amarhealth: Why restaurant Business?
Urmi Mahmood: Actually this was my dream. It is one of my many dreams and there are so many restaurants in Dhaka city but its still hard to find a restaurant with hygienic food and healthy environment.
amarhealth: Do you think that Thali is different from other restaurants?
Urmi Mahmood: Yeah! We are very careful in selecting ingredients. We serve fresh and good quality food.
amarhealth: Which thing matters most in determining Thali’s foods taste?
Urmi Mahmood: Customer’s health is our main concern. Our food is not oily but spicy and of course healthy.
amarhealth: Have you taken any steps to maintain a hygienic environment of the restaurant?
Urmi Mahmood: Washroom facilities are not adequate in restaurants especially in Dhanmondi area. most of the restaurant’s washroom is so small. There is no separate washroom for male and female. And for this reason, both men, women, and children have to use the same washroom which is really unhygienic. Thali has three washrooms; one for male, one for female and one is common washroom.
amarhealth: what is the specialty of food?
Urmi Mahmood: Indian food is the main attraction of Thali. We have Indian chef that's why our customers can get pure Indian taste.
amarhealth: How is the environment of the kitchen?
Urmi Mahmood: I am very concerned about this issue. Personally, i am very aware of cleanliness. Besides my family, friends come here regularly to take food. I think Thali’s customers are part of my family.
amarhealth: Arrangements for children's entertainment?
Urmi Mahmood: Children get healthy playing environment here. There are art tools for children which are helpful for their mental growth.
