The famed eatery was founded by Sardar Parkash Singh in 1956 mainly to cater to the needs of truck drivers. Now it is being looked after by his sons Amrik Singh and Sukhdev Singh. Simple fare of dal roti, sabzi, and chawal was served on charpais initially. Over the years as the patronage grew, the menu was increased to include most of the north Indian and south Indian dishes. On popular demand mouth-watering Chinese, Continental food and an array of sweet dishes were also added. Today, Sukhdev is a major landmark on the GT Road, known far and wide for its matchless recipes, faultless service and an ambience to relax and rejuvenate.
