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 or smell. For me it plays strongly on two other senses – your sight (the presentation makes you look twice) and your sense of what is normal – since nothing here is normal. Every dish is presented in a different format, something you are not familiar with, but every time you bite into it, it brings to you a strong sense of familiar flavors and memories – with a hint of something new.
And the food tastes really good and looks really good (just check out photos on zomato or tons of other review sites). Now good food is one thing, but even the drinks that accompany them are a class apart (whether alcoholic or non). You will enjoy your time there. You must visit at least once (then you will be sure to return).
If you plan to take along children, make sure that you go for lunch and not dinner – friends tell me that the place is not children friendly in the evenings. If you plan to go in the evenings or in the peak of lunch hour then try to call ahead and make a reservation – else you may have to wait in a long line. This place gets busy and the clientele is generally pretty good (as is the case in most spots at Cyberhub). The cost is not what would be called cheap, but it is not very expensive either. For a couple, it should be in the Rs. 2000 range. Although if you have an American Express card, you can use the points on your card to pay for your food there.
I have been to this place several times – its a perfect spot to hang out with friends; a great place to take customers (which I always do), even if it is not very formal. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. You can feel that they want you there. The ambiance is great. All in all, a great experience. You must visit.
