β€œThe initial idea of introducing GIRF was to bridge the gap between our two key stakeholders – customers and restaurants. We wanted to change the way Indians were dining and also help in growth of the restaurant industry in the long run. Our GIRF is one such festival for which both the diners and restaurants wait throughout the year. The increment in number of diners and partner restaurants in each edition has been the testimony of the festival's success. The 4th edition of GIRF is even grander than its previous editions and a win-win for both the consumers and restaurants.” said Ankit Mehrotra, co-founder & CEO – Go out for dinner .
