Commenting on the event, Uzma Irfan – Director, Prestige Group said “With Bangalore on the list of the Top 10 most developed cities in India, it’s no surprise that people from all over the country and the world flock to the city. As a result, it is now fast emerging as a hub for hospitality and food, with international food chains establishing a presence in the city. The rapid change in Bangaloreans’ food preferences is reflected in the large number of restaurants that have opened across various categories of world cuisine.”
