Mumbai: If you are an ardent MS Dhoni fan, you might not need to pay the bill at this restaurant. The restaurant-- 'MS Dhoni hotel' is owned by Shambhu Bose in Alipurduar district of West Bengal. Shambhu Bose feeds every MS Dhoni fan for free, who visits his restaurant.

"This Durga Puja (festival), we will complete two years. Everyone here knows this place well and come to eat here. Ask anybody around for the Dhoni hotel -- there's no way you can miss it," the 32-year-old told IANS.

Showing his admiration towards the former skipper, Shambhu Bose said," He is like no other. I have loved him since I was a child. The way he is and the way he plays the game of cricket is stuff that legends are made of. He is an inspiration to me."

The small yet well-lit eatery serves mainly Bengali cuisine throughout the day. Posters of Dhoni are displayed in almost every corner of the restaurant.

Bose wishes to meet MS Dhoni one day. "I know my dream will never come true, but if I get to meet him someday, I will request him to come to my humble eatery. I know he likes bhat macch (rice and fish curry)," said Bose.
