As the name suggests, you can order any dish you wish to eat and they will make and deliver it at your doorstep. This is the first time such a concept has been started in Kashmir Valley.

Her customers have been ordering Korean and European food apart from traditional meals popular in the valley. On average she has been receiving 10 orders a day. Take away option has been booming in India after the COVID-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted. 

"We make any kind of dish. We have a menu and that's also unique to Kashmir. We make middle eastern dishes. Customers have asked for Korean dishes and so many other unique dishes. We have to find ingredients and it may take a day to complete such orders," says Mir Toyyibah.
