Best breakfast in town

It really is. Anyone I have ever recommended this place to has come back singing praises. I am talking about Di Ghent Cafe in Cross Point Mall near Galleria (link goes to the Zomato page for Di Ghent). If you like pancakes, waffles, eggs done in dozens of different ways, shakes, and great coffee for your breakfast then this is the place to go. They have wonderful...

Visit Sawasdee Thai Spa for your well-being

Update (July 2014): between when I wrote this post and today there was a period when the service quality and this spa had declined a fair bit (other pages on this site discuss this fact). Having said that, the current level of service is much better (I have visited this spa a few times in this year). They are better than 80-90% of the spas in Gurgaon, I would say...

Best taxi cab service in town

It would actually be almost unfair to call Uber a taxi service. Why? Well, it is unlike any taxi service you have ever used in India. They have the nicest support department, the nicest drivers (so far), and the nicest cars (my last 3 rides have been a Toyota Camry, an Audi Q3, and an Audi Q3). The price is not that bad too compared to the competition out there...

Of course, I do...

Beautiful handmade creations at Karmi Kreations

Recently, we were meeting some friends for a Christmas lunch and wanted to buy some gifts for their children. Now, the tough question always is what do buy which they do not already have. Something different (not just chocolates). So, going through Facebook, my wife came across Karmi Kreations. A small business run by a lady by the name of Shailza who makes these...

The Cup n Cake Factory

I should have made this particular post ages ago since I have been visiting this delightful place for a while now. My daughter (2.5 years old) loves these cup cakes. I have never been a cup cake person, but I LOVE these cup cakes. Everyone we have shared these cup cakes with, love these cup cakes. Well, now that I have gotten ahead of myself, let me step back and...

A good and honest car mechanic in Gurgaon

Jun 16

This is a guest post by Anu who is another resident of Gurgaon wanting to share her experiences with everyone. Two months ago, during a routine servicing, I asked Pearl Honda, Gurgaon to remove an air freshener that was stuck to the dashboard (because I used to have a driver with BO issues). They not only removed the air freshener but also peeled off the black...
