Located on the second floor in the Jalsa building at Golf Course Road, I have never had the heart to stop here (Gurgaon goers would probably know that this area boasts to some crazy crowd) until a group of friends got me here by chance. And was I grateful to them!
As I stepped in I was welcomed into a beautiful semi open aired restaurant with wooden tables and benches. With a direct view of the night sky above you, strings of colourful fabric with the famous ‘om mani padme hum‘ chants made you feel like you were right at a cafe in the hills.
They offer authentic Tibetan fare in a relaxing atmosphere. The menu selection was a dimsum lovers paradise and we felt spoilt for choice.
Get Set Grub:
~ Chicken steamed momos – Personally I felt it was the best item on the menu. Moist succulent chicken filling. Momos cooked to perfection. Soft thin dough covering.
~ Oroma mutton – Interesting preparation with a keema like filling which was slightly on the sweet side.
~ Sumai pork – Slightly disappointing as they were more dough wrappings with little or no filling inside. Frankly I couldn’t say if the filling inside was pork or not. You could probably give this a miss.
~ Fried chicken momos – Super oily super crispy momos loaded with succulent chicken filling.
~ Ladakhi pork – Again the pork was a let down. Maybe I will try this preparation with chicken the next time.
Hit and miss:
Their chicken preparations seem to be their strong suit. Avoid the pork. Good food and portions. Their chilli sauce is the real deal! Cool corner spots for a group to hang privately. Slow service. Women watch out – dirty loos.
Go back for:
Laid back attitude. Chill vibes. Great music. Hilltop cafe feel.
Tips & Tricks:
Remember to bring your own booze from the shops downstairs before you make the two floor climb. Hit the place on a cool summer/warm winter night to appreciate the setting.
