Bollywood Is Everywhere in the World. This Indian Restaurant in Shanghai Proves It!


Vacations are always fun. Different experiences, new culture, different food, different people and a whole bunch of things to explore. I have realised that everything about roaming around is fun, but after a while, all we crave is good food. However, most of us get bored with the usual food soon and end up craving homely, Indian meals.

We Indians are foodies and after indulging in fancy food, do feel like going back to dal and roti at least once, on a trip to treat our taste buds. Indian markets do have a lot of Chinese stuff so we thought why not find out something Indian in China.
