know how that went,” she added.

The Instagram post received a lot of response from netizens who demanded the closure of the restaurant.

“This is soo terrible! They must be held accountable for sure!!,” wrote one user.

“I was thinking of trying food there , this is so horrible,” wrote another user.
