Despite the mystery surrounding who was behind the helicopter delivery service, people were still eager to line up for their favourite dish.

I have also received a number of calls from my family, friends and regular customers who asked me who was the person who bought the ‘nasi ganja’ and had them delivered by helicopter. To be honest, I don’t know.
