Best Restaurants in Gurgaon

Much has changed since I shifted to Gurgaon over five years ago. The high rises have multiplied, Offices are much swankier, Roads are much crowded and there is no dearth of good eating out places. Earlier, a good restaurant would have taken us on the roads to Delhi. Not anymore. Nor does anyone want to travel great distance for a routine meal, but that shouldn’t be the reason to deprive us of a good outing.

Since on an average I receive couple of queries daily on the places to go for a particular cuisine, I have compiled my suggestions which should come handy for the readers.

I keep eating out often, but the list may still be constrained by my limitation of not having tried some good outlets. Hence the list would be updated every two months to keep it fresh and useful. For a detailed review of the outlet, click on the restaurant name.

Wish you happy eating and will look forward to your comments and suggestions. Your inputs may be sent to reviews@indianfoodfreak.com
