JAIL KHANA: A restaurant with the theme of a Jail.
RETRO CAFE: A cabaret stage with dim light decor makes the ambiance perfect for 70's era. Dine here to relive those nostalgic moments.
KHAU GALLI: It's the same that we see in most of the suburbs & towns in Mumbai. An alley with food stalls!! You have variety of spread to choose from. The only drawback I found here was it was very hot & with less ventilation.

1) These sets were open when I visited here in the Oct 2018. The same sets mentioned may or may not be available as they get dismantled if they have an order of new one. Hence you may explore a new construction when you visit there.
2) While touring around we found few electric vans for the convenience of the passengers. Avail these service & ask them to take you at the end of the Theme park. Start exploring from the last set & gradually ending your day & theme park at the entrance, with this you will waste less energy.
3) For most of the sets, there are representative who will take you around & run you through the history of the set.
