Come celebrate the festival of Diwali (the biggest festival in India) with a Go Eat Give style fair. We will tell you all about this auspicious festival, with authentic cuisine, shopping & more!
Archna Becker, owner of Bhojanic moved from North India to the US at the age of 11. Today, her grandmother, mother and father are three of the main chefs at her Atlanta based restaurant.The food you find at Bhojanic is exactly like the food cooked in the homes of Northern India. The amazing food Archna produces for her restaurant as well as her catering business is truly mesmerizing.
