The Dasaprakash brand has been in the catering and hospitality business since 1921. The founder of Dasaprakash Late Shri K. Seetha Rama Rao started expanding in the southern part of India with many Dasaprakash South Indian restaurants and hotels in Chennai (Madras), Mysore and Ooty.

In 1979, Dasaprakash came to North India, with Mr. K. Balakrishna Rao son of Late Shri K. Seetharama Rao opening the first restaurant in New Delhi at the Ambassador Hotel. Dasaprakash Restaurant & Ice Cream Parlour (P) Ltd has taken the legacy of Mr. Rao forward by opening new outlets in Jaipur, Agra, Lucknow, Vrindavan, Ahemdabad, Ghaziabad and many new locations in India and Abroad.

Historically, Dasaprakash has had the honour of hosting various parties to many dignitaries like Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, Mr. Moraji Desai, Maharaja of Mysore, Maharaja of Trvancore, Dr. V. V. Giri, Prof John Galbraith, Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy and various politicians and dignitaries.

I am happy to know that Hotel Dasaparkash will be celebrating the centenary of their moonlight dinners on 25th August 1963.I send my greeting and best wishes on the occasion.

H. E. Shri Bishnuram Mehdi, 
Governer of Madras

Under the efficient management of Shri K. Seethrama Rao, Hotel Dasaprakash has made a name as one of the finest residential hotels in the metropolis of Madras. The moonlight Dinners arranged periodically are becoming increasingly popular with the public. The management deserve to be congratulated on the care and attention taken to cater to the public.

I wish Hotel Dasaprakash a very bright future and the Centenary Celebrations Of Moonlight Dinners every success.

His Highness the Maharaja of Mysore,

Mr. Seetharama Rao’s pioneering effort at running a number of hotels to cater for the needs of tourists deserves emulation. We should have more hotels like Dasaparkash all over the country; for, that would encourage Tourism, and promotion of tourism will result in strengthening the unity within the country.

Shri K. Kamraj, 
Chief Minister of Madras.
