The funkiest good food in Gurgaon

Or should I say, the best funky food in Gurgaon. Either way, the food at this place is really good. I am talking about Farzi Cafe at Cyberhub in Gurgaon. Even if you know nothing about molecular gastronomy (which this place applies to its dishes), you will still enjoy the sheer funkiness of the food presented at Farzi Cafe. Here, the food is not only about the taste...

Heritage Transport Museum in Gurgaon

Here’s an awesome way to spend a Saturday (or a Sunday, or any other day). Make a trip to the Heritage Transport Museum in Gurgaon. This place is pretty much a hidden treasure. If you are a car buff, you will love it. They have a decent collection of old cars (over 75 of them); a large number of non-motorized transports; a bunch of two-wheelers; a railway...

Best cocktails in gurgaon

Or at least some of the best. I am talking about Cocktails and Dreams Speakeasy in Sector 15, Gurgaon. Absolutely, my favorite place in Gurgaon these days. The cocktails are great (in Gurgaon, the bars in Oberoi are probably the only ones which can keep up, but these guys are better). They know their cocktails well (not so common in Gurgaon or in India in general)....

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...

The best dry cleaner and laundry in Gurgaon

I have always been struggling to find a reliable Dry Cleaning shop. I have always had just a few requirements from a dry cleaner: Pickup and drop-off from my home Meet delivery agreements (so, if you promised to deliver on Monday, it shouldn’t go beyond Monday) Take good care of my clothes and send them back properly And that’s it. Of course, I do...
