But Ravinder Restaurant service defines Taxable Service  as ''service provided or to be provided to any person by a restaurant, by whatever name called, having the facility of air-conditioning in any part of the establishment, at any time during the financial year, which has licence to serve alcoholic beverages, in relation to serving of food or beverage, including alcoholic beverages or both, in it premises.''  Also Circular no. 173/8/2013-ST clarifies that services provided by a specified restaurant in other areas e.g. swimming pool or an open area attached to the restaurant, are taxable. It does not mention about room service in food. Please justify ur answer.
