Some dishes are also named after cricketers like Kapil Dev and Yuvraj Singh.

What makes these thalis unique and expensive is that the portions are large enough for 10 people to eat together.

In order to make desserts and sweet dishes more attractive, they are named after famed cartoon series -- Micky Mouse, Tom and Jerry and the latest Chhota Bheem.

"The basic idea of naming Thali's after celebrities was to remind their great work for nation," Rajveer Singhania, the owner of the restaurant said.
