TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - While many of us sat down for a home-cooked meal on Christmas day, one local restaurant cooked up a feast for all to enjoy.

The open sign was flashing all day at Da Khyber Grill in Tallahassee. The restaurant just opened  on Mahan Drive in September.

The owner tells WTXL business has been great so far, but keeping the doors open on Christmas wasn't just about the bottom line.

"Christmas day is a day of happiness and sharing," said owner Farman Ullah. "I think it was our part to contribute to the community and to be a part of their happiness; to be open for them and if they want, they can come enjoy a meal with us." 

The restaurant also offered 15% off everyone's check as a Christmas gift to customers.
