This is definitely a hidden gem. Food is authentic Asian be it Chinese, Thai, Japanese or Indonesian. I went there with two of my Chinese colleagues and even they were very pleased with the quality of food. Serving portions are good and service is okay. Somehow this place is never crowded and in my opinion that's a plus.

just wanted to have soups for dinner so went to Red Hot Cafe - the service is ok starters are nice but the food is average - the Khou Swei was nice as thought the Tom yam Chicken was not up to the mark - you get a discount if you have a Citi Bank credt card!

Rred hot Cafe is one of the oldest Pan Asian restaurants in Gurgaon. It's located in the complex which also houses Pizza Hut near Galleria Market. The complex itself lacks maintenance in terms of lighting & accessibility. If you're coming from Iffco chowk then as soon as you take a left for Galleria Market, you'll reach here. Located on the first floor, this place has two entrances.

AMBIANCE

Loved the wall art which gives a nice, fresh feel to the place. The furniture is basic & looks dated yet comfortable. The ambiance here is charm & provides a quaint atmosphere to hold conversations. The air conditioning was good & made us feel comfortable throughout our dinner here.

FOOD

Being a vegetarian, I started with a BASIL LEAF BROTH. I loved the amalgamation of flavours of fresh basil & fried chopped garlic in the vegetable stock. It's a refreshing start for me. The serving size is sufficient for one person.

For Starters,

> MUSHROOM & BOK CHOY DIMSUMS were really well made. I loved the thin layer of these dimsums which were not sticky at all. The stuffing was aromatic & the bite was good. The accompanying thick, spicy sauce added to the flavour of these steamed veggie delights.

> NIGHT MARKET NACHOSI liked the crunchy texture of the nachos along with the topping of chopped tofu & bell peppers. The presentation was appetizing. The oily aftertaste of the nachos could be improved upon which would make this dish perfect for me.

> SOI 66 VEGETABLE SPRING ROLLS were nice & crunchy served with a sweet, chilli sauce.

Coming to the Main course,
> GAENG KIEW WAN VEGETABLE or the traditional Green Thai Curry is prepared using in-house curry paste. The slightly spicy, coconutty flavours were enjoyable & loved the creamy texture of the gravy. It paired up really well with the gooey texture of the sticky rice. The serving size, the presentation were spot-on. Recommended!

> GREEN ELEPHANT is a tangy combination of assorted vegetables including corns, broccoli & mushrooms. The presentation could have been better.

DESSERT

> MANGO ICE CREAM WITH COCONUT SHAVINGS
Loved the presentation on big, fresh leaves. The first bite left my taste buds confused as I could not taste either the mango or the coconut. There was a clear clash of both the flavours. Maybe more of either of these flavours would help to balance out the dish.

SERVICE

Servers were warm & could have been more attentive.

Overall, I loved the food here. The flavours were refreshing & my taste buds were pleased with the quality of food being served here. :)

One of the oldest Pan Asian restaurant in Gurgaon .. and totally in budget .. if you do not want to spend quite a sum.
The ambiance reminds you of an asian place for sure and the food does too.

On a dinner service the other night, we tasted quite a few dishes. A regular service started with salads.

There were 3 thai salads
- A summer pineapple cashew salad (Krabi Yum)
- The classic Som Tam
- The cold meat salad (Pattaya Laab Gai)

The only difference were probably with the raw materials, although they were surely the best we get in our country but somehow the fruits aren't a match the way we get in South Asia. The pineapple was more sour than sweet and etc, otherwise the salads did hit the brief perfectly well.

Basil Leaf Broth - I have always loved a clear soup, no matter what. Loved it here.

Dimsums -
- Mushroom & Bok Choy Crystal dimsums
- Chicken Dumpling with rice coat
Loved the veggie one but the chicken one was a tad bit disappointing, I mean considering how gorgeous they looked.

Soi 66 Vegetable Rolls - aka Popiah .. good enough to bite down a few.
Night market nachosi - Thin nachos with toppings, hmm .. nachos / Asian didn't ring much bell.
Jakarta Chicken Wings - Wings were nice. Wish they had a bit more meat in them :)

Pandan Fish Parcels - We are seeing a lot of fish parcels these days and have a lot to compare about, to be honest, they were a bit too well done. The fish felt like chicken should have been melt in mouth rather.
Eggplant Kingdom - Eggplants layered with fried onions and a few here and there things .. the dish was kinda oily and may be rightly so, egg plants soak oil like anything.
Green Elephant - baby corn, broccoli, snow peas and mushrooms in a tangy Thai sauce.
Gaeng kiew Wan Veggies aka Green thai curry - If you love Thai curries this would be up the green curries you would hae had.
Jade Lamb - Loved the crispy lamb tossed in greens

The mains were served with sticky rice and veg noodles.

To sum up the meal we had
Mango ice cream with Coconut shavings - Don't know but I feel the chef did it the other way round, it should have been tender coconut ice cream with fresh mango :P, jokes apart, not that a good ice cream.

Overall, the dinner was enjoyed by us all, loved the vegetarian part more than being on the other side of the food chain.

The Cafe has been around for several years and their quality has been consistent as also the variety they offer. Prefer the Thai cuisine, of which the chef seems to have got a right hang of the spices. They also deliver at home if the order is a certain minimum amount and within their radius. Of course, because of the undpredictable traffic they don't give any time commitments for the delivery. The take away is packed neatly.
The quantity of each service is value for money.
Pleasant enough place to lunch and dine too.
