Would you feel comfortable eating near a bunch of dead bodies? We sure hope the place is sanitary!

Everyone likes eating their dinner with some great spirits, but what about real spirits? That may very well be possible at The New Lucky Restaurant in Ahmedabad, India where restaurant owner Krishan Kutti built his restaurant in the middle of an old Muslim graveyard.

Approximately a dozen graves are scattered around the restaurant, protected by metal grates so that the coffins aren’t tampered with.  Every morning, according to The Mirror, waiters decorate the grave with flowers.

Instead of being spooked by the cemetery, Kutti decided to roll with the idea, and seat his guests next to real raised coffins.

"The graveyard brings good luck. Our business has been flourishing because of these graves,” Kutti told The Mirror. "We have maintained the graves as they were. Our customers don't seem to mind."
