Hello, nice to meet you. My name is Kris Mukherjee, the manager of mygoldgame shopping center. I want to talk to you about our business cooperation. Please contact me! You will get thousands or tens of thousands of rupees every day. This is my (Telegram) APP account +91 77192 17847.
Ajay, I’ve been partnering with a couple notable San Carlos restaurants and thought I could add some value so made this short personalized video. It shares how to easily get an extra 30+ customers every week and get a better return from your Yelp ads. If you’re interested in discussing the details, just let me know! Hope this helps. Daniel Schulte 816-352-7565
It is wonderful food and good service... but the décor lighting is very dark for the day time.( I was happy to be sitting near a window ) and it was freezing in there in the Winter time!! that's not good customer service.. keeping it a little cool to keep people moving is OK but it was freezing 😮need to get a heating system put in!
