Dining With Dead: This Restaurant in India built atop a cemetery has tables set up around coffins

The restaurant is home to 12 coffins.

Talk about a grave ambience.

Diners at New Lucky Restaurant in Ahmedabad, India, literally eat their meals at tables scattered among coffins.

Diners are unperturbed by eating alongside coffins.

Owner Krishnan Kutti had bought land for his restaurant before realizing that it was a former cemetery. Undeterred, he decided to simply build his restaurant anyway, setting up tables around the coffins. Twelve of them dot the restaurant, and are believed to be remnants of an old Muslim cemetery.

According to Atlas Obscura, Kutti believes that eating among the dead is good luck, hence the name of the establishment. Whether that’s true or not, the restaurant has been a popular local spot for over five decades.

The coffins are cleaned daily.

The coffins are separated from diners by white metal fences, and are cleaned and adorned with fresh flowers daily.

The restaurant serves everything from coffee, juice, and sandwiches, to soups, curries, fried rice, and noodles.
