Restaurant Review: Elf Cafe & Bar, Hauz Khas Village, New Delhi – 5/5 Star

053 (2)

Eat, Love , Fun…. ambience, atmosphere, vibrant, music, cocktails, food, hospitality, concept..innovative, Cartoons on the wall, focused lighting thru lampshades..,  No doubt its my kind of place.


Extensive alcoholic and non-alcoholic menu and in case you are confused.. just ask for Bartender’s special Mocktail …….. its superb and very refreshing .

Food, .. just wow… wide variety of veg starters to choose from ( I am a vegetarian-:)  

       Delicious Chili Paneer which was of extremely soft Paneer.

       Crispy from outside and creamy/soft from inside Dahi ke Kabab served with green Chutney .

       Creamy spaghetti with olives

       Pahadi ( पहाड़ी ) Menu was a surprise.  मसालेदार Wai Wai with Tabasco Sauce was just great.

       Paneer tikka thin crust pan pizza with onions and paneer was OK type..

       In dessert , I had brownie with vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce.

Elf also hosts ‘ Live it Up’ , 7 to 10 pm .. a new concept where anyone can perform front of a live audience sitting in Elf..

Met Mr Swaraj, the man behind Elf. I really impressed by his energy and passion about food and hospitality.

My Ratings:

      Ambience :  5/5 – Love

      Service : 5/5 – Fun

      Pricing : 4/5 ( Slightly overpriced)

Restaurant Review: Mamagoto, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi – 3.5/5 Star

Visited Mamagoto on 3rd December for @zomato meat up and to review special menu prepared for us.
It was an opportunity to interact with fellow food reviewers of zomato family.

Its a unique place with good colorful decor and paintings. Mamgoto is known for their excellent variety Pan Asian cuisine.

From starters to the main course and desserts everything was excellent in taste and served by humble and polite staff..

Had a wide variety of special veg menu and I also tried their White Rum Cocktail and another whiskey based cocktail. Desserts were wonderful.

Overall good experience and made some good foodie friends.

So , Hunt for the perfect Veg Biryani ends here 🙂
After reading so many positive reviews on Zomato and specially by some foodie friends I decided to give a try.

Veg Biryani was so awesome that it reminded me some good old memories. Paneer Butter masala was so tasty ,smooth and buttery.
A must place for all Bengali’s of Dwarka Smile

Portion size was more then enough ..
Rates : Reasonable
Delivery Time – 45 minutes

Disappointment  :
– Vegetarian menu having only 4 items.

Restaurant Review: Dunkin’ Donuts Vasant Vihar, New Delhi – 3.5/5 Star

010 (2)

Not really a fan of any Dunkin Donuts 🙂


The chained stores of Dunkin’ Donuts’ has great-tasting food and beverages, they include a wide variety of hot and iced coffee, teas, shakes, frozen drinks, lattes and cappuccinos. They do add drops of liquid flavors. These add calories to the drink.
Clean restaurant and attentive staff serves you with a friendly smile. You can sit enjoying your coffee and no one will bother you.
Ordered Spicy veg Burger and Chef’s Special veg Burger. Both were good but not  as great as I was expecting. Latte was not at par with CCD or Starbucks .
Got 2 Donuts free on my order 🙂 and both were fresh and really tasty & soft. ( Death by Chocolate and Bav Crm Chocolate)

Overall rating :
Ambiance : 4.5/5
Food : 3.5/5
Pricing : 3/5 ( Pricey)
Service : 4.5/5

Restaurant Review: Hong Kong Express, Dwarka, New Delhi – 4/5 Star

008

Ok, another Chinese outlet with big expectations 🙂

Its a small but neat and clean outlet basically for home delivery with Hardly 6-8 seating capacity.
Dishes are just wow, but you cant call them truly authentic Chinese.. 🙂
Great taste  and value for money. Portion size more then enough.
Service is very polite and personal.
Spicy Lemon Coriander Soup was good but not as great as recommended by the person taking orders.  You can easily avoid this and go for normal Tomato or any other variants .
Singapore style veg noodles  which were really tasty and perfectly cooked with lots of vegetables. After long time I had such delicious noodles.
Crispy Honey Chilli Potato were perfectly crispy, with lots of honey and sesames. But Chilli was missing. I pointed out this to the person at counter.

Over all good experience. Still lots of things on menu which I found interesting. Will try next time.

Suggestion :
Lots of flies. Install air curtain.
