One8 Commune Pune Branch’s manager Amit Joshi has opened up about the entire matter and disclosed the restaurant’s policy. He says we don’t discriminate against anyone and people of all gender are allowed. He also said that “We have restriction on stag entry which means individual boys are not allowed within the premises,” as quoted by Indian Express.

Explaining the reason for the restriction, Joshi said this is for the safety of female guests inside the restaurant. When the Delhi branch of One8 Commune was asked about the same issue, the reply was the same “We never say no to our guests.”
