Dockyard, Sector 29, Gurgaon

Dockyards are always huge and thats what this restaurants gives you a feel about – Hugeeeee. Spread over two floors and with a lot of outside open area, the place is beautifully done.
You ll notice a lot of micro brewery apparatus as they serve fresh beer and a giant LED wall on the lower floor just behind the bar.
Waiting for a meeting, i landed up here and wanting to try different dishes, ordered a non vegetarian platter – having Fish, chicken and mutton kebabs
The Murgh tikka was amazingly flavored with tomato and chilly paste and well cooked.
Mustard flavored fish was very delcately treated and had an awesome tanginess to it.
and my all time favorite mutton chapli kebabs are a must try at this place.
Even this much food was a lot for 2-3 diners.
I was there for a late Lunch so it was pretty light and the service was great & efficient unlike some other places where everyone is almost sleepy at this hour of the day.
Definetly coming back to try some more of its offerings. 🙂

Tourist @ Janpath, CP, Delhi

I am a sucker for open spaces specially high rise roof tops. And if that place is set right in the middle of the busiest place of the busiest city in India its even better. Reading about it a lot, I landed at Tourist with a colleague for a quick bite.

An interesting concept with menu and a lot knick knacks inspired by some of world’s famous places, Tourist if spread across various levels with mutliple bars and a choice of seating options. Pick a cozy corner inside or an awe inspiring open air rooftop option.

We tried a COQ AU VIN ( I can never pronounce this tongue twisters correctly mannnnn. its embarassing:) The chicken in this dish was perfectly cooked and a reduction of Red wine sauce complimented in perfectly. The accompanying  veggies were beautifully cooked. It was the chefs recommendation.
We also got ourselved a thin crust pizza loaded with delicious cheese and chicken chunks and I totally forgot what they were called.
I have heard they a have some very nice desserts which due to shortage of time I had to skip. I ll be soon coming back for them.
The staff is super helpful though I guess even they are getting acquainted to such an Internationally diversified menu. Everything said and done… this place is a must try and fully recommended specially for your evening hangouts… Enjoy and have fun !!!!

Sunny Sunday Afternoon with Lights Camera Action, Rajouri Garden

On a sunny Sunday afternoon , the best place to be in Delhi is a beautiful rooftop . On a similar Sunday, i tried out the much famous Rajouri Garden now known for its buzzing restaurants. Landed up at LCA, with a very interesting bollywood theme.

They have a indoor as well as outdoor sitting spaces and we chose to be on the rooftop. It was just me and my daughter so we ordered a Penne pasta and a chicken pizza. Both of the dishes were well cooked and full of flavors. Loaded with cheese and lip smacking chicken chunks.. I loved the pizza more..

The staff was very courteous to get a warm drink for us as my daughter had a little cold going. It was a really nice gesture.

The place is a must visit for both a casual drink or a satiate your hunger.
