For many, it was a battle meeting the sudden spurt in demand in the early days of the lockdown.

In a group of 1,327 Indians participating in the Covid-19 Co­nsu­mer Se­ntiment Survey by BCG-Fa­cebook from Ap­ril 30-May 3, only 14 per cent said their spending on eating out would re­tu­rn to normal when there is some control over coronavirus and restaurants open up, while 39 per cent said it would take at least a few months for them to restart eating out. Also 43 per cent are expecting a de­crease in their overall spend, including eating out, over the next six months, says the report released in May.
