“An open air restaurant with a character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

In corporate Gurgaon with all it's gleaming glass buildings and malls this came as a very pleasant surprise
It's an open air restaurant located inside the Rajiv Gandhi Solar Park in Leisure Valley and the ambiance is awesome. It's really really nice. Please do check it yourself.
The choice of menu is also very nice. They have great breakfast options (i tried the eggs) and good thalis and main course options too.
There is no reason to not like this place.
It's also the few places in Gurgaon which are good and reasonably priced.

“Nice place to hangout with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Went there with friends, good food and ambience. The place is quite a break from glass walled restaurants of gurgaon. The food is just nice. Service too wasnt impressive, not bad either. Go there when you have enough time to chat and relax

“Remarkable food at down to earth prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

I have visited this cafe three time now - twice with my colleagues and once with family. Each time the food served in this cafe has made me fall in love with this place.

First about the ambience - it is a small area covered by bamboo blinds from all side which uses fans & coolers ( no AC) for keeping the place cool. The view from each table is of the leisure valley park and at any point in time you can spot squirrels running past the courtyard in front. There are also a number of swings placed near the cafe so one can easily relax with a cup of tea while watching your kids playing.

Now about the food - I have tried the following items from the menu and each one has been excellent :
1) Anda parantha - Hot, fresh and crisp at the edges. Unfortunately they have stopped serving it. I hope someone from the management reads this and decides to add it back on the menu.

2) Aloo tikki - perfect amount of spice with a superb crisp coating on the outside. The green chutney served alongside is a brilliant accompaniment.

3) Akhrot tikki - lovely nutty filling of walnuts in the aloo tikki. Unfortunately this is also not on the menu anymore.

4) Pasta with white sauce - a classic! Served with a generous amount cheese

5) Egg curry platter - Curry reminds me of my mom's food, rotis are thin and soft, masala papad completes the meal

6) Veg biryani platter - The rice had a lovely fragrance and the raita was seasoned to perfection

7) Moong dal chila and Stuffed chila - Both are very well prepared, stuffed chila is quite filling

8) Veg grilled sandwich - Nice cheesy filling and the toast is grilled nicely

9) Scrambled eggs & Toast - As good as it gets!

10) Poha - The humble dish with a fiery tadka

And last but not the least - masala chai to wash down all the lovely food. Each time we have ended the meal, the total bill always comes as a pleasant surprise.

Want to go there as often as I can!

We are currently in the midst of developing an exciting new summer menu which will be launched soon.

“Excellent Outdoor Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Guess its only place in Gurgaon wherein you can have a good lunch with family in the middle of a park. Great place for children, plenty of space to run around and play. Food is above average. Service is good. Prices are reasonable.
The place has become much more popular in last couple of years and to their credit they are maintaining the standard and character of the place.
