On their first visit to the Spice of Life restaurant Demond, Nanji and two other men were the only customers. Now on their fourth visit in as many months, there was no table vacant. About four guests were sitting on a bench at the entrance waiting for a table. It was apparent that Arjun had convinced his boss to use the secret ingredient in their lassi. The crowd was mostly young backpackers and tourists. The word of mouth circulated faster than he had imagined.
Arjun recognized them coming in. He glanced around to see what he could do to seat them. There was a metal table close to the kitchen. He got two folding chairs from inside and motioned them to take their seat. Demond felt like a special guest. The location near the kitchen and the small table wasn’t what he liked but at least they didn’t have to wait and he was hungry. The guests waiting at the entrance glanced at them and winced but didn’t say anything.
“Business is good, huh?” Demond said to Arjun as they were seated.
