Major update (15 May 2008): This post stands null and void now, as Delhi Chats have effected a hike of about 25% on all their items.
-------------Original Post----------------------Almost every eatery in Chennai has effected a price hike recently citing hike in prices of essential commodities. But one eatery in Chennai, Delhi Chats in Thiruvamniyur area, hasn’t increased its rates (with exception of few selected items) since past 2 years
Delhi chats serves north Indian dishes and is quite popular in the locality among north Indians who reside in nearby areas. I noticed recently, the prices of most of the items have remained same since past two years, while almost every other hotel/restaurant has increased the price by few rupees for most of their items.
Is Delhi chats taking a dip in profits? Or do they have an efficient supply chain and inventory management to mitigate the effect of inflation?(May be their own farm nearby which supplies vegetables?) I don’t know. They also door deliver free even for a small order of 30 Rs.
If you’re aware of any other restaurant in your locality which hasn’t increased the prices in past few years drop a comment.
