Asked why he chose to open a restaurant in ‘Little India’ which is already packed with eateries, and how he would beat the competition, Gurpal Singh said he was counting on the good location of the restaurant. Paratha Grill occupies the premises of what used to be ‘Little India Grill.’ Close to the main road, it has good visibility. Also the city of Artesia is planning on soon implementing it plan to create a downtown promenade which he says will attract a lot more visitors to the area and prove to be a fillip to the business. Paratha Grill is located at 18383 Pioneer Blvd, Artesia, Ca -90701. Phone: 562-924-7569 or visit www.parathagrill.com.
