Restaurants are now working hard to get back on their feet and adapting to the new normal. They are welcoming the people for dine-in services as the lockdown is lifted in most of India. 

Several cities across India, including Delhi, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad, are scurrying towards normalcy with a 70% estimated recovery rate in the festive quarter. Simultaneously, Chennai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Hyderabad are also getting back with a 55% recovery rate. After opening up in the last week, Mumbai and Pune have observed a promising 10x increase in diners than the previous weeks.
