A four-day-old restaurant fed over 20 flood-stricken families around Nadi on Monday.

The Punjabi Kitchen which opened last Friday, March 30, is located at Martintar, Nadi.

Nadi is one of the areas in the West which was badly hit by floods on Sunday morning caused by heavy downpour associated with Tropical Cyclone Josie.

Owner Jag Singh said he was deeply touched by what he read in the newspaper yesterday and he thought of a way to help.

So instead of selling food, he said it was best to donate it for the needy families.

“We prepared lunch… rice, palau, bread and omelette,” he said.

“We are already cooking and preparing food for dinner as well.

“I am not a big businessman, but this is all I can afford.”

Mr Singh said he would try his best, depending on what he could afford to continue cooking for the next few days.

Originally from Punjab, Mr Singh said together with his family, they came to Fiji with hopes of starting their own business.

He invested $50,000 in the restaurant which serves Punjabi food. He expects to open another restaurant in Suva in the next few months.
