As my dear wife was away attending a mid-career residential training programme at MDI, Gurgaon (setting off almost a mid-life crisis!), I decided to hijack her from the campus for a dinner date. Choice of Indian Grill Room (IGR) for the dinner was influenced by plethora of its good reviews in an eatery rating website.

Delayed by the traffic snarls on NH-8 while travelling from Delhi and also by cars inching along an arterial road inside Gurgaon, we could reach the eatery by about 9.00 PM. Without any prior table reservation on our names, we reached the third floor of Suncity Business Tower on Golf Course Road with a little apprehension. The smartly attired young guy at the reception guided us to a table in an almost empty restaurant. But no wishes…not even a faint smile…what an expressionless welcome, it almost gave us an inferiority complex for not measuring up to IGR's desired client profile!

The restaurant interiors were impeccable with spacious seating arrangements and food counters at the centre. The chefs were at work in an open kitchen visible to all on one end. The designer did a good job in mixing the modernism with heritage…we liked the brownish ceramic flooring and lights focused on the tables with adequate illumination all over the restaurant. The seating ranged from intimate two-somes to long tables for family get-togethers to secluded enclosures for private parties. After the dinner, we also saw IGR's open-air terrace dining facility, touted as its USP…could be better explored in milder climes!

We were offered the set menu for an assortment of grills and items on buffet (Rs.899/- all inclusive per person). And wow, then started our gastronomic delight with titillation of the taste-buds! The 'galawat kebabs' of both chicken and veg variants were too succulent and perfect in aroma with the right mix of condiments. 'Taareli machhi' and 'chingari jhinga' prepared from fish and prawns were superb…the fish tasted very fresh and the prawn was cooked in interesting spices! 'Tabak maaz' prepared from chunks of mutton and 'kozi prichatu', a grilled chicken preparation from Kerala, were also enjoyed by us. My wife did venture into veg grill items as 'tawa paneer' and 'dahi ki sooley' with tacit appreciation. But as a non-vegetarian to the core, I went in for repeat services for fish, prawn and chicken. The service staffs were warm and very efficient; the items were served in right pace for us to savour the food. The chef came to our table to enquire about our tolerance with the spice level.

With so many grilled items getting the better of us, we could hardly do any justice to the buffet spread. After dabbling with a 'lasuni naan', I went straight for steamed rice and mutton rogan josh. The rogan josh, prepared with a right balance of oil and spices, was evocative of a heavenly aroma! True to her Bengali instinct, my wife also had a foray into 'doi maachh'.

Many years ago when we used to be poorly fed, ever hungry hostellers, I wish IGR had existed those days! I could have truly embarked on a 'Man vs. Food' contest a la Indian style and I am sure the man would have won!

IGR is doing a great job…many thanks for your guided tour of our culinary voyage to delicacy land!

I had some work colleagues take me for dinner one evening, and I found the food and favors to be really nice. The buffet had a really good selection of Indian curry, and the service was good as well.

Poor reception - though table was booked, the Manager gave us a once over and almost refused entry despite our name being there. The starters were good but after that it was pathetic. Dirty plates - had to be replaced thrice. No taste in food and we had to literally beg for each roti/paratha ordered. The waiters seemed tired and disinterested. The see-through kitchen showed cooks scratching their heads, cleaning their ears, etc.

The loo was obnoxious.
Never visit.

As soon as you enter the place it feels nice and well lit and the setting is beautiful, they also have an open setting and that too looked great
The set menu option is great to start with and the Kebabs that were served to us were brilliant, melt in the mouth- the quality of the fish/prawns/chicken/mutton was awesome, the best was the Galauti kebabs served over a small soft tawa roti and the fish and this came along with a refreshing lemonade which was again very good
The main course had something for every one and was not bad at all, although i felt for such a place they had limited options in the Deserts
will definitely visit again and is highly recommended

Although we visited this Restaurant a few months back but the memory is still fresh. Amazing service and great food. We were with kids would occasionally run around but the staff was very courteous. The wine we had ordered got Corked and was replaced instantly with apology!! I especially loved the outdoor seating area. Would love to go there again. I will definitely recommend this place for a dinner!!
