Student life is all about having fun, bunking lectures (sometimes) and hanging out with your friends. It is one of those phases of life when you don’t have enough money to spend in fancy Restaurants but always energetic to go out there and have some good time with your friends.

All of us have rushed to some restaurants when we were too exhausted after those long lectures in college. So here are some student friendly restaurants that won’t burn your pockets especially when you are hungry and broke. You can thank us later!
