Most of the restaurants who try to appeal to all end up being liked by none. Fortunately Cocoa House is different. It is a coffee shop which serves snacks, is a lounge pub and also picks up mish-mash of cuisines to serve the hungry souls.
Located in Welldone Tech Park building at Sohna Road is a popular hangout for the corporate employees there. Interiors are simple but have a heart. Importantly, to encourage corporate staff to spend time there also offers printer and free Wi-Fi.
The ABC (Apple Beetroot Carrot; 120) juice was made fresh and healthy. Chicken Shish Touk (150) was soft and juicy and was served with Hummus and pita bread. Hummus was also made well but it could have done with little less Tahini. Harabhara kebab (140) had plenty of spinach and crunch of cashew. It was a lovely dish. At the same time Mutton Seekh Kebab (199) disappointed; the most expensive starter but stale. There was a peculiar smell from the kebabs and we were happy leaving it and moving on the main course.
We ordered for the Perky Poach fish (290) which was a delight. A fish like basa which is soulless was brought to life by the chef and it went extremely well with the little sauce served along. This is one dish which is strongly recommended when you visit Cocoa House. Chicken in Thai red Curry (275) was again a comfort food though I would have loved it more for being a little hotter.
The brownie served with icecream at Rs100 was a steal. Music is nice and prices are competitive. Happy hours on drinks which are anyway priced much below the competition makes it even more attractive for the office goers to stay back and party.
