On February 22, 2001, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on a new restaurant in Minneapolis, the Natraj India Kitchen. Although the restaurant is fairly typical in other respects, "the sound system delivers a recorded satsang -- a spiritual message delivered in Hindi by Indian Sikh guru Baba Gurindar Singh. While this recording plays, a restaurant employee makes a circuit of the dining room, stopping at each of the religious images to make an offering of burning incense." In addition, the menu features halal meats, which meet Muslim dietary regulations.
