LAKE STEVENS — You can’t beat this deal: free food. All you can eat. Anyone can come.
Even during the holidays, that sounds too good to be true.
So, what’s the hitch?
There isn’t one.
Kewal Singh Johal and his wife, Jasbir Kaur, are doing it because of their Sikh religious beliefs.
They plan to give away a free Indian meal to anyone who wants one today from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Grand Taj restaurant at 600 91st Ave. NE in Lake Stevens.
"In our culture, we like to share with friends," Johal said. "We believe in God. We work hard."
Their entire family, which includes four children, and others have been working day and night to get ready for the feed. They expect about 1,000 people to take advantage of their offer.
While the restaurant has been doing well since it opened last year, Johal said that’s not the reason for the free meals. They did it last year before the eatery even officially opened.
They will serve top-quality, healthy Indian food, buffet style, Johal said. The restaurant can seat up to 60 people at a time, and there is an overflow area outside on the patio for a picnic format.
Now, if only the weather cooperates.
