In the middle of summer the Sun shines at its full glow, and Gariful restaurant is always ready to welcome its guests.
There are plenty of people who show us their trust regularly, but the restaurant always attracts someone new with its charm, ambience and excellent food; and almost every day we have some celebrity here. This time it was a very well-known person from the world of sport, we may say a real star from the world’s most recognizable basketball league, the American NBA league.

It is not easy for anyone to play good games with some of the world’s biggest stars such as LeBron James, Kevin Durant orStephen Curry, but Nurkić’s points, jumps and blocks in such a strong rivalry represent a confirmation that he is a player of a top quality and world’s class, as well as he is able to play with the greatest competition in the world.
