Prime Minister Narendra Modi tonight hosted dinner for his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie at famous ‘Agashiye’ restaurant, known for its elegance and kosher Gujarati cuisine. Modi played a perfect host to Abe and the first lady at the terrace restaurant, a boutique heritage hotel in the old city.

The iconic hotel offers a view of the city’s heritage spots including the ‘Siddi Sayeed Ni Jaali’ mosque the Abes visited earlier in the day. It is located in the vicinity of the main heritage attractions like Bhadra Fort, Juma Masjid and Manek Chowk.

After visiting the 16th century Sidi Saiyyed Mosque in evening, Modi and the Abe couple took a brief tour of the heritage hotel property and enjoyed the a performance of musical instrument ‘Jal Tarang’.

Though the hotel is famous for offering traditional Gujarati food, the menu for the Japanese premier and his wife was mostly kept under wraps. The Japanese first couple is on a two-day India visit which would be limited to Gujarat, Modi’s home state.
