“A little expensive; but a wonderful way of spending an evening with friends.”
Reviewed February 7, 2011

Kingdom of Dreams, located in Gurgaon is split up into two parts: culture gully (khao gully) and nautanki mahal.

I went to this place on a sunday evening. Culture gully is a street featuring stalls of different states. All of these stalls provide food and/or shopping options. This gully is covered with a high roof made to resemble day time sky. And it does the job pretty well. At 8 in the evening; you would feel as if its 11 in the morning! Food is good; and not very exorbitantly priced.

Nautanki Mahal is a state of the art auditorium. 'Zangoora' was being performed the day I went. It was fabulous. It had the best visual effects I have seen in my life; although the script needed some improvement. It starred Hussain Kanjarwala and Gauhar Khan. Food and beverages (hard/soft drinks) could be purchased inside the auditorium.

It's a must go

“Great Experience, Must do for tourists”
Reviewed December 21, 2010

Kingdom of dreams opened around 8 months ago in Gurgaon. It is currently a great destination for tourists, locals and more so for foreign guests visiting the country. To get here by public transport, you can catch the Delhi Metro till IFFCO Chowk station and then it is a 5-7 minute walk from the Metro station.

The place is broadly divided into two sections. One is called Culture Gully. This is essentially an enclosed area housing a Food Court. But don't expect an ordinary food court. They have put up small buildings housing the local specialties for the large states of India (Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, etc) You can either eat the food sitting on the sidewalk or some states have a proper sit down restaurant as well. The place is done up beautifully and is interspersed with shopping spaces where you can buy souvenirs

The mechanism to get inside is that you need to purchase a smart card from the entrance. One card for each person. The card will cost Rs. 1500 on weekends and slightly lesser on weekdays. The card includes Rs. 1400 of cover charges for the food court inside and Rs. 100 as the card fees. Of these Rs. 100, you can redeem Rs. 50 once you have returned the card back to the system. So in all, you end up spending Rs. 50 as purely entry fees. There are multiple places inside where you can recharge the card.

Across the food court, there are a lot of performers who keep on doing their routines. Most of these routines are folk dances or songs from across the country. This is also a great experience for people who have not been exposed to far off cultures such as thos from North East India, etc

The only downside is that the place is expensive. Local specialties all cost upwards of Rs. 200 each and a dinner for 2 can easily cost you Rs. 1200. The food however is pretty authentic. People who love to experiment with their food will love this place

The other section is an auditorium called 'Nautanki Mahal' which is the staging area for a Braodway like production called "Zangoora". The tickets for this can be bought separately at the venue and also purchased online. The production is really good and the story is a typical bollywood movie saga. The special effects and stage production is on par with international standards. The tickets for this cost from Rs. 750 right upto Rs. 5000 for the comfortable recliner chairs. However the Rs. 1000 and the Rs. 1500 seats are pretty well placed

Would definitely recommend this place for foreign tourists or clients visiting the country. This is also ideal for people who do not have enough time to travel across the country. Great place for foodies and finally Zangoora is a great end to the evening

“Something Unique”
Reviewed December 15, 2010

The whole concept is unique. There are different food counters state wise inside the food galley e.g. Delhi, Punjab, Goa, Kerela etc and also some handicrafts. The entry fee is Rs500 which includes Rs350 credit on all the spends inside. The quality of food was also good. I feel, this is a must go place if you are visiting gurgaon anytime in future.

“Enchanting...”
Reviewed November 21, 2010

It is one of its kind in India. Truely a dream attraction. Very posh and grand. Palacetial architecture is amazing.

"Chattori Gali" is more of a covered & air-condtioned "Delhi-Haat". Very wide variety of food from across India and very reasonably priced. Shopping of artifacts and other items may seem to be bit costly & over-priced.

Cover charge ensures certain class of crowd.

Ambience of "Maikhana" is amazingly intoxicating. Food & decoration at Lucknow resturant takes an edge over others.

Muscial show (Zangoora) is a new experience for Indians. Looks a bit over priced though but it is worth trying.
