The idea behind the restaurant

Often celebrity owned restaurants can get into a little chaos. But with a mutual friend Maneesh Goyal the restaurant is all set to serve! Goyal, who is friends with both Rabin and PC, calls himself the project’s “initiator.” A few years ago goyal and rabin reached out to Mr. Nayak (chef of SONA) and called in Priyanka Chopra Jonas . Goyal said that PC agreed to involve but on one condition,“not until I try the food. And then I want my mom to try the food.”

After food tasting of food SONA came into existence. Construction started in late 2019 with plans of opening the Indian style restaurant in New York City in 2020. Due to worldwide lockdown the opening was postponed to 2021.
