Places to eat out in Delhi
Well, not exactly Delhi, but more the NCR region. There were 3 of us friends (from school, way back) meeting along with family. So 3 wives and 1 kid (around 1 year old). So there were a lot of things that we had to take care of because of the kid such as preferably eating in a mall, so that the kid could be entertained with a lot of hustle-bustle. In addition, at this age, the kid needs a high chair so that she can sit at the table, otherwise the mother will have to keep running around to look after the kid. And of course, on this day (Sunday), India were meeting Australia in a cricket match that had promises of turning out to be a good match.
And the final catch was that this was supposed to be a cross-state initiative. The family with the kid was coming from Gurgaon, and the other 2 sets were in Delhi and Noida. So a lot of distance involved as well.
None of this worried me. Except for the distance, everything else would be fine. So we decided that Noida would be the place of congregation. Where to eat would be the big question. Thought of plenty of places - Bamboo shoots, Yellow Chilli, Lavanya, Moti Mahal, Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Yo China, Punjabi by Nature, and then the various restaurants in Center Stage Mall - Mcdonalds, Mircheez, Barista, Cafe Coffee Day, Ruby Tuesday, Geoffreys, and then a couple more that were there. Just thinking about these made life difficult, there are so manyand it is difficult to pick one. But then after some more thinking, we zeroed onto restaurants in the mall. Further classification - which one of these would actually serve liquor (beer and some other drinks). Down to a very small number.
We decided that we would actually go there and then figure out the best bet. Assembled at the Center Stage parking in Sector 18 and went off to Ruby Tuesday. They had a high chair, non-smoking zone and a TV. But for some reason, they could not show the match. So we tried Geoffrey's, they did not have a high chair. We did a bit more climbing and there was some restaurant whose name started with 'Mamm *' something that is 2 floors above Geoffrey's. No TV, no luck. By this time, we decided that Ruby Tuesday was fine enough.
Food was not bad (although people preferring Indian foods would not find anything there), drink variety was also fine. Overall experience was pretty nice and we spent quite some time over there. However, the bill for 6 people with small amount of liquor, food came to Rs. 5000, which is fairly high.
