Restaurants and small eateries have an immense pressure of keeping their businesses running and they often come up with some unique tactics of marketing.

But this time, a new restaurant in Delhi has chosen a unique name and Twitter is loving it.

Netizens have a hearty laugh, many make jokes at name
The post left netizens in splits.
Many of them poured in laughing emoticons.
While others made jokes on the name as one netizen wrote, "Someone giving direction 'dusri biwi ke pass hu' (I am with the second wife)."
Another netizen felt the restaurant will do good business with the name, as he wrote, "A very catchy name. The restaurant will do a soaring business."
Is the name funny or sexist? What do you think?
Apart from the jokes, the writer feels the name is also sexist.
It's high time people stop assuming that a wife's (first or second) primary work is to cook.
However, we do believe the owners had no intention of hurting anyone's sentiments.
Also, not everything meant as a joke should be taken seriously.
