One of the major reasons I enjoy living in Gurgaon is the fact that you can enjoy some freshly brewed beers at the numerous breweries in the city. Factory by Sutra is spread across three floors and a rooftop to die for. As you enter you are welcomed by the large beer vats that set the stage for what is to come.
The first floor has a set up for a live band, a sprawling bar, gorgeous verandah and a funky wooden themed interior with thick ropes and hanging spotlight table lamps. Be it the rustic walls, circular metal dinner plates, retro posters or old school resonate the factory theme in sync. The restaurant can easily accommodate large groups with a spacious set up inside.
Factory by Sutra has gained quick popularity with beer nerds like us for their full bodied brews. As we walked in the server gave us tasters and profiles of each beer. We tried the Lager beer and Dunkel wheat beer that make for the perfect accompaniment with their food. They also have some crazy cocktail concoctions like Factory Blast and Circuit breaker so go ahead and pick what suits you for you are sure to be pleased.
Get Set Gobble
Since the beginning of the meal the server was involved and eager to share their insights on the menu pointing out dishes that we should order. Ordering from such a vast menu of options can be a frustrating task that I am proud to say I have almost mastered. With a selection of North Indian, Chinese and Continental items, a good place to start is with their Delhi 6 golgappas stuffed with bhel puri and topped with aloo tikki…yumm! The Kurkure bhindi nachos guarantee bursts of flavour and texture in every bite!
For mains we suggest you try their Mutton keema with khameeri roti or pav bhaaji with paneer served on little thelas. Their Mix veg biryani is served in a platter with homemade raita and salan curry which is not only a feast for the eyes but for your palette as well.
Their Lal maans served with Mumbai pav and pickled onions is cooked to tender perfection and is lip-smackingly good. Alternatively try the Lemon garlic fish marinated with mustard and thyme that melts in your mouth with every bite. The food portions are fairly good and the presentation is kept trendy.
Once again I found myself back with the menu, looking to order something sweet. We settled for the Chocolate lava cake with oozing salty chocolate sauce served with vanilla ice cream and Chocolate rum balls. In the end we left happy, drunk and with a tummy filled beyond compare!
