(Scroll down for video) A new restaurant in India, soared in popularity as diners love to eat next to the dead.

The owner of the restaurant, which is located in Ahmadabad, said that the graves are great for business.

The New Lucky Restaurant set up its tables alongside real coffins, which were originally part of a Muslim cemetery. After buying the property, Krishan Kutti decided to preserve the graves rather than rip them out to make way for his restaurant.

“The cemetery brings good luck our business, which has been flourishing, because the graves give people a unique experience. We have maintained the graves as they were. Customers do not seem to mind,” Kutti said.

A total of 12 tombs are inside the restaurant, and they have been cordoned off by iron bars. Every morning, waiters spend some time cleaning the tombstones and decorating them with fresh flowers.
