The central dining hall, with a seating capacity of 100 diners is equipped with its own bakery and provides well-planned, varied, balanced and appetizing vegetarian food prepared in strict hygienic conditions. The day starts with serving of snacks and milk early in the morning and ends with serving nourishing milk before going to bed. We always seek perfection and are constantly on the vigil to detect and take care of even the slightest lacuna in the campus. Smooth functioning of the mess ensuring quality food preparation, appetizing varieties and mouth-watering aroma can only be realized by being there.
