“The cuisine at Peshawri is inspired by the essence of North-West Frontier tradition, of camaraderie around the warm glow of a campfire – hence the decor comprising of rough-hewn trestle tables and wooden stools complete the rugged look. In these days of constant global change, when every restaurant changes to take on a new ‘avatar’, it offers a time-tested enduring experience and therein lies its uniqueness”,said Samir Ghose, General Manager, Welcomhotel Bhubaneswar.
