Decent snacks and average cocktails. Stick to the regular spirits and you should be fine. Good outdoor seating for the cool summer evenings.

An excellent bar with a serious mixologist. Prices are in the top 10 percentile of similar restaurants. Definitely worth a visit

My friend took us over to the place as part of his wife's birthday celebrations. We had a booking for 9 pm but since we got delayed, we had shifted it to 10 pm, which Whisky Samba had agreed. This was on a Saturday.

Unfortunately it was a day before before polling and we knew that drinks wouldn't be served, being a dry day. We were going only for the ambience and food.

The place is huge with adequate seating and comfortable chairs.

Disconnect 1 - No welcome drink even for a group of 10 people.

Disconnect 2 - Green leafy design Wallpaper work in the washroom was being put and the task of cutting the paper etc. was happening right in the main area.

Disconnect 3 - Somehow the food didn't measure up to our taste. Tried dimsums ( broth was too acidic), Sattu paratha with mushroom was ok, lemon rice with pahadi chicken disappointing, plus a dish with some rice pakoda with some chicken and sauteed spinach n greens...didn't tickle my tastebuds at all.

Disconnect 4 - The wooden partition in the Men's washroom was broken and needed repairs.

Disconnect 5 - The whisky bottles on the display behind the bar were covered with a untidily put black plastic, looking simply abnoxious. I am sure that there's a much better way of meeting the Dry day compliances.

Plus point was the service promptness since there was hardly any crowd.

I had heard a lot of this place and having reviewed quite a few joints in Gurgaon, I was frankly very disappointed. Usually I do not give such low ratings to a pub / restaurant, but my experience was bad. Maybe those one off days.....

It would take quite some effort to revisit the place again.

Whisky samba is much talked about bar and restaurant in horizon 1 , it is a large bar with big choice of alcohol and cocktails. a great place to be in. Food menu is with a little twist , barley Risotto with ghee , Bihari red rice with mushroom , etc. food preparation and presentation was good. Prices are bit stiff.
