The end of an era

Post - - Comment -

THANK you POST for not for­get­ting our fa­mous and house­hold name, Vic­tory Lounge, which sadly closed its doors af­ter over 70 years.

Ever since I can re­call, I have been cap­ti­vated by the sto­ries of Vic­tory Lounge. The restau­rant was a place one would al­ways want to re­turn to, even for a cup of tea. It had a rep­u­ta­tion for neat­ness, painstak­ing prepa­ra­tion of their fa­mous cur­ries. The suc­cess of Vic­tory Lounge can be at­trib­uted to the in­put and ded­i­ca­tion by the Mood­ley fam­ily.

I can re­mem­ber, as a young man, the per­son­alised ser­vice and a truly mem­o­rable venue, with its ar­ray of con­fec­tionery – it will not be for­got­ten. To the Mood­ley fam­ily, you have closed a chap­ter in his­tory. Even if you con­sider mov­ing and con­tinue the magic that you gave the com­mu­nity, it will never be the same.

Maybe it’s time for Fa­rook Khan to launch a book of all the fa­mous eat­ing houses so that his­tory will not be for­got­ten.
