What makes the dining experience at a restaurant, memorable? Is it the food? Of course, that’s most certain, but also the attention to little details; the decor; the service; even the music and the lighting, all come together to make a lasting impression in our minds for us to revisit the place. This singular experience is not just limited to a fine dining restaurant; a dining experience could be made quirky and special irrespective of the hefty bill at the end!

So here’s our pick of four such singular restaurants, from four corners of the country, that not just offer a delicious fare but also boast of a dining experience with a difference. Read on.
