Bhopal, Oct 23 (UNI) Good news for travellers and those heading outside cities for experimenting with their taste buds as a dhaba (wayside eatery) on the Bhopal-Indore road has been accorded the status of India's first ISO-certified dhaba thanks to cleanliness and quality of food and water.

'Dondi Highway Treat', in Sehore district's Dondi, also boasts of an air-conditioned family room and is owned by the Madhya Pradesh State Tourism Development Corporation (MPSTDC).

Despite its attractions, the dhaba is inexpensive and tourists may reinvigorate themselves with a cup of tea costing Rs five and Malwa's mouthwatering 'poha' at Rs 10 a plate.

''It was our desire to provide good restaurant-like arrangements for eating by the highway,'' said MPSTDC Managing Director Ashwini Lohani.

The International Organisation for Standardisation is responsible for the ISO 9000, ISO 14000, ISO 27000, ISO 22000 and other international management standards.
