Ninkasi has a beautiful location at the top of Star Mall in Gurgaon. The posters of the Beer Goddess reinforce the theme that beer is indeed a divine drink and we couldn’t agree more 😀
Ninkasi is born of the thought that it is not to be only another craft brewery but they wanted to do things a bit differently. The interiors are absolutely lovely and you are bound to fall in love with the sheer amount of open space they have inside. As you enter, you can see large beer vats to your right, the bar to your left, a dance floor right in front of you, a DJ deck on the top floor and also an outdoor area if you want to step out and enjoy some beautiful scenery that Gurgaon has to offer. This is certainly one place that beer geeks will love!
Get Set Gobble
As is customary, we started off with a beer sampler to see the different flavour profiles of beer on offer which are Belgium Wheat (also our top pick), German Rye, American Light Lager, Cider, Ninkasi Special and Master’s Brew.
We tried a couple of things from their menu and were pleasantly surprised at the dishes on offer. Apart from the regular bar snacks and light bites, they have some massive platters of meat that are certainly worth digging into.
We suggest trying the Sausage Platter complete with a fried egg on top and sauerkraut on the side. The Grilled Pomfret fish was a standout dish for us with a whole pomfert cooked in a spicy marinade; crispy skin on the outside and absolutely tender inside.
One look at the Ninkasi Special Naan will leave you drooling at the sheer size and toppings on it. With so many choices, we also sampled their Chicken dimsums, Maas ke soley, Grilled chicken and Vegetarian Kebab Platter. To end our meal we indulged in their Dal Makahani, Murg Tikka Butter Masala and some Garlic naan.
One thing that stands out is their attention to flavour of each dish despite all the different cuisines on offer making them all very enjoyable.
The food portions are fairly generous, the service is good, the ambiance is pleasant and all in all we had quite a blast!
