I have a different view about the chefs.. I think Bhatt was the one who started all this hitting, burning, throwing objects at comalis, thinking it was funny and adding content..and slowly Damu also caught up I guess, thinking it is liked by audience... Bhat in the last episode had to indirectly apologize or clarify his stand with the comalis and explain that they just over react and they are not really hurting..applying bandage to his actions. If Damu continues he will also have to do the same.. they just get carried away with the attention and comments and react! As far as food review, Yes Damu always prefers non-veg dish over veg and any cook has this advantage with him It was unnecessary to slap mani..paavam. Not sure if he intended to hit her seriously or by accident it happened that way...I too felt Mani was shocked. poor girl! Also constantly commenting, "with a comali like her you made this", she felt bad this time.
