Patrons at one Indian restaurant will get the chance to dine while sitting on bean bags, according to an article in The Hindu. Yalla! Yalla!, a restaurant located in Chennai’s Radisson Hotel, features Middle Eastern street food cuisine. Bean bag seating add to the Middle Eastern ambience, as diners are required to use such seating when enjoying such far as falafel, baklava and vegetarian mezze.
The Hindu reports that waiters dressed in enviably chic harem pants and keffiyeh scarves scuttle about while dramatically whipping heads around in time to belly dancing. Located near the hotel’s swimming pool, Yalla! Yalla! was highlighted for its hawker-style stalls and canbanas.
Yalla! Yalla! is the latest establishment to use bean bag chairs. The Hindu reported in November that the High on Caffeine Sports Cafe also has bean bag seating and is popular among college students.
