En­joy sump­tu­ous food at Patna zoo

Hindustan Times (Patna) - - METRO - Reena Sopam

PATNA: Here are some new year gifts for the Pat­naites.

A ren­o­vated and taste­fully de­signed restau­rant at the Patna zoo is ready to of­fer peo­ple the lux­ury of sump­tu­ous food along with the view of the lake, the lush green veg­e­ta­tion and a wide va­ri­ety of wildlife species.

Those who are fond of ice cream and other dairy prod­ucts, do not need to go out as a new Sudha par­lour has been set up near the toy train sta­tion at the Patna zoo.

Deputy chief min­is­ter Sushil Ku­mar Modi launched th­ese fa­cil­i­ties on Mon­day.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, Modi said that many new things have been added to the zoo to en­hance its at­trac­tions.

“The elec­tronic tick­et­ing sys­tem has al­ready been in­tro­duced and the en­try ticket too has been made more at­trac­tive. The newly devel­oped restau­rant too is a part of this plan. More than R19 lakh has been spent on the project,” he said. At the ground floor, there are four stalls of Chi­nese food, South In­dian cuisines, ice cream and snacks. But the restau­rant at the first floor has been de­signed to of­fer va­ri­eties of Dosas and other veg­e­tar­ian cuisines. An open ter­race is also at­tached to the restau­rant to en­joy food in open.

The Patna zoo di­rec­tor, Abhay Ku­mar said, “Ice cream ball of hardly Rs 5 will also be avail­able at the Sudha par­lour.” A float­ing jetty has been launched to make the boat­ing fa­cil­ity at the park more con­ve­nient. “But the boat­ing will not be al­lowed on New Year day. A cou­ple of two seater boats have also been launched and eight more such boats will be brought in the coming days,” he said.
