Quizzer:

Play a quiz and get a discount on your bill at the country’s first quiz themed restaurant. It may sound bizarre but this is how it works. You’ll be given a tab where you can see the menu and place the order. After that you have to answer eight questions on topics like general knowledge, Bollywood, current affairs and sports and each correct answer will shave off a part of your bill. If you answer five questions correctly it’s a 25% discount and if you answer 8 it’s a whopping 50% off on your entire bill. But the trick is you just have 15 seconds to answer each question. Try hard because the food is delicious. Think baked cheese pao bhaji buns, pull apart bread (oozing with cheese), fondue, freak shakes and a range of other interesting things.
