During that time the options on offer were Cafe Roadhouse, a 'fast food' eatery for a quick bite
on the go in the pre Mac Donald era; the ever favorite Mughlai at The Caravan Serai, which served
“a mean Nargisi Kofta”, as the redoubtable food critic, the late Sabina Sehgal Saikia had declared,

Milestone quickly expanded, to build up a repertoire of hospitality, entertainment, and leisure
facilities: Club 32- the bar, banquets, and 20 well-appointed rooms, followed in quick succession.

during its tenure, it held the Guinness World Record for the World’s Longest Dance Party –a 50 hours
dance-marathon, as proof of its popularity at its height.
