Ahmedabad: India's first underwater restaurant, ‘The Real Poseidon' was shutdown just a day after it became operational.

According to Indian Express, The leakage problems forced the joint to shut down temporarily owing to maintenance woes till February 6.

The restaurant located at South Bopal in Ahmedabad  had garnered huge publicity and got 150 odd bookings on its debut day itself.

"There has been some leakage in the restaurant and it has been temporarily shut down for maintenance. We are trying to solve the issue so we are not taking any bookings now. The restaurant will reopen on February 6,”  Indian Express quoted restaurant's employee as saying.

However, other reports also suggested that the restaurant had allegedly begun operations without the necessary development permission from the civic authority.

"The restaurant will be issued a notice and we will seal it on Thursday because it has not sought the mandatory development permission under the town planning rules,” Devang Desai, deputy municipal commissioner, AMC told TOI.

Deriving its title from the Greek God of Sea-Posiedon , the restaurant was created 20 feet below ground level  and filled with 1,50,000 litres of water and featured around 4000 fish and marine species sourced locally

Run by city-based businessman, Bharat Bhatt, the restaurant serves only vegetarian meals. Visitors need take the stairs down to a tunnel-based dining hall where they can dine while enjoying the view.
