"Hot idlis with podi and Upma Pessarattu paired with many kinds of chutneys are the most-selling items in our Babai Hotel. It’s been 74 years and our quality has never changed. We have had celebrities and politicians including NTR and ANR come over to try our piping hot tiffins. Initially, it was a kiosk but we recently renovated and reopened this huge building. During that time, the hotel was closed for six months. When we were back, bigger and better, we received the same amount of love and demand from our customers. Sometimes, it is overwhelming. The relationship we share with them is highly cordial. We have a few regulars whose days don’t start without our idlis. Every time they’re here, we receive them with the same amount of respect and attention. It makes them happy. Similarly, our staff is also very cooperative. We have people working with us for longer than two or three decades. It’s all a team work, at the end of the day. If not for all of them doing their best, our hotel wouldn’t be the same." #BabaiHotel#OldIsGold#Vijayawada#Andhra#HumansOfAndhra
